Anglican and Roman Collar Guayabera 

By  Alexis Martin

Designed decades ago with the tropical climate in mind, our Clergy Guayabera Shirts evolved to be a cultural representation of Cuba, Mexico, and most Latin America. They are also very comfortable and look great on just about everyone. My Cuban Store offers the style in both short and long sleeve fashions. This shirt represents the cultural ties of the Hispanic world. The Clerical Guayabera reinforces your identity with the community and makes an excellent gift for your priest or minister. Clergy Guayaberas transcend the cultural divide. This clergy Guayabera shirt, also known as a Clergy Panama shirt, features the clerical collar known as clergy collar or Roman collar.

What Does the Collar Represent?

A collar is a sign of a person's religious calling. It helps others in the community to identify them, regardless of their faith. Worn by priests worldwide, the clerical collar is a narrow, stiff, and upright white collar that fastens at the back. The collar is an important element of a priest's formal and casual apparel, and it is best represented by the small white rectangle that can be visible poking through the space of a black tab collar shirt. Some priests, however, prefer to wear a full band clerical collar, which exposes the white collar all the way around their neck.

Our Guayabera shirt collars are hybrid. You can wear either a tab collar (as most Catholic Priests do) or a full neckband collar, also known as a dog collar (Anglican or Protestant). The Guayabera is a versatile piece of clothing. It is famous for being super breathable in hot climates; hence, these are great shirts for these long summer days.

I'm a first-generation Cuban immigrant. I have a passion for everything Cuba. I love to share our culture and my expertise in the world-famous Guayabera Shirt. On December 18, 2002, I sold my first Cuban Guayabera shirt online. I fell in love with the process and the fact that this is a business, you always have to be willing to learn. Many things have changed since then, new software services, new concepts. At Mycubanstore.com, we had been able to ride different market waves. We are always humbled and grateful for this privilege of building a future in this great country.
