Guayabera shirts are mostly considered formal attire. They are also used for very special occasions for instance customers prefer the men’s long sleeve guayabera shirts.

I find the guayabera shirt been as dressy as a suit, for certain celebrations.

The guayabera shirts are used in lieu of a suit for destination weddings, Havana nights parties and corporate events. Guayaberas are official government attire in Cuba.

A white long sleeve guayabera shirt is considered the most formal and traditional of the long sleeve guayabera shirts.

  • White
  • Light blues
  • Beige
  • Ivory

Light tone colors are above all preferred for Caribbean or other hot climates. However many other colors are also very popular.

Guayabera shirts, selecting your fabric type.

Linen is the fabric of choice of traditional guayaberas. Been a natural fabric from the flax plant and its a millennial fabric, in fact the mommies in Egypt are wrapped in linen.

This fabric has great benefits for hot weather mainly because its fresh light weight and cools easy. Linen is woven together in a way that allows for more air flow than any other fabric. It is moisture absorbency and comfortable.

Linen is less likely to cling to your sky therefore allowing more ventilation and air flow.

Cotton Blend Guayaberas

Cotton blend guayaberas are very versatile while maintaining the traditional features. This makes the shirts very easy to care for, as they are machine washable and do not wrinkle as the linen.

These cotton blend guayabera shirts are mostly a polyester and cotton blend. Mostly 65% polyester and 35% cotton in a light weight fabric. With these shirts you will find a great variety of colors.

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.

  1. The guayabera shirts are remarkable. I was given a bone-colored short sleeve shirt. And what an outstanding shirt for looking good, keeping you cool and never having to worry if it was or was not the right thing to wear. When I would show up I looked good and you could tell by the others not wearing one and they would come up and ask what it was and where did I get it. Very nice shirt to have in your collection.
