Retro Cuban shirts, what are they? 

By  Alexis Martin

Guayaberas are also known as retro Cuban shirts. The guayabera is a traditional shirt worn in the island since the mid 1800’s.

From he dictionary:

Retro means :
adjective

  1. imitative of a style, fashion, or design from the recent past.”retro 60s fashions”

Guayaberas have been around for a long time, therefore this retro Cuban shirt is a fashion worn by people since decades ago.

For instance here is a picture of Mr. Ernest Hemingway celebrating its Nobel prize in Cuba. Mr Hemingway is wearing one of these guayabera also known as retro Cuban shirts.

Further more the guayabera its been part of the American and international landscape for some time now too.

Prince Harry dressed in a Guayabera appears in his element as he shakes some moves with the local woman.

How about some blues with that retro Cuban shirt? Guayaberas are known favorites to Mr. Clapton.

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.
