    Default Guayabera

    What is the difference between Cuban, Mexican, Dominican and other Guayabera's, and where would be a good place to shop in the DR, or online?

    Didn't we have a DR1er who opened a shop somewhere, maybe Santiago?

    You can buy locally. Perhaps more expensive and perhaps only lasting a few washes before it begins to unravel.

    With a combined 25 years experience, and 61,943 postings within this web forum, I find postings #1 and 2 to be a bit peculiar at this point in time. Especially, from two well traveled individuals.

    Yes, I find the Canadian versions of this garment to be of higher quality.

    I never shopped for them before.

    In Tampa, many Cubanos and Spaniards wore them, but I never did. I know there were a couple of custom shirt stores in Tampa.

    I'm thinking of going guayabera instead of shirt and ties to meetings. Plus, they are hot.

    So I need some edumacation.

    Basically, as with everything in life, you get what you pay for. If you opt to go the Chacabana route, instead of the traditional suit and tie for a business meeting, do not go.....shall I say "thrifty". The door of the meeting will remain closed with you on the outside looking in.

    It seems to be something one wants to see/feel.... touch

    Some are quite stiff..... I prefer softer fabric
