Many of us own a Guayabera. I love modern Guayabera's and am always on the lookout for something a little different. I came across the below. 

Y.A. Bera brand

Now it is not my style (it might be yours) but I would love hear your opinion on guayabera's and ones that tickle your fancy.  Post up some photo's if you can. 

These are some Y.A Bera

Judging from the pictures, I might need to get a couple tribal tatts before I can pull those off

My cousin wore one for his beach wedding a few years ago, and got us guys standing with him the same ones.  Fanatastic shirt...all white, with just a bit of embroidered pattern, and a separate cigar-sized pocket on one side that we all put a Montecristo No 2 (my cousin's favorite cigar) in during the wedding.  We all looked sharp!

I love Guayaberas ! In fact they saved my bacon. After landing in Havana last year the Cuban authorities lost my luggage for a week. In that time I tried to find something my size to wear in Havana. If you wear a L or under you are fine with plenty T-shirts etc. I'm not. All I managed to find were 2 guayaberas in my size which did me for a week. I looked fine sitting down behind a table, but not too sure when stood up revealing my shorts 😜

Certainly not for every occasion, but in the right situation I think they are quite sharp. I lean towards the "quieter" colors though. Hell, I've already got the beard......

Emiliano Nelson in Havana does great custom work; and he's a cigar smoker!

 

Yep, great guy and great Guayaberas ( albeit a bit expensive at ca. 140 CUC a piece ).

Around the corner from Ivan Justo.

Too restrained for you?

 

I do like the idea of something more fitted, but don't much care for the high contrast embroidery of these, though the khaki and gray is pretty nice.

For my own taste, I'm too much of a traditionalist for the Y. A. Bera stuff. It looks fine, but I'd rather go with a white linen ropa vieja item. Those Nelsons look the business!

Actually I am saving up for one of these leather Guagabera from Marc Copti  https://www.becsdesign.store/

Marc allowed me to try one on when we caught up in Havana.  The quality is extreme and it can be worn as a straight guayabera or a very light  jacket.

.......but Colt....that or a fluro green polyester one :D

Saving up?!  :rotfl:

I do like suede shirt/jackets as well :)

 

I do recall you wearing neon green (with neon pink hat) on race day some years back. And a nice pink and white number while visiting Hamlet and family.

When I was in Miami back in March, i was recommended to visit Ramon Puig, just outside Little Havana. HUGE selection, both of colours and styles, and more important quality of cloth. I bought 3 Guayberas, I prefer plain colours, none of this namely pamby patterned crap. The quality of the Irish linen Is superb, and forever they made adjustments for a perfect fit for an extra $20/each. These weren't the cheapest, probably $120 each inc adjustments, but they are very comfy.
