In the tropics, even formal clothing needs to provide relief from the heat. The cotton guayabera is the garment of choice for men from Central America to the Caribbean and beyond. This version, handcrafted in El Salvador, features a pattern called deshilado, where threads are pulled out of the woven fabric to create ventilation. Large patch pockets and thin pleats called alforzas are traditional details on this all-occasion shirt, which is meant to be worn untucked.


Made in El Salvador. 100% cotton. Men’s sizes M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48).


Machine wash.

    Comments about Salvadoran Cotton Guayabera Shirt:

    I got this shirt and several others from NGS, for hot weather science conferences in Hawai'i and Las Vegas (I know, but somebody has to do it). Plenty formal for casual seminars, great material, airy details, keeps it size through washings. Several Central American colleagues asked where I got it - I told them NGS.

          I wish it came in women's sizes. I was hoping the smallest size would fit me, but it was too large.

                Comments about Salvadoran Cotton Guayabera Shirt:

                This shirt arrived looking exactly as shown. The size was also accurate. Great shirt for ventilation. I bought it because my husband gets hot (and is). It is perfect. Haven't had it cleaned yet so I don't know how it holds up, but being a seamstress, it appears to be made extremely well.
