Someone should buy four of these. Add a lot of beer and a use will just appear I think.

Wow, those do look fun! Hmm, the Cutters had mentioned maybe doing a "Quinceañera" for next year. Perhaps some kind of bumper ball mexican wrestling event could get done? Gotta hit these cats up to see if they're sticking with the Latin theme as I'm trying to look into embroidered guayaberas already...

Traditionally they are four pocket. The one Bryan posted is a new style guayabera, but equally awesome.

These are really big in Latin America at weddings, though they're also worn fairly extensively in Asia. I've seen photos of former Filipino President Marcos wearing one.

I thought they'd look hella bad ass with a scooter club logo on the back, like I've seen folks do with bowling shirts before...

Agreed... I dig the four pockets, plenty of places to put your tools while working.

Ok, Airborne's not posting, so I'll say it for him. "Nice blouse."

What Marcos (and the rest of us Flips) wore is a barong tagalog, which translates to "clothing of the Tagalog people". This formal wear formerly known as a camisa Filipina was brought to Mexico in the 16th century, making it a forerunner of the guayabera.

Modern versions are made of poly-blend or silk, but strict traditionalists prefer ones piña fabric woven from beaten pineapple fiber or Jusi which is banana silk.
Ey-o, o-ey.

Tedford, thanks for the heads up on this! I've been wearing Guayaberas my entire life and wondered about their origins.

So the shirts ARE pacific in origin, the guayabera is the Latin American spin off. Kind of like 2 tone was the Euro Spin off of Ska...

Yeah, I got married in one of those, made from pineapple fiber. In retrospect, I should have just eaten the pineapple instead....
