Not for nothing is it one of the basics that any man needs in his wardrobe. The linen guayabera is an elegant, immaculate garment, ready to delight.

Unlike the tailored suit that always involves excessive chaining to merely decorative pieces, the guayabera is practical. It has what is necessary to satisfy the needs of the wearer. Its bags match the vertical saddlebags and the embroidery on some of them.

The guayabera itself is a garment that causes a lot of controversy, first of all, about its place of origin since there are endless stories of where this type of shirt was born, on the other hand, many men are confused about where to wear a guayabera.

They think that its use is exclusive for a wedding at the beach, we tell you once and for all, that is a mistake, you can use your linen guayabera in any occasion and you will always have that chic and super fashion touch.

If you are a follower of men's fashion, surely you have noticed that for several years the linen guayabera has been gaining prominence in men's closets.

2. How to wear a guayabera?

If you have a linen guayabera in your closet or if you are thinking of buying one, Linen Horse has several points to consider for its correct use:

1. It should not be too tight. The cut of the guayabera provides some space between the body and the shirt, making it a comfortable and cool garment, it is generally a Regular Fit cut.

2. It is not used with a jacket or tie because it covers the requirements of etiquette by itself. You don't need anything else!

3. You can tie it with a belt to match your shoes, but usually it does not go with a belt because in many occasions it has details in the lower peaks of the garment and you would be hiding them under the pants.

When it comes to comfort and style, linen guayaberas are a great option, thanks to the properties of linen as a conductor of heat, it allows you to be cooler in summer and warm in winter, and by the design of the guayabera shirt, to be fashionable.

Remember to choose a guayabera made of linen or other natural fabrics, as synthetic fabrics are somewhat uncomfortable, generate more heat and are less durable.

If you don't want to sweat, use linen or linen-cotton blends.And don't worry about linen wrinkling, it wrinkles very easily but as we always say, it's a beautiful and natural wrinkle. If you prefer it ironed, in our article : How to iron a guayabera shirt.
