Worn by president Santos of Colombia on september 26th 2016, as the significant costume to sacralize the peace treaty in Cartagena, this garment is accepted as etiquette wearing in warm climates.
The origins of the guayabera are to be found in rural Cuba, on the bank of the river Yayaba, and it is still discussed if the name is due to the river, or to the Guayaba, a tropical fruit that is found in the same area. It soon became appreciated by dandies and revolutionaries, and its practical and esthetic success helped its expansion to the rest of the caribbean countries, from Mexico to Miami, or Cartagena in Colombia. Nowadays, it is accepted as formal wear so it can be worn in black-tie events.
It is in fact a shirt-jacket with a pleated front, and side openings.
Baruc´s Guayabera also has a secret pocket in the inside, three shown buttons in wood, and other hidden buttons made from mother of pearl.
