Best Guayaberas, April 2007
 
 

The guayabera—casual wear’s Esperanto—is as at home in Los Angeles as it is in Manila, Havana, and Mexico City, places that all claim the shirt as their own. You know it by the rows of alforzas (tiny pleats) running down the front and back, the many pockets, and the relaxed fit that is kind to every physique. Where better to find one than in our own pueblito, Olvera Street? The merchant stalls overflow with guayaberas, but Casa Bernal has the widest selection. The mainstay is the men’s short-sleeved style, and the blouselike women’s tops are embroidered with colorful flowers. Players choose the Cadillac of the breed: black, with long sleeves
