Dos Carolinas of San Antonio, Texas, is the maker of the world’s finest guayabera shirts. The name “guayabera” derives from guayaba (commonly known here as “guava”) pickers on nineteenth-century Latin American plantations. The classic worker’s shirt had two pin-tucked borders, four pockets, and a roomy fit suitable for a day of work on the plantation. Today’s guayabera might have contrasting borders and embroidery, a collar you can button or not, and short sleeves or long, depending on season or occasion.
Transcending fad and fashion, each Dos Carolinas guayabera is made to order from a huge range of classic menswear shirtings – cotton, linen, even the preppie standby, seersucker.
Come meet Caroline of Dos Carolinas and John L. Ashe as we present her spring and summer 2016 collection of custom-made guayabera shirts on Tuesday, March 22nd from 10am to 6pm. Choose from hundreds of fabric swatches to personally design your guayaberas for the upcoming spring and summer. John L. Ashe is a men’s and women’s specialty clothing store, known for exceptional customer service, exquisite designer clothing, and multi-generational relationships.
