    Yo busco una foto buena de una guayabera. Yo deseo comprender que es una guayabera.

    I'm looking for a good picture of a "guayabera." I want to know what a "guayabera" is.

    Is it one of those baggy, ghetto shirts people wore in the 1990s?

    The definition on wordreference.com says it's a short, loose-fitting shirt. I was looking on http://www.google.es in its picture section for guyaberas, but I kept getting pictures of dress shirts. What exactly is a guayabera?

    Gardía Márquez received his Nobel Prize not in white tie, but in a guayabera.

    I have an opinion-concept about this, which may be right or not.
    Guayabera (st. named camisaco) is a shirt intended to be used over the trousers, and it has two coat-like pockets (which are not part of a standard shirt).
    Do you agree?

    Anyway, I like your link, lily8.

    Y por la cantidad de bolsas que tiene, en una pones los cacahuates, en otra la cerveza, en otra los cigarros y voilá, tienes un Guayabar.
