NYC-based menswear designer Todd Snyder has updated and upgraded the classic Guayabera Shirt, popularized in Mexico and Cuba amongst other countries in the regions. 

It's cut from a breezy 100% cotton fabric sourced in Japan, which features a thin daube stripe running vertically through it for subtle contrast and style points. And though it's been traditionally worn as a heatwave-ready dress garment in lieu of a sports coat, Snyder and co. note it's best served as a shirt or shirt jacket. 

Pairing nicely with Persols and single-digit SPF, you can add it to the wardrobe here
