The origin of the name Guayabera may come from a Cuban legend that tells of a poor countryside seamstress sewing large pockets into her husband's shirts for carrying guava (guayabas) from the field. Guayabera may also have originated from the word yayabero, the word for a person who lived near the Yayabo River in Cuba.
You can see the exiled Cuban in Miami, dressed to the nines in his guayabera, sipping rum and smoking cigars, dreaming of the ousting of Fidel Castro, while enjoying his own version of the American Dream.
