Shirt Of The Anti-Colonialist Future

Temperature's rising; jackets & ties as formalwear will be going the way of the icecaps. Beat the heat w/ a guayabera.
Michael Manley, populist Jamaican prime minister, specifically advocated for the guayabera as an anti-colonialist mode of dress,[20]. Conversely, the shirt was later banned in Parliament by the conservative Jamaica Labour Party[21].
Used to sport one myself, possibly a Mexican variation, which I purchased at the Goodwill.
