The romance of the shirt: Reinterpreting traditional Mexican clothing

What makes up the quintessential Mexican shirt?  If you put the question to local designer and workshop owner Alejandro Julian, he has a ready and detailed answer.

As a design entrepreneur with deep roots in the Jalisco region, he has an established following among the clothing cognoscenti, who trek regularly to his elegant showroom tucked away in a corner of his native Santa Tere neighborhood in Guadalajara. 

“Our clothing is an updated version of traditional (guayabero) shirts with echoes of styles from across the many regions of Mexico,” explains the soft-spoken designer.  “We have taken these familiar regional elements and made them more contemporary by combining both hand-made, individual quality with more modern details for both men and women.”    With a tuck here or there, a longer hem, or a seam that flatters a curve of the body, the clothing is both elegantly casual and timelessly Mexican.
