Various claims for the distinctive style have been made, from Mexico to other Latin American countries to the Philippines.[3][4] A version of the shirt's origins claims that Mexicans originated it in either the state of Veracruz or the Yucatán Peninsula. One theory holds that it was during the era of trade routes through the Caribbean that the Mexican shirts got to Cuba and were…
