Default "The Guayabera Lady" Pricing Question

I am thinking of picking up a new guayabera shirt to wear at the Big Smoke Event in a few weeks. I e-mailed Berta at The Guayabera Lady shop. She has not responded yet, but thought I would ask my fellow BOTL:

1. Does anyone have one of her shirts? If so, what are your thoughts?
2. What was the price for the shirt? After looking around online, I thought most of the shirts would be between $50-$100, but then I saw a ebay listing for a Ramon Puig guayabera (Link), and they were asking $455, with the original price being $650!!! Now I am affraid I might be too poor for a shirt!


Thanks for any help you can provide

don't know about this fancy "Ramon Puig guayabera," but I got mine from Mark at Cigarmony probably 5 years ago, with semi-regular use, and it's still in one piece. I think I even paid more than the $30 he's asking for them now, might have to pick up another for good measures

edit: I see there's no larges left, but every other size is covered

I may end up doing that, but I wanted to check the prices of "The Guayabera Lady" first since I have heard a lot of good things about her shop in Miami. I guess in the end the shirts might all be the same.
