Looks like the excessive size, which most people would likely associate with a comic opera, must be a peculiarly Cuban thing, much like the square top cap is to the Poles.

The old style of uniform, worn into the WWII period and after.

I'll say this much for the cartoonish size of the caps. If they waterproofed them, the men wearing them wouldn't need umbrellas in the rain!

Different cuffs on the Guantanamo example. Earlier pattern? (1916 vs the 1930s-40s here on UOTW) Just a Cuban variation? Or an American modification? I did a lot of looking and came up with zero on the hypothetical existence of an American police force at Guantanamo.
