Finding the Right Baja Hoodie

How to tell if your buying the right baja hoodie

  • Where is the baja hoodie made?
             Even though they say the baja hoodie is not Mexican, buying a baja hoodie from mexico sure makes a difference. Preferably you want to get  a baja hoodie from Tijuana if you can get into particulars with the seller how ever it is not too much of a concern
  • How much the baja hoodie is?
            Baja hoodies are generally priced between €30 – €45. If you see a baja hoodie for more than this you are probably being ripped off, if you see a baja hoodie for less than this it’s probably not the best quality but you can’t go wrong if it’s less than €30.
  • Make sure your baja hoodie is not second hand

A lot of people have owned a baja hoodie and often you will find them on second hand websites. Do not buy them as there is generally a good reason for their sale. Generally the elbows of the baja hoodies get worn down after ten years and a lot of people selling baja hoodies second had are cleaning out their closest. ( the fact though that people still have their baja hoodies ten years later is a good indication that the baja hoodie is pretty good )

  • Buy from the nearest e-store

Whenever you are buying something oonline it is always worth paying a couple extra euros to get it from a local e-store as there is less complications if things go wrong when buying your baja hoodie.

Baja hoodies and the 70’s

Baja hoodies were an icon of the 70’s hippie colonies on the west coast of America, to be precise mainly California. California is situated right next to the Mexican border which made it particularly easy for the baja hoodie to find it’s way into this explosive community of hippies.

Baja hoodies were well suited to the hippies as they were handmade and organic a lot of the time and the hippies loved this side to the hoodie. It wasn’t long before nearly every hippie in town was wearing a baja hoodie. The baja hoodies bright colours and alternative style struck gold with the hippies and finally found it’s home. It wasn’t long though before the hippie colonies started to die of in the late 70’s and 80’s and with it the era of the baja hoodie too.

In the ever lasting vintage trend at the minute, baja hoodies are coming back into fashion. The once hippie icon is making it’s way back as a vintage hoodie so make sure to get yours soon.
