We have noticed a rise of unintentionally misinformed beliefs about Baja Hoodies on the internet. Unfortunately, not everything you read on the internet is true, and some of the sources for information are disputable. That is why we have decided to put to rest some of these beliefs. We have taken it upon ourselves to bust the myths about the Baja Hoodie.

This is untrue. Hippies, a U.S subculture that arose in the 1960s and 1970s in a counter-cultural movement, were some of the first to make the hoodie known to mainstream American fashion. However, it didn't stop there. Almost simultaneously, the surfer subgroup also began wearing the it. What does this tell you? Were these two groups on a mission to be the first to characterize this article clothing? Absolutely not. The credit to the hoodie's popularity goes to the hoodie. People began wearing it because of its comfort, unique fashion design, color variations, and versatility. Anyone from the sunny coasts to the Woodstock attendee found it the perfect thing to wear no matter what the climate or event. That is why it is still fashionable and stylish and popular among many groups today from high schoolers to college students.
Myth #2) The Baja Hoodie originated from Baja, Mexico.
False again. The word baja describes the material used to make the hoodie. The fabric derives from Central and South America where camel hair was finely twined and woven to make artistic designs and fabrics. Later, with the introduction of sheep by european colony settlers, wool was introduced and became a mainstream material for clothing and textiles. So, next time someone comments on their Baja Hoodie that was made in Baja, Mexico you can bust the myth.

False. There has never been a better time to own and wear one. You can make your own little collection because the variety is endless. There are so many color combinations to choose from. We're in a trend right now where color is cool again. Earth tones and solid colors will always be around, but they're losing popularity. Retro 80′s colors have come back in full force.

And, it can be worn for a night out, lounging around the house, when it's cold and rainy, or when it's warm. The article of clothing is the perfect fit.
Myth #4) They are too expensive.
Busted. They have never been more affordable. Brands like Senor Lopez and Earth Ragz make economically affordable hoodies while maintaining the good quality material and fabrication. Handmade hoodies from Mexico are also extremely durable and garner an authentic look and feel.
Myth #5) Baja Hoodies are cheaply made.
Are you kiddin'? As explained above the quality is superb. We're talking about an origin to the indigenous natives of South America. Clothing that transcends centuries and cultures doesn't do so by being a cheaply made product. Quite the contrary. Hoodies will last as long as you do and because of the preshrunk material in many of the manufacturers the wear will be limited and will maintain its form.
