Back in the 80s, baja hoodies were all the rage for Southern California surfers.  Part Mexican blanket, part grainsack, these cotton woven jackets with their multi-color broad stripes came over the border to the beach cities up and down the coast and became an instant hit.

Who could forget Jeff Spicoli sporting his hoodie while ordering a pizza in class from the cult hit Fast Times at Ridgemont High?

According to bajahoodiez, the hoodie is not actually from Baja Mexico  but “originated from Central and South America and is closely related to the poncho.”

Lucky for us it has woven its way back into modern times and can be found in beach houses coast to coast where it signals a casual, laid-back lifestyle.  Check it out.
