EXTRA LARGE BAJAS The 1X LARGE Baja is for Medium to Large sized people. When we say Authentic we mean Authentic as these are sized for the Mexican population who are traditionally smaller than the US population.
So a 1X LARGE Baja is basically a US LARGE AUTHENTIC MEXICAN BAJA’S Alpaca Pete’s Authentic Mexican Baja’s Are Made from a unique blend of a Mexican blanket material. In the mid 60’s the surfers from California would come out of the cold Pacific water and the vendors would traditionally sell them blankets made out of this material.
The surfers would cut slits in the blankets and wear them as serapes. Eventually, the vendors started to sew them into jackets like these. They were called Baja’s after the Famous Surfing area on the Mexican Baja. Not sold in the big chains these Authentic Baja’s are a bargain!
The Authentic Mexican Bajas run small. The best thing to do is FOR SURE buy ONE SIZE UP from what you would normally buy.
If you like your jackets/ hoodies/ sweaters to hang lose you might consider buying two sizes up.
Although we advise against using a conventional dryer you can always throw them in a preheated dryer a few minutes to shrink them down a bit.
Cold water wash with a MILD detergent on GENTLE CYCLE.
LAY FLAT TO DRY on a towel and NEVER use the complete drying cycle of a conventional dryer as the WILL SHRINK if you do so.
