Baja Top: Unisex Jerga in Black and White
Mexican Jergas or Baja tops are very practical hooded outwear made from a cotton acrylic blend which gives them a durable rustic exterior with a soft, cosy brush interior. Historically they are associated with the culture of hippies, surfers and skateboarders in North America and often appear as the garment of choice for “dudes” in films, notably Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
The weave of the fabric makes the Baja both breathable and warm and therefore a firm favourite for festivalgoers and people involved in outdoor sporting activities. The tops are great for cool summer evenings and are available in sizes generous enough to wear with multiple layers underneath.
