I bought this for my son who typically wears a size Large. Because the Large was out of stock and I read reviews that it ran large, I ordered him a Medium. He was swimming in the medium so my husband who is a 2xl tried it on and it fit him perfectly. I was able to exchange it for a small and he loved it. All in all, great pullover, it just runs extremely big.
Way Cool, Way Oversized!
Awesome detail, fabric, color saturation and style ... just one problem (when ordering), it runs way too large. I'm 6'0"/185 lbs and always fit perfectly in TA's size L, so naturally I ordered this item in that size. I know it's supposed to fit "comfortably loose", but the sizing on this one's ridiculous, the L fits more like an XL/XXL on me! Definitely order at least one size down. Worth getting, so I'm exchanging mine for a size M.
Great Gear. Functional.
I give it 5 stars plus. First off, it looks very cool. It gets cold on a motorcycle at night, even down here. It keeps me very warm, and the material is very sturdy. Buy one.
Very cool reproduction
I'm a San Diego native currently living in Texas. When I saw these hoodies, it was like a trip back in time! It's just like the old pullovers we used to get in Mexico(Ensenada) but nicer! The only problem I had was I ordered a large and was swimming in it! Returned it for a medium, which I have yet to receive. However, I did get to check it out before it went back and it's great! can't wait for the medium to arrive!

Great summer hoodie
Substantial fabric for cool California coast evenings. Easy to wash and runs a little large but is the correct look for the hoodie. My son has received many compliments on it and is thinking of getting another color. Well made!
High quality old-school surfer hoodie
This is my second one of these; I have the indigo one as well. Sizing seems good for me and it's a typical TA Large with a loose fit. I wash in cold water and line dry; no dryer. I get lots of compliments on these hoodies; they look just like what the surfing kids used to buy down in Mexico years ago. Accept no substitutes; hoodies with a smiliar look on the marketplace are very cheaply made in my opinion.
Nueva Baja Pullover
I ordered this in a large. I am 5'10" and 200lbs. When it arrived I thought they had made a mistake because it looked big enough to pitch a tent with. I thought that maybe it came oversized due to shrinkage. I washed and dried the tent and it still came out to be one of the biggest pieces of clothing that I have ever purchased. I really liked it but I sent it back. I don't trust the sizing on this piece so I won't be ordering a different size either. It's really too bad because I really liked it, but I won't spend the money or the time to send it back if it isn't the right size any more. I've ordered large in other articles of clothing and they fit perfectly. What's up with this one?
Perfect cool weather addition...
Weight is perfect over a tee-shirt in cool fall weather or on the beach. I'm 6'1" and weigh 215 with more weight around my waist than's ideal. Before washing the XL was big and loose with sleeves about an inch too long. I washed in it tap cold water once to set the dye, then again in warm to give the cotton a little shrink. Tumble dried it on medium high and it came out exactly as I expected a thick 100% cotton would. The sleeves shrank about an inch, the overall body shrank between a half and a full size. Perfect! Highly recommended if you're in the right climate!? I also bought the Azure Baja Hoodie in XL laundered the same with the same results. I'm just as happy with it. (If you're diligent and patient you can catch these at a great sale price as I did... but you risk them selling out!)
This baja pullover is a wonderful addition to my wardrobe. Keeps you warm when relaxing on a cool September day. Nice loose fit with quality stitching.
Great Quality & Comfortable as Heck
This is a great pull over. Very comfortable. I like it so much I've ordered a second one in another color.
My husband used to have one of these but all the seams frayed. He wears an XL so I bought him an XL and it is a bit loose on him, which is good for a pullover, he wears a size 40 in pants. I showed him the picture in the catalog and he said he would like to have it. He has no interest in buying clothing, so I buy all his clothes and he was very pleased with it.
for one of these for a while. Tourist shops sell the cheap imitations at top prices. This pullover is the real deal and hearkens back to a simpler time. Abounds with quality and attractiveness. I ordered a medium knowing the sleeves and maybe the length would be a bit long. I planned on having it altered but I washed it in cold and dried it and the sleeves and length shrunk an inch and a half and it now fits perfectly over a TTA t-shirt which is the only item I would wear over a pullover of this sort. Very pleased with the purchase.

Got this for hanging around my pool and for vacation atthe beach which it is perfect for. Very good quality, heavy cotton and good looking design.

Had a similar pullover in the 80's and this is it! I found my favorite pullover again.
