First off, the Mexican poncho is one of the most famous pieces of traditional Mexican clothing in the world. They are usually a little bit western in their look and they are not to be confused with the brightly colored serape blankets that a piece of Mexican culture. The poncho is without sleeves but it is not a vest. It is the original snuggie you could say. It is literally a Mexican blanket with a hole in it. The blanket used is a falsa blanket which tends to be thicker than a traditional serape blanket.

A baja shirt on the other hand, is also known as a baja hoodie or baja sweater because it is a sweater with a hood, long sleeves and a pocket in the front to keep your hands warm.

Because of this the hippie hoodie has gone on to be called a drug rug because of it’s association with hippies. So now you know the difference between a baja shirt and a Mexican poncho.
