Review: Fold Laundry by Local Celebrity

I can’t believe that I’m going to hit the heights of fashion blogger cliché-dom, but Local Celebrity are so hot right now. I saw one of their tees on MTVs Real World, and they’re being worn by Pax Jolie-Pitt, Nick and Aaron Carter, and Carrie Underwood. I know those guys aren’t A-list, but it does get me a little excited that I get sent the same tees as a a freakin’ Backstreet Boy!

In a lot of American sitcoms there seems to be a group of people that meet up once a month and play poker, it seems to be as much of an American pastime as baseball. It isn’t quite as big in the UK, but there’s been quite a lot of poker tournaments on our sports TV channels, and when I was at university quite a lot of people seemed to be into playing a casual game, even if we would often squabble about the rules. Whether the game/sport is popular in the UK or not, clothing based on gambling seems to be pretty big, cards and poker slogans seem to really lend themselves to vintage look tees and polo shirts. I can only presume that this kind of clothing is just as popular in the US.

The tee has a good vintage look to it, and the two-tone printing on the orange helps to enhance that 70s feel. The stitching on the shoulders feels as if its a bit thicker than with a usual tee, and I don’t know why, but that kind of gives it more of a vintage feel as well. In terms of quality, it feels like an American Apparel tee, and its cut like an American Apparel tee, so it may very well be an American Apparel tee.

As an added bonus, if you buy this tee, you’re automatically entered into a prizedraw in which some people will be flown to either Los Angeles or Las Vegas to play in a private one table tournament with a pro-player called Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, pretty sweet, eh?

    I actually haven’t noticed many people wearing gambling tees… maybe it’s just where I am, or maybe I just haven’t been on the lookout.

    Looks like Local Celebrity has some great PR!
