Jesus Loves this Guy by Local Celebrity [Review]

by Andy on October 24, 2008


This tee is a bit of an odd one for me to review, because I’m not a Christian or religious in any way whatsoever (I do follow Andyology though), but to be completely honest I don’t think that it really matters. Just think about how much religious terms have been diluted away from their original meanings, how often when you hear someone say the word God are they actually talking in a religious sense rather than just using a throwaway line. If you don’t get what I mean, check out Oh My Science, a clever Twitter mashup which replaces every instance of ‘God’ on Twitter with ‘Science’. I sat watching the messages scroll for about 5-10 minutes and not once did a message come up that was actually discussing something religious.


As I do with all the vaguely religious tees I’ve received, I checked with my Christian friend whether it was ok for me to wear it, and she said yes (and informed me that “he does”, which is nice), so I guess I’m not blaspheming too much, although I can’t imagine many other non-religious people wearing a tee like this since if I wore it out in public people would make presumptions about my faith. People in the UK hold very different attitudes about religion to those of you in the US, its fine for people to have faith, but to wear clothes about it is pretty unusual. The design itself is fairly classic Local Celebrity style, y’know, simple, slightly retro graphics with a font that wouldn’t be out of place in the 70s and 80s, and makes you look like you’re filled to the brim with bravado, when in reality you’re actually just having a little fun.


Whilst the message of the design isn’t for me, the quality of the tee definitely is. Once again, Local Celebrity have produced a tee that you would struggle to better anywhere at any price range. I’m a bit like a broken record here, but it needs repeating again and again that these Local Celebrity tees really are top notch, and their printing style means that they actually do start to look more vintage after a few washes, rather than just looking washed out like a lot of tees might.

    Laburno, the 6th tee in the gallery (the last one), represents the colour best, I was taking the shots under a CFL bulb, and its hard to balance the colours correctly.
