new t-shirts at Local Celebrity

The designs that Local Celebrity sell, especially this latest batch, aren’t the typical HYA style, but I feel compelled to post them since the quality of the shirts is fantastic, the samples I was sent a few years ago still look and feel great, and that has to be respected.


Daily Tees & News for December 5th

by Andy on December 5, 2011

boardwalk empire t-shirt

Hope everyone had a good weekend, I did, during my snowboarding lesson at the dry slope it started to snow!

I can’t be the only person that feels kind of scared when this guy comes on screen during Boardwalk Empire, right? Definitely some fine acting going on there. TeeFury.

RIPT have a shirt that I’m sure will not anger any Star Wars or Star Trek fans.

Qwertee have dropped a Shining/Joker shirt for Jack Nicholson fans.

local celebrity cheap hoodies

You saw the headline, quick, run to Local Celebrity and get a cheap hoodie!


cheap hoodies

I can’t quite believe that this deal is the right way around, but from what I can tell, it is. Local Celebrity will give you two hoodies for free when you buy one hoodie.

Buy any 1 hoodie and get 2 additional hoodies of your choice, FREE!!
In the “comments” section of your order, please list your top 4 favorite hoodies in order of priority with the desired size of each, and we will send you the first two that we have in stock, in addition to the one you purchased.

How crazy is that? Hoodies are $65 at Local Celebirty normall, so with this deal you’ll be getting them for $21.66 each, you’ll be practically stealing them. No word on when this offer will stop, so if you’re interested place your order sooner rather than later.


fake it til you make it LA t-shirt

Ahhh, right, I can see how you’d think I’m a driver for a project management business, but actually I’m a superstar t-shirt blogger, I’m kind of famous on the internet. Oh no, no need to apologise, it’s an easy mistake to make.

megan fox t-shirt

When I say “just like me!” I mean that I have the same shirt and love to show off my midriff whilst wearing it too. The shirt is most definitely made (under license) by our buddies over at Local Celebrity, but unfortunately it doesn’t appear to be sold anymore, as they only have one Voltron-loving design left on sale and it isn’t this one. Oh well, I guess that’s just one more step between you and looking like Megan Fox. [via The Superficial]

109 I love NY style t-shirts for you to love

by Andy on December 14, 2009


After the success and popularity of my previous list posts such at the 202 Star Wars t-shirts and robot lists (and of course the ridiculously meta list of t-shirt lists), I started saving up links of tees that fit into various categories, but there’s no point me just saving them up indefinitely, so it’s about time I started posting all these lists, most of them don’t quite breach the lofty barrier of more than 100 items in a list, but as they say, it’s not the size, it’s the amount of time Andy spent thinking up the metaphor.

As fasr as t-shirts go, few are more iconic than the design Milton Glaser created to help promote New York (the state, not just the city) back in the 70s. That design has gone on to be used in hundreds of different ways and become part of American pop culture, so it’s hardly surprising that the style has found it’s way onto more than a few t-shirts.

As ever with my list posts, THEY ARE NOT IN ANY RANKED ORDER, the numbers are merely there to keep track of the amount of tees in the list. I say this every time and no one seems to listen, it’s as if you skip the intro and move straight on to all the tees! Also, there are some affiliate linked shirts in there, so it’s possible I will earn money from people buying certain t-shirts on this list, but as I’ve listed just about as many as I could find, it’s hardly surprising that some of the companies have affiliate programmes. Some of the tees in the list are sold out already, and depending upon the success of this post some of them could become sold out in the future, but they could also be reprinted, so in many ways these tees are like Schroedinger’s cat before you click on the link. The list has been split into two pages to make things a little bit easier on my server, but please click through to the second page, because some of my favourites are on there and I think the list finishes pretty strongly, so they’re all worth checking out.

As ever, any exposure you can give to the list (stumble, tweet, delicious bookmark, blog post, digg, ill-considered full-back tattoo) will be greatly appreciated, and I’ll write up a thank you post with links back to everyone that helped in a couple of weeks. Now let’s go love some t-shirts!

Rocky, Running by Local Celebrity

by Andy on November 20, 2009


I will grant you that this is a fairly standard design, there’s not really much to a still from a film and a logo, but there’s something about Rocky that makes me feel like it should just be given a pass, and even though it isn’t the kind of shirt that the ‘t-shirt guy’ should be wearing (being a ‘t-shirt guy’ is a lot like indie music, if everyone understands your shirts, there’s no point wearing them) I like it. Also, I was folding some Local Celebrity tees a couple of days ago and I was amazed at how soft they were and how well they’d stood up to multiple washes.

Oh, and just because I pretty much have to mention this, one of the times I visited the Rocky Steps/Steps up to the Art Museum, there was a guy in the full Rocky outift running up the steps. It. Was. Awesome.

where's waldo t-shirt

I’m a total sucker for the concept of a Where’s Waldo t-shirt, it’s such a clever use of all-over printing, which is why I mentioned a rather similar tee from Local Celebrity back in January. I’m usually a bit questioning when it comes to all-over prints because they’re really difficult to do well, but LCs prints are really good, so I’d have unnecessarily high expectations for this tee.

Local Celebrity also have a big sale going on with a whole load of tees available for the bargain price of $10 a pop. Guys go here, ladies head this way.

Can you imagine if I wore this? The levels of irony would be so dangerously high that if I started listening to Journey at the same time I’m pretty sure the world would kerplode.

I’m going to be straight up with you, I have no idea who Alvaro Ilizarbe is, and when I got an e-mail from Fabulous Nobodies (FABNOB, who I also hadn’t encountered before, though they count me as a friend in their sidebar, so they must be good people) asking if it was ‘worthy of a mention on HYA’ I figured it wouldn’t be, because why would I point you towards an interview with someone I’d never heard of? But I was putting the cart before the horse, and I actually enjoyed the interview, and finding out about Alvaro’s clothing line, Freegums.


FABNOB, who apart from having a name that makes us Brits titter, seem to be trying to bring good non-Aussie brands to Australians, kind of like Electric Press are doing in the UK. At the moment they’ve got Dance Party Massacre, Seibei, Glamour Kills, Imaginary Foundation and Local Celebrity on their roster, amongst others, so if you’re Australian and sick of paying exorbitant shipping fees when buying from non-native brands, FABNOB would probably be worth a look.


I have no clue who Selena Gomez is, I was going to Google her name and find out why people should/would give a damn about her, but then I realised that I probably already know more about celebrities than a lot of people should, and that I’d just appreciate this picture for what it is, a girl wearing a cute tee with Casper the Friendly Gohst on it holding a massive ice cream, which we all know is a bit of a tease for him because ghosts can’t eat.

Where’s Waldo? He’s at Local Celebrity

by Andy on January 15, 2009


Now that I think about it, I’m pretty surprised that I’ve never seen a Where’s Waldo (or Where’s Wally to us Brits), if there was ever a subject matter that necessitated an all over tee, Waldo is surely that subject.

Local Celebrity, who are a brand I’ve covered rather more than most, have hooked up with whoever it is own’s the guy with a penchant for red and white stripes and have done what they do best, produced a line of tees featuring the guy who is perennial runner up to Osama Bin Laden in the World Hide and Seek Championships (a contest which is only open to people that can work out where the venue is).

Only two of the tees stick faithfully to the formula of “print lots of stuff everywhere and hide Waldo in it somewhere,” but the rest of the tees are pretty cool too.

Local Celebrity have a new site!

by Andy on December 13, 2008

I think I can get away with re-posting a newsletter on a weekend, right?

GOOD NEWS! Our new website is finished!! It’s been a long time in the making and it’s still not 100% the way we want it, but it feels great to have it to this point. There are still some glitches that you might notice, but we’re working hard to get them all fixed so you can cruise around the site nice and easy.

One of the coolest new things about the new site is the A-List. Basically, it’s a way for us to hook up our loyal customers with lower costs and allow them to participate in contests, parties, or anything else we decide to do. If you plan on buying anything from us in the near future, you’ll definitely want to take 2 seconds and become an A-Lister so you can save some sweet cash.

Also on the website, we’re now offering our Kid’s clothing line, called Little Celebrity! If you have a kid or know some cool parents who appreciate cool clothes, you’ll win major brownie points with them when you show them Little Celebrity.

[Just a little something to calm you down on this crazy shopping day]

I think that pretty much every e-mail I’ve received for the past few days has involved some kind of coupon or deal or percentage, and I’ve tried to cover each one in a post, but there’s just too many, so here’s a bumper sized post that has a looooad (15, to be precise) of deals in it.

1. Mimoco


2. 50% off at Digital Gravel until Monday.


3. 40% off at Local Celebrity by using the coupon code BLACKISBEAUTIFUL, valid until Sunday.


4. 50% off all tees at Beandip Clothing, no coupon needed, not sure if this one goes on all weekend, so you don’t have too long to get in on the action.


5. Even though they’re British, Urban Retro are getting into the coupon code madness, use code XMAS25 to get 25% off your order this weekend.


6. There seems to be a bit of small print to this one (as you can see at the bottom of the image), but 30% is still a good deal, especially when you can knock that off items which are already on sale. Also, WEGOBBLE is a pretty cute coupon code, well done Tobi.


7. Fred Flare are offering free shipping this weekend (which is a $7.95 value) by using the coupon code MO, sure, it’s not the biggest deal on the list, but at least you can’t complain about the shipping prices!


8. You’ll have to be quick to catch this one at Random Shirts:

Now that you’re rolling out of bed and trying to recover from that turkey coma, it’s time to do some serious shopping. Today is the day you’ve been waiting for your entire life!….buy 3 shirts…get 2 free. Go, now. You won’t regret it. Remember …every time you buy 3 shirts you get 2 for free ALL day. That means if you buy 6 you’ll get 4 free, if you buy 9 you’ll get 6 free..and so on. We are confident that you can get all your holiday shopping done for the rest of your life on this one day. Simply add all your shirts to the cart to see the discount!

12. Split Reason are offering a healthy 20% off everything by using the coupon code BLACKFRIDAY.

14. Buy two or more tees at Walkie Talkie tees and you’ll be eligible for free shipping!


16. There’s 20% off at Mediocore Clothing until Sunday, using the coupon code AWESOME, maybe you could put that saving towards the tee above that is currently on pre-order.


17. Johnny Cupcake‘s offering for Black Friday this year is a 20% coupon code (SANTA) that you can use online, or print off the coupon above and take it into any of the JC bricks & mortar stores, which is a cool addition. Valid until December 2nd.


18. This one isn’t just for Black Friday since it goes on until January 1st, but its a decent deal so I thought I’d include it. £3/$6 off each Bang Bang T-Shirts tee ain’t half bad, and remember, there’s free worldwide shipping on all orders.


19. have HYA up with a coupon code which lasts for more than the rest of the weekend, it lasts all the way to January 5th! Just use the code HYA and you’ll get 10% off your order.


20. Paper Root Clothing have got up to 50% off their shirts and also a few $5 grab bags, no fancy schmancy coupon code necessary.

21. You’ve only got 4 hours before this code goes dead. Hunty from MySoti got drunk, no, really, and he set up a coupon code for 20% off your order, it’s drunkenmadness and it will be gone soon, so if you’ve had your eye on something over there this is a good opportunity to pick it up.


22. Get 20% off at Catastrophic Clothing with the coupon code BLACKFRIDAY… obviously. *Now running through to Monday.


23. hoodie People have knocked 25% off their Upper Playground (mens here, womens here) range, I don’t know what the expiration date is on it, but the coupon code is upsalehoodies.


24. Now that is a good deal to end this post on, Glarkware have got some very, very, cheap items, and you don’t even need a coupon code!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Cocaine Blows by Local Celebrity [Review]

by Andy on November 18, 2008

This is the last of the tees that Local Celebrity sent in a rather large box, and whilst I wish that I could say that I was saving the best for last, I must admit that I’m not particularly partial to this tee. I don’t have a problem with the design, the text and the image are both fine, I just have a problem wearing a tee that has cocaine on it, even if the message on the tee is anti-drugs. I don’t wanto to preach to people even if I think that taking cocaine is a bad thing, and I’m sure that more than a few people would misinterpret the design as me actually being pro-drugs, and frankly, I’d rather just not get into that whole hornet’s nest.

Clearly, to say that I’m a fan of this design would be a bit of a lie, but I accepted long ago that HYA isn’t just about me and what I like anymore, and I have to accept that there are people out there who like this kind of thing, even if they are just rather ballsier than I am in their anti-drugs stance. The colourway is pretty neat, red, black and white always work well together, and the design is classic Local Celebrity, simple and solid, with a slightly retro feel to it.

I may not love the subject of this tee, but I am still very much in love with the quality of Local Celebrity’s t-shirts, they rank amongst the best I’ve ever worn, and as regular readers will know, that’s a lot of t-shirts! Print quality is excellent too, I’m pretty sure its a water-based ink since you can barely feel it on the tee, and I know that these tees last because the first lot they sent me are still going strong despite reasonably heavy rotation in my tee wearing.

Voltron by Local Celebrity [Review]

by Andy on November 7, 2008

Okay, this is the last of the Voltron tees that I received from Local Celebrity, considering I wasn’t a massive fan of the show when I was a kid my wardrobe certainly paints an entirely different story of events, with Voltron now commanding a 2.5% share of my tee closet (and tee rack, and tee pile-on-a-chair) space.

I’ve got to admit, this is probably my least favourite of the Voltron tees that I received. There’s nothing particularly wrong with it, but I think that it has the least interest to someone that isn’t a fan of the show since its a bit less flashier than the others. Having said that, I do like the retro look to this tee, it keeps things simple, and it does actually look pretty good when you’re wearing it. Red tees can be a bit of a struggle for some people, but I think that matching it with the yellow and white colourway works pretty well.

As you can probably tell from the relative brevity of the design review above, I’m struggling to get excited about this tee, even though I thought that looked pretty cool when I wore it on a night out. I still think that the quality of Local Celebrity’s t-shirts is something to get excited about, however. Exceptionally soft cotton, well-fitting (a little bit boxier than American Apparel), soft print, and I know for a fact that they last very well too.
