Like a bolt from the blue, the concept for ironic tee shirt brand Local Celebrity descended upon the company’s founders while they were at (where else?) a music festival. Inspired by the communal coolness, they decided to quit their day jobs, move to San Diego on a wing and a prayer, and pin all their hopes on a humble dream of cool graphics and funny text. No longer so humble, Local Celebrity has become the de rigueur gear of celebrities and hipsters alike. Often imitated but never duplicated, all of Local Celebrity’s products are cut and sewn from ultra-premium fabrics, then designed and printed all in their new LA digs. “Where can I buy a Local Celebrity shirt?” you might ask? At any of these fine retailers, of course.
While there are several online and brick-and-mortar sources for Local Celebrity shirts, perhaps the best place to get the latest and greatest is from the designers themselves. Visit LocalCelebrity.com/shop to view all the newest styles, some of which you won’t find for sale anywhere else. While you’re there, visit their blog to find out what’s new and happening at Local Celebrity, as well as what non-local celebrities have been spotted sporting their gear.

As its name implies, PacSun (short for Pacific Sun) began life at the dawn of the iconic 1980’s as a little surf shop in Newport Beach. It has become a major brand because of its unwavering commitment to youth culture and fashion. And if there’s youth culture involved, a Local Celebrity tee shirt can’t be far behind. Check out their website, PacSun.com, for Local Celebrity online exclusives.
