Announced 7/9/2016 designed by @adriansosebee on IG .
Inspired by the movie "Breaking Away" where the characters make a shirt for the "Cutters" On Frenchmen the tourists would always ask us ‘Are you a Local"" first question every time. So I wanted to design a shirt that I could wear at work while bartending and give dignity to the great "local" scene of New Orleans. This shirt believe it or not has sparked a lot of controversy some "critics" said they felt left out like if they weren’t a local they couldn’t buy it. I also had a women buy the shirt then come back to my job and burn it in front of me(yep lit it on fire). I told her "I am still selling this" and guess what lady its still for sale even in a pandemic.
