We could make our clothing cheaper.

But then we would need to replace our premium fabrics with material that's milled and dyed overseas using toxic chemicals, utilize factories that subject their workers to unsafe working conditions and below poverty wages, and ultimately produce a product that would only last a few wears before ending up in the landfill. 

We're not interested in making cheaper clothing. It's not good for you, for the workers involved in the process, or for our planet. 

Instead, we choose to make our all of our products responsibly here in Canada, adhering to strict labour and environmental regulations using high quality fabrics and materials all while giving back to community. This results in a higher quality product that is built to last years, instead of months, all while contributing to a better community, and a better planet. 

This garment is made from our premium bamboo blend.

  • 70% Rayon from Bamboo
  • 30% Organic Cotton
  • Superior fabric for its softness and functionality
  • Pre-washed, pre-shrunk
  • Functional due to its moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial properties
  • Bamboo crop consumes far less water to grow

    The BEST yet from Local Laundry

    I have not stopped wearing my SHACKET since getting it. This is by far the BEST yet from Local Laundry. I love how soft it is, how great it looks, and how versatile this item is so you can wear it every day. I usually wear size Lg from Local Laundry but had to size up with this to an XL. You may want to consider that as well if you are wearing this more like a "jacket". Definitely add this to your closet. You won't be disappointed.

    Soft and Cozy! Size up for a slouchier fit

    Love this shacket. It's literally the same material as the sweaters, but with a bit more structure - pockets and thicker seams make for more of a jacket feel than sweater feel. I sized up to a medium for an oversize look. I'm 5'7, 140 lbs and would normally wear a small, so medium was perfect for throwing over a tshirt and straight leg denim in a slouchy way.

    Holy Shacket

    Remember that warm hug you used to get from Grandma? The smell of warm apple pie, just like Mom used to make? This shaket is just like all of that, but better. It’s soft, tailored perfectly and gives you confidence. When I say confidence, I mean the kind of confidence it would take to ask that girl out that so far out of your league you’re not even sure there’s a league for her. Love this shacket!

    Staple item

    According to my wife, I wear my 'shacket' too often. :)

    It's well fitted, as soft as the bamboo t-shirts and washes well. The length is perfect and it you can move in it - there is some give to it.

    My one caution is that it is tighter at the sleeve than I expected. The length is the sleeve is good, but a little tight for my bulging wrist muscles. ha
