Monsters University Gear Is Top Notch

By now, you've probably seen the highly entertaining and detailed Monsters University, university website (where you can learn all about the prestigious university). Among all the detailed information and campus maps, there is also a campus store that is stocked with T-shirts, sweatshirts/hoodies, a hat, mug, travel mug and even a pennant to help you spread your Monsters University spirit.

Of course, we couldn't resist this merchandise and had to get our hands on it as soon as possible. We ordered up a fair amount of items and couldn't wait to check the color, cut and clarity...oh wait...we were just excited to "check it out"! Here are our thoughts on a few of the pieces available for sale in the University store.


The Hat:
I wanted to start with the hat because I absolutely love it. I find that I can't wear most standard hats because they just look too big (too tall on top), but this one fits quite well and the detailing of the "MU" patch on the front is just great. The only thing that could make this hat better would be if it were a fitted hat (this has a standard velcro adjustment), but I won't fault it for that because I understand that would be a nightmare to stock the size ranges of Pixar fans (from adults to kids). The blue is vibrant but not so vibrant that it's shouting, "hey look at me" - it's a nice tone.

The Sweatshirt/Hoodie:
We bought the black pullover hoodie and I must say that the eyeball and the blue color of the "M" really pop off the black of the sweatshirt. The fit was perfect while wearing another tee shirt underneath  - not too tight and not too baggy (after a wash and dry).

The Mens & Women's T-Shirt:
The T-Shirts are another great blend of color and style. The shirts are a similar tone of blue to the hat, but are toned down a little more because of their slight heathered fabrics. Overall I like the Women's version of the "T" a bit more than the Men's for two reasons. First, because the Women's is made from a softer jersey-style 100% cotton and the Men's is a bit more of a standard 100% cotton feel. Second, because the cut of the Women's shirt is more tapered than the Men's version - for myself, I am a trim gentleman and I prefer a more tailored shirt than the standard boxy cut. That being said, I don't find the size to be excessively large, it's just a straight boxy cut where it's the same width from under the armpits down to the bottom. All-in-all though, we love them and have already received some compliments wearing them out and we love the distressed look.

The Mug:
The mug is a great compliment to the Finding Nemo seagulls and Lightning McQueen mugs we already have. The mug is a great size - it's not an oversized mug from a width standpoint, but it is slightly taller than a standard mug. I actually prefer this size of this mug over any other size because the "jumbo" mugs hold way more than I'd ever drink and the standard mug size always makes me think I'm going to slosh some hot tea on my lap. That's a long way of saying that I love the mug. The "MU" logo is only on the one side of the mug and is a slightly deeper blue than the hats and shirts. The inside of the mug is also a deeper blue color and actually has a very, very slight purple cast to it. My opinion - you can't go wrong with the mug.

Make sure to check out the Campus Store for more merchandise and if you've bought any of the products, take a moment and let our other readers know what you think of them in the comments below - are there other products that you'd also like to see made to help fill your Monsters University hunger?
