LOU: Pixar Studio Store Exclusive Tee

pixar studios LOU short film t-shirt tee

If you've been following along with me on social media (and/or if you've read my glowing soundtrack review), you may already know that I adore Pixar's latest short film, LOU (directed by Dave Mullins), which premiered last summer in front of the theatrical release of Cars 3.

To my dismay (though expected), there has been no sign of any LOU merchandise—or at least any that's available to the general public. You can imagine how excited I was when I stumbled upon this amazing shirt featuring LOU himself while shopping at the Pixar Studio Store this past fall (a surreal experience)! This is an exclusive tee that can only be purchased there at the studios in Emeryville, CA.

I've loved the design of the title character LOU ever since the director teased his [then] upcoming short with this drawing HERE back in September 2016. The way he's made up of lost and found items (not to mention how he moves around the playground) is nothing short of brilliant. Having LOU's silly and lovable grin front and center on this shirt just makes me so happy! Here it's drawn by LOU's production designer Albert Lozano. I also love the film's charming logo printed there on the sleeve as well—as seen above.

And as usual with the Studio Store shirts, "Pixar Animation Studios Emeryville, CA" is printed on the back top near the neckline. That's always such a nice touch which makes the shirt feel extra special.

I know I've mentioned this countless times, but I consider anything from the Pixar Studio Store to be the "holy grail" of Pixar collecting. This is such a rare treat! If you're lucky enough to shop there at the Studio Store anytime soon (perhaps you've been invited by a family member or friend), definitely look out for this while you're there. If you loved this film as much as me, you'll certainly want to pick this shirt up. It's soft, nicely fitted and feels quality made overall—one of my new favorite shirts for sure. I'll be wearing it a lot.

Let me know your thoughts on this tee and/or the short film itself in the comment section below!
