WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WTHR) — Purdue University is offering "Stranger Things" fans a chance to buy the retro shirt shown on the hit Netflix show.

The shirt is a light blue, ‘80s style, short-sleeve with the Purdue Pete logo on the left sleeve and "Purdue" in gold across the chest.

After being shown on "Stranger Things," there was a strong social media push to make the shirt available.

A statement from Purdue University explains what it took to make it possible:

"Since the airing of the show, the Purdue Trademarks and Licensing department has been working with CLC and Purdue licensee, Venley, to replicate the unique product that bears the vintage Purdue Pete logo on the left sleeve and Purdue in gold across the chest."

The shirt will be carried at the Purdue Team Store locations in the Purdue Memorial Union and Ross-Ade Stadium, as well as additional area retailers, including online at purdueteamstore.com.

Fans can pre-order the shirt beginning Wednesday, Sept. 18 at noon via http://bit.ly/2LY4CEN, with placement at campus retail locations by Sept. 28.
