Let us rejoice for the long wait is over. The Magnum PI Shirts Are Upon Us!
Brother’s and Sisters I say to you tonight, The time is now! Let us rejoice, for the Magnum PI ‘Jungle Bird’ shirts have finally been bestowed upon us once more, and even better…. they’re on SALE! Available in both red & black the ‘Jungle Bird’ shirt (in case you didn’t already know) is the ultimate iconic Hawaiian shirt. A 1980’s vintage throwback that some some claim to be the Holy Grail of Aloha Garments. For eight long seasons Magnum wore this shirt putting up with Higgins and those stupid dogs, Zeus & Apollo. Fighting crime in the seedy underbelly of 1980’s Honolulu, Hawaii. Our hero Thomas Magnum showed us that not only could this tough as nails ex-Navy Seal help make a better, kinder, gentler Hawaii, but against everyone advice he was going to do it with his Aloha shirt tucked into his way too tight jeans.
There’s not much else I can say about this shirt. It is the shirt that started it all. If you can only buy one Magnum PI Shirt. This is definitely the one to get!
Did you know the famous red jungle bird Magnum PI Shirt also comes in Black? Magnum would wear this one more in the evenings perhaps when on a covert mission so as not to draw attention to himself.
From December 11th 1980 to May 1st 1988 he was the reason we stayed home once a week and tuned into his Hawaiian crime fighting adventures. He was Americas answer to James Bond. He was the man I hoped to be when I grew up. All the ladies wanted him and all the men wanted to be him. Like Bond, Magnum also drove himself around in style. His style was a awesome red Ferrari. But unlike Bond and his tuxedos, Magnum chose a more laid back look. After all he’d look pretty silly fighting crime in Hawaii wearing a tuxedo. They say the clothes make the man and if that is true than the clothes that made Magnum are his Hawaiian Shirts. Most of all the red ‘Jungle Bird’ Magnum PI Shirt.
Did you know that The ‘Red Jungle Bird” shirt has even been inducted into the Smithsonian Museum? It is the most recognizable Hawaiian shirt ever! A iconic Hawaiian shirt worn by the coolest 1980’s icon. In my book that makes the Magnum PI Shirt the coolest Hawaiian shirt of all time!
Although most people don’t talk as much about this shirt, the ‘Star Orchid’ Magnum PI Shirt was actually Toms favorite and was worn through much of the first episode, season one as well as much of the series. He even wore it on the cover of TV Guide.
The Magnum PI Shirt Collection is comprised of 3 shirts all hand picked by Tom Selleck himself for his character Magnum to wear throughout the 8 year series. And the coolest thing about these shirts are that they are originals. These Magnum PI shirts are still made by the original company that produced them for him back in the 1980’s. In other words, these are not cheap knock off look a-likes. These are the real deal.
After you pick up a couple shirts all that’s left to release your inner Magnum is to obtain residence at Master Robin’s Estate and a red Ferrari. Good luck!
