Your Very Own Magnum P.I. Shirt

A great gift for Dad on Father's Day!

If you are reading this page, you probably know who Magnum, P.I. was but, just in case, let me give you the facts in brief. Magnum was a fictional private investigator from a CBS television show. He lived in O'ahu, Hawai'i and his show aired from 1980 to 1988.

When Magnum P.I. originally aired in prime time, it was one of the top-rated shows on television in the United States. It was a light-hearted action show with the characters a bit goofy but generally good.

Women loved Tom Selleck. Men enjoyed the show as well, perhaps in part because of the bikini clad ladies.

Of course, some men even wanted to look like Magnum.

On this page will find a bit of information about the shirt, a YouTube video of the show opening of the television program and the opportunity to click through to Amazon to actually buy the shirt for yourself or for someone you know who was a fan of Magnum, P.I. How about Dad on Father's Day? If you loved this show and and always wanted the Jungle Bird shirt, here's the perfect opportunity!

Tom Selleck As Jesse Stone

Tom Selleck has since starred as Jesse Stone in a CBS television series of movies based on the novels. The movies follow the novels closely as does Tom when he plays the character, although Selleck is much older than Stone was in the books.

The author has said that he liked the Jesse Stone movies as done by Selleck and was quoted as saying, "Tom nails the character."

If you are interested, you can read the Tom Selleck T.V. Guide 2007 interview at Tom Selleck: No Mystery Why He's Bound for Vegas to learn about Selleck's role as Jesse Stone. In the article, Selleck quotes James Garner and Ben Johnson as the actors that influenced him the most. You can order all of the Jesse Stone movies from Amazon by clicking right here.

In his interview with T.V. Guide, Tom Selleck was asked what he would do if he were asked to remove his mustache and responded that he would shave it off if the part was good and if the role required it.

      Tom Selleck is gorgeous. I also liked him when he was Mnica's boyfriend on "Friends". I've never liked Hawaiian shirts, but they looked good on him!

      Still loving this lens, Brenda, and dropping back by to say that I ordered Magnum's Hawaiian shirt and my husband absolutely loves it! It's a gorgeous shirt, very well made, and sold by a wonderful company with fast service. I'm so glad I found your lens with the shirt!

      Is he really 64??? Man, the boy is getting old, but he still looks pretty good for an old man. I can only hope I look so good at that age as long as I even make it to that age. Of course, growing up in the 80s I was a huge fan of the show. A lot had to do with the Ferrari as well.

      Wow - I can't believe the Smithsonian has the original shirt! That's great. It's been awhile since I've seen the show, but I did like it and I love Tom Selleck! Great lens... I'll have the theme music from the show running through my head all night... :)

      Oh, wow, wow, and WOW! We loved Magnum, the show, Tom Selleck, and the shirt! This is so awesome! My son, who was born during the years Magnum, P.I. was on TV, had a Hawaiian print shirt and he would put on sunglasses and dress up as Magnum. Can you imagine that, a kid under age 4? (Who were his parents, anyway??) I’d love to get one of these shirts for both him and my husband. I might just have to do that. I’m so glad you made this lens!

      Oh be still my heart! I was in love with Tom Selleck before he was Magnum - he was the Marlboro Man and he looked so sexy on those huge billboards! I never missed Magnum P.I. and I have purchased this shirt for my hubby. He wears it proudly and I tell him how handsome he is every time he wears it.
