GIFT IDEAS FOR MEN
Magnum PI Red Hawaiian Shirt - If there is one shirt that people are likely to recognize when you go out, it is this red Jungle Bird shirt by Paradise Found. Although it is just one of the many Aloha shirts that Tom Selleck wore on the show, this is the shirt that is associated with his character. This awesome shirt also comes in black.
Ohia Navy Men's Shirt - The Ohia collection of men's and women's outfits has been extremely popular since their introduction in the summer of 2022. This navy version is particularly striking in an understated way.
Tropic Fever Purple Men's Shirt - This purple cotton shirt by Pacific Legend is always a fan favorite due to its pleasant design. We also find that most of the purple shirts we offer tend to be popular, perhaps because there aren't many purple shirts out there. But whatever the reason, this shirt makes an excellent gift.
Star Orchid Navy Men's Shirt - This is the navy version of the black shirt that has been popular since the 1980s. Did you know that this print was released around 14 different colors between the 1980s and early 2000s? For the past decade or so, it's only been available in black. We are hearing rumors of another color coming in 2023 so we're looking forward to that!
Hula Hut Retro Shirt - If you're looking for a shirt with a retro design from the 50s and 60s, check out this Hula Hut shirt by Avanti Designs. We love the old-school artwork that's a throwback to a different era.
Heliconia Paradise Cream Men's Shirt - The Heliconia Paradise collection by Paradise Found came out in mid-2022 and is available in cream, black, and red men's and women's styles. We love how the red Bird of Paradise flowers pop on the cream background.
White Hibiscus Panel Men's Shirt - Some shirts stand the test of time and this White Hibiscus Panel men's shirt in red has done exactly that. We have seen similar prints from other brands over the years but none have had the staying power as this one. The vertical nature of this print give it a flattering and slimming quality that many people appreciate. It is also available in an all-white version that is popular for weddings.
Calla Lily Purple Men's Shirt - We love the slightly retro vibe of this handsome purple shirt. This shirt was worn by both Tom Selleck and Jay Hernandez in their respective Magnum PI shows. And back in the 1980s, Tom Selleck reportedly picked out this shirt from the old Paradise Found showroom in downtown Honolulu. This shirt also comes in black.
Beer Blast Men's Shirt - Chances are you know someone who not only likes beer, but LOVES it! And this shirt is for those people. This Beer Blast shirt by Pacific Legend also comes in navy.
White Ginger Khaki Men's Shirt - This handsome Aloha shirt is a great gift for someone who strives to be both tropical and understated at the same time. This versatile shirt can be worn to the office (some offices anyway) or out on vacation. It also comes in a peri blue, jade green, and red shirts and dresses.
