This is a picture of a size 28XL Hawaiian shirt hanging above the factory floor of a local manufacturer. Everything on the shirt is big as you can see compared to a standard size L shirt. The label is the size of a small box of candy and the buttons are the size of quarters. So who orders a shirt like this? Well, usually the ones that order one need it as a display for a trade show or some other exhibit. Some business customers have ordered the relatively smaller and more manageable 12XL size shirt to hang inside their retail shop. And still others have ordered it as symbolic corporate gifts or government-to-government exchanges. Since demand is so low for a specialty item like this, these shirts are not cut and manufacturers like the regular shirts. They are cut and sewn by hand, old-school style!
In the Magnum PI reboot, Magnum wears Hawaiian shirts that are based on designs that are 60-80 years old. Here are the shirts that we carry (or carried) worn by the new Magnum PI so far.
