The famous red Magnum PI Hawaiian shirt worn by Tom Selleck in the 80s version of Magnum PI is a part of American pop culture. In fact, it can be a bit difficult to see that shirt and not think of Tom Selleck. So while that shirt will be forever linked to him and that show, it is not the only place that shirt has shown up. That shirt made appearances on TV and movies over the years which has only helped to keep that shirt in the public consciousness 30 years after the original Magnum PI ended. Here are a few times that shirt was worn on the big or small screen in shows other than Magnum PI.

NCIS Season 3, Episode 5 (2005)

In this video clip, the shirt is referred to as the Holy Grail of Hawaiian shirts. This shirt basically plays itself in the show as the character knows it is the Magnum PI shirt. The shirt is found in the clip at 0:12.

 

Journey 2 – The Mysterious Island (2012)

This movie stared Dwayne Johnson, Vanessa Hudgens, Josh Huterson, Michael Cain and Luis Guzman. In this movie there is a scene where the Magnum PI shirt is worn by Luis Guzman.

 

Cougar Town

In an episode of Cougar Town, the characters go on a trip to Hawaii. In one scene, the Magnum PI shirt is worn not by one person, but three!

Magnum PI Shirt Bachelor Party

These guys didn’t appear on a TV show or movie, but they did gain some publicity in 2017 when they all wore Aloha shirts, many of which were Magnum PI shirts, to a Detroit Tigers baseball game…and got kicked out for rowdy behavior. In both the 80s and reboot version of Magnum PI, Thomas Magnum is a Detroit Tigers fan and often wears a Tigers baseball cap. 

 

Other Shows and Movies

There are a couple other instances where the Magnum PI shirt made an appearance. Adam Richman wore it on an episode of Man vs Food when they came to Honolulu. It was also worn by Taylor Kitsch in the movie Savages. And Will Ferrel wore it in an episode of Funny or Die shown below.
