When you think of Magnum PI, you probably think of Tom Selleck in his classic red Aloha shirt. That Magnum PI shirt is actually in the Smithsonian. Not bad!

But as famous as that shirt is, it wasn't the only shirt made popular by the show. Here are three more "Magnum PI" shirts. 

First is the black "Star Orchid" shirt featuring white orchids on a black background. In the video at the bottom of this blog post, you can see Thomas Magnum wearing this shirt and ducking behind a wall after Higgins fires a cannon.

The other one is the purple Calla Lily shirt. Man, the 80s sure had some tight jeans and some open buttoned shirts!

The third shirt is what we call Midnight Bamboo. It's hard to tell from the screen shot whether Magnum is wearing the black or navy version of this shirt as he knocks down a cold bottle of Coors. But no matter since we have both versions of the shirt.

All three of these shirts are available now so if you're a fan of Magnum PI or need a costume idea, check these shirts out and the women's shirts and dresses in our Magnum PI Collection. And while we're on the subject, we still think the Magnum PI opening credits is one of the best of all time! (We also like the original Hawaii Five-0 credits).
