Off the Hanger: Magnum P.I.

The fashion industry’s newfound love for all things Hawaiian shirts got me thinking about the master of that genre, Magnum. I also found this site that is basically the Magnum style bible. Sure, there were some definite styling faux pas in the series but overall the character had great classic looks. Rugbys, 501s, Outdoorsman specs, and of course a heavy infusion of military pieces. Go ahead and embrace your Ferrari driving inner private eye.

Shirt – Westward beach shirt
Shirt – L.L.Bean cotton poplin field shirt
Belt – Military web belt
Buckle – Navy surface warfare
Bracelet – POW MIA memorial bracelet
Wallet – Scuba diver flag wallet
Shades – Ray Ban Cats 5000 (he wore everything from Outdoorsman to Vuarnet to Julbo)
Jeans – 501 shrink to fit light blue
Hat – Da Nang
Shoes – Sperry 75th anniversary (the white is probably more apt)
Watch – Seiko men’s diver (more accurate would be a Rolex, but same general styling)

    What about the Detroit Tigers baseball hat ? That hat really can make or break the ensemble.
