MAGNUM P.I. – Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) Custom three-piece suit



This three-piece suit was worn by the character “Thomas Magnum” portrayed by actor Tom Selleck, in the iconic hit 1980’s television series “Magnum P.I.” The light blue polyester suit was custom made for Mr. Selleck’s use in the production, and consists of a two-button jacket with flapped welt pockets (two on the right side, one on the left), matching six-button satin-back vest, and pants with rear flap pockets. The pants have been re-hemmed for use on a later production. All pieces have the original white costumer’s label sewn into the interior with “Tom Selleck” handwritten in black ink. The pants label has the additional size information “35 x 35 ˝”.

Mr. Selleck wore the suit in “The Hotel Dick” (Season 6, Episode 5). In the episode, Magnum has given up life at the estate to get a "real" job as the in-house detective at the large, plush Hawaiian Gardens Hotel. His main purpose is to catch an elusive jewel thief dubbed "the Catman of Kauai", before the upcoming International convention of jewelry designers to be held at the hotel, while trying to avoid irritating his demanding boss. Mr. Selleck wears the suit throughout the majority of the episode as he and his friends attempt to catch the thief. “The Hotel Dick” aired on October 17th, 1985. The suit is in very good screen worn condition and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house.

Magnum P.I. ran for eight seasons, from 1980 to 1988, and was consistently one of the highest rated shows on US television. Tom Selleck won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Thomas Magnum in 1984.
