MAGNUM P.I. – Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) Burgundy Hawaiian Shirt



This Hawaiian shirt was worn by the character Thomas Magnum, portrayed by actor Tom Selleck, in the iconic hit 1980’s television series “Magnum P.I.” Mr. Selleck wore the shirt in “Heal Thyself” (Season 3, Episode 12).

The muted burgundy rayon shirt is made in the classic Hawaiian style with short sleeves, button front, and a large-scale floral pattern in shades of blue and pink with green and pink trailing lines. The shirt has the original “Heidi” brand label in the interior collar.

In the episode, Karen Harmon, a doctor Magnum knew in Vietnam who was traumatized when a wounded soldier she was treating was killed in a bombing, is accused of the murder of three patients in her care. Magnum is determined to help her clear her name, but the situation triggers Karen’s delayed stress syndrome from the bombing in Vietnam. Mr. Selleck wears the shirt throughout the middle of the episode as tries to track down who leaked the story of Karen’s stay at a VA hospital. “Heal Thyself” aired on December 16th, 1982.

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.

This shirt is a prime example of Mr. Selleck’s signature look as Thomas Magnum, and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house. Presented by The Golden Closet, your premiere source for screen used wardrobe, props, and music entertainment memorabilia.
