Essentials: Magnum, P.I.

Published By

We say “Magnum P.I.,” and what’s the first thing you think of? Is it the man’s glorious mustache? Is it his iconic Hawaiian shirt? Is it surprisingly on-trend (then and now) “short shorts” or slim light-wash denim? Or maybe, just maybe, it’s a little bit of all of that — right? Style flows in cycles, trends come and go, but looking back at Magnum P.I. these days is realizing that the style of the ‘80s is back and better than ever (and maybe, in some ways, it never left). Whatever the reason, there’s never been a better time to go back in time, as it were, and adopt the retro-cool, easygoing style of the man himself. The summer months are, of course, an optimal time to adopt such a look of ease, leisure and cool, after all. 

Slip-on shoes, classic denim, a cool printed shirt, and a grab-and-go ball cap all offer a bit of that laidback swagger we all crave. What’s more, you can even get some instantly iconic shades inspired by the famed character — talk about style that jumps from the screen right into your wardrobe. Given that hanging out at home — or working from home — seems to be the norm for the foreseeable future, why not shake up your style with some classic pieces you can make all your own, ehh? When you want to turn a new page in your style playbook, look toward the past. After all, when has Magnum P.I. ever steered you wrong?
