Filmspired: Magnum P.I.
“Television-spired?” It doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, but we can’t commemorate Movember without anything but an homage to the small screen’s greatest ‘stache. Whether he’s island hopping by helicopter or cruising through the streets of Oahu in a Ferrari 308 GTS, Magnum P.I.’s style has gone down in the books of fashion history. Those crisp lines and vivid hues – what would ‘80s menswear be without Tom Selleck?
You, too, can say aloha to fighting crime with a pair of leather boat shoes. They’re the classic match for slim cut jeans, and go perfectly with any Hawaiian shirt – the more colourful, the better.
Or, class up the island casual look in a pair of cognac lace-ups and hit the beach.
One of Magnum’s prized possessions was his father’s Rolex. Get the look with a bold timepiece of your own, and make sure you never miss a helicopter ride again.
Ah, the future’s so bright. You’d better fix your eyes on this prize: some Selleck-style shades, just the thing for a Sunday drive past the palm trees.
And if you’re not bound for a tropical island this winter, some rugged lace-up boots will suit to keep the cold at bay, and an endless summer on your mind.
