For most men, the plain white T-shirt is both an essential and an afterthought. The vast majority of American menperhaps you includedbuy plain white T-shirts in packs of three or six, use them exclusively as undershirts, and don’t think a whole lot about them until it’s to buy another pack. But if you don’t take your white T-shirt seriously, you are getting severely sartorially hosed.
Ever since Marlon Brando first stepped out sporting one 63 years ago in A Streetcar Named Desire they’ve been a symbol of counter-culture/working class sexuality. Pair it with blue jeans, skinny black jeans, a comfortable pair of khakis, a leather jacket, whatever you want. Did I mention women absolutely love them? This is one of those high-use goes-with-everything items that men need a constant supply of.
Thankfully, a California company called Jungmaven makes a white T-shirt that fills the holy trifecta of a good T-shirt. It’s insanely comfortable (due to the special cotton/hemp blend), ridiculously affordable (just $10), and very, very well cut. I, for one, swear by these T-shirts, which also come in a variety of other colors and styles (often around $29). Jungmaven also make an impeccable line of items including long sleeve shirts and sweatshirts. But the $10 plain white one is the one I own four of.
You may want to order a size down from what you usually wear due to the fact that shirt stretches out slightly to fit you just so, and after a few hours of wear it’ll look like you’ve owned it for a year… in a sexy “I just threw this on” way, of course.

Signed to Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang Records, LA-born Ty Dolla $ign is a multi-talented rapper, singer and producer who is making his way onto the scene with the release of his mixtape, Beach House. His latest track, “Never Be the Same,” gives a good idea of what else is to come from from the musician, with a vocal style that follows in the same vein as prolific R&B star The-Dream. The stark black and white video not only features fellow LA-rapper Jay Rock – not to be confused with J Rocc – but also an old guy who could very well be Ty Dolla $ign’s own father, in a stunt similar to Drake’s in his video for “Worst Behavior.”
The Official Music Video for Ty Dolla $ign’s “Never Be the Same” feat. Jay Rock is a post by Maude Churchill on Highsnobiety.

A very special mixtape for you this week from young whippersnapping band, Big Ups. The band, formed in 2010, is made up of Brendan Finn, Joe Galarraga, Amar Lal, and Carlos Salguero Jr. They’ve been signed to Tough Love records and their “blend punk, post-punk, metal, and indie rock” songs channel worldly topics such as science and mood swings. This mixtape is one of the best we’ve had so far, and is the perfect accompaniment to your grizzly Friday afternoon. Especially if you like Weezer or spent your youth playing guitar in your garage with (or without) your friends.

See images of the first moonwalk, the first earthrise seen from human eyes, and the first shuttle launch from Kennedy Space Center, all showcased in a glorious new exhibition.
As exciting as the future of space travel may be, its past is just as thrilling. For All Mankind: Vintage NASA Photographs 1964-1983, a new exhibition at London art gallery Breese Little, showcases more than 100 photographs from the golden age of space exploration. The photographs depict NASA from babyhood (Eisenhower established NASA in 1958) to adolescence, picturing the first spacewalk by a United States astronaut (Edmund White in 1965), the first earthrise witnessed by human eyes (1968), the first walk on the moon (1969), the first-ever shuttle launch at Kennedy Space Center (1981), and the first rendezvous of two spacecraft in space (even rockets get lonely).
