So, I was minding my business looking for pictures of "hot guys" from the early 2000s when I came across this picture of Shane West at Limp Bizkit's album release party for Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water.

I found that these ribbed white tanks were especially prevalent at cellphone release parties and charity events.
