T-world 7: The New York issue

T-world: The World's Only Journal of T-Shirt Culture

One summer morning in 1958, a photographer working for Esquire magazine named Art Kane gathered together a vast group of jazz musicians on the street in New York’s Harlem for a photograph that would be published in the magazine’s January 1959 issue.

From Count Basie to Thelonious Monk to Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins and Gene Krupa over 57 musicians in total were represented in a photograph that would become emblematic of the golden age of jazz and go on to inspire the 1994 documentary A Great Day in Harlem.

Leafing through the pages of the brand new New York edition of T-world: The Journal of T-shirt Culture, it struck me that this new issue of the world’s only T-shirt journal sets out to do something equally ambitious and era-defining.

Across 196 lavishly designed pages, the gang at T-world seek to capture the essence of NYC streetwear circa-2011… visiting the people behind labels like Alife, Married to the Mob, Milkcrate, ONLY, the omniscient LA-based Hundreds (and their newly opened NYC store) as well as taking in pioneers like Ricky Powell (immortalised in an early Beastie Boys lyric, not suitable for a family friendly blog such as ours) and Milton Glaser (yes, the designer behind the ‘I Heart NY’ logo).

It’s like your streetwear crazy best friend went to New York, interviewed all the key players, took a bunch of amazing photos and truly surveyed the whole scene and wrapped it up in a lavishly hardbound book format magazine… just for you!

Still just $20 (plus postage for online orders, of course).. this is an absolute beauty and truly something special. Available online and in-store now.

  1. This looks sick! For that price I think it would be criminal not to pick up a copy!

    Hello, I have tried different avenues to reach out to you all at Mag Nation but have gotten no response as of yet. I ordered my Issue of T-World 7 over 4 weeks ago and still have not gotten my copy or even heard of any tracking information on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
