Here's a pretty basic one. it is knit in the round, it's the yarn making the stripes so just use a solid color. There is about an inch of ribbing, but that does help with stretch.
If he really doesn't want any ribbing, just start knitting w/out ribbing. Of course, if you just use stockinette, the bottom edge will roll, which I think is quite nice looking, but in my opinion kind of feminine so he may not like that afterall.
