After six months of living in the Middle East, I’m heading back to the States. I’m currently in Kuwait and have only 72 hours until I touch down in the US on 30AUG. At the airport, I will immediately get a private car to race me to my house. Once in Washington, DC, I’ve only got a few days to tie up some loose ends concerning bank loans and administrative paperwork with the company before I’m off to China.
My internet accessability isn’t the greatest so please be patient with my postings and email replies.
Please go to Disco Valante Online and register your email so I can notify you of the upcoming launch!
Again, please be patient if I am not posting. Thank you for your support!

I personally hate carrying a bag. All Disco Valante needs is his credit card, chap stick, car keys and phone. However, even though I don’t personally carry bags, I can appreciate them. I can understand when people live in urban environments and don’t have cars to throw their things in, a bag maybe necessary to make it through the day.
When I lived in Japan, it was not uncommon to see men carrying cool looking tote bags, commonly referred to as man bags. It was more uncommon to see men NOT carrying such an accessory.
A man bag can be a cool add-on to a killer wardrobe but, in America, we will not let go of the backpack. I cringe everytime I see a guy wearing a cool suit or nice clothing while carrying a back pack. I understand if you are doing some physical activity where a back pack maybe more appropriate for the wear and tear but not in the everyday commute of a stylish man.
If you must carry a bag throughout the day, get something cool. If you and the 6 year old kid next door have the same taste in bags, shame on you.
Am I being a total snob about this guys? Let Disco Valante know what you are thinking.
Historically, the beach is a place where sexuality has been expressed. It is a natural reaction to wearing next to nothing. Disco Valante has noticed a very telling trend on this thread. American women hate the overt sexuality of men in Speedos. But why? Are American women threated by a man’s sexual presence? Are they envious?
In America, women are the beacons of beauty and sexuality. Meanwhile, men are quickly branded as gay or weak if they appear too beautiful.
Quick Story to illustrate this point:
All military pilots have call signs, like “Maverick” in TOP GUN. My Naval Academy classmate Christian, who is a Navy pilot, is probably one of the most handsome men I have ever seen. His call sign is BROKE BACK. I asked the other pilots, “Why is Christian’s call sign BROKE BACK?”. Their reply was, “A man that good looking has to be gay.”.
American beaches are the place where the female form is the center of attention. Beautiful woman with smooth curves wearing skimpy two pieces swim suits can be the inspiration of hit TV shows…BAYWATCH. However, does a man of equal physical beauty wearing a Speedo threaten a woman’s turf?
This girl commented to me once, “I don’t go out with overly attractive or well dressed men because I want to be the center of attention when we go out.”. I’m not saying she speaks for all women but could this be a glimpse into the female mind?
Or is American just a nation of sexually prudish individuals? One could easily make this assumption based on our beach attire, our view of prostitution, and attitude toward the GBLT community.
Ladies tell us if my assumptions are way off point. Fellas, why do you think women hate men wearing Speedos?
I have NEVER owned a pair of white cotton boxers. I just don’t know what it is about them but I possible hate them on the same level as tighty whities. I’ll give it to the guy in the photo his pair look sportier (or maybe it’s just bunched up) than traditional white cotton boxers found in a department store. However, I still just can’t bring myself to buy a pair.
Disco Valante wants to know if white boxers are sexy or just plain BLAH?
I truly believe friendship is at the core of a man’s personal style. Who we hang out with and how we treat them says so much about us as an individual.
On my blog, I constantly exploit Erik and talk about our friendship. I want to talk about my other best friend Steven, aka Hazel Eyes. Hazel Eyes is also a Navy Leiutenant and an Explosive Ordanace Officer like Straight-ish boy. He’s currently stationed in Italy.
Hazel Eyes is my ace! I don’t know anyone like him. He is just a great person. He is always voluteering for different causes and I don’t think I’ve ever heard him say a negative word about anyone. A damn goody two shoes! He is a free spirit and don’t dare him to do something embarrassing because you’ll lose everytime.
Steven is who I turn to when I want talk about truly personal things and have a good man cry! Steven was actually the first person to give me money to start Disco Valante Clothing. I want to publicly thank him and let him know I love him very much.
For some reason, Steven thinks he can be a thug or a tough guy. Could someone please tell him guys with hazel eyes and that play with babies are not bad boys. By the way, that’s chewing gum foil in his mouth and a painted on beard.
You’ve just purchased a sexy, new pair of underwear from Disco Valante and can’t wait to show them off on your next booty call. But when you do finally disrobe in front of your new “friend”, they cringe in disgust at the site of your unkempt caveman pube bush.
Where have you been the last few years? The Tom Selleck (aka Magnum, PI) look is out. Nobody wants a furry wolf-man anymore. A smooth swimmer body is what’s “in”.
It can be scary to wield a sharp razor around your “one eyed warrior” but it is a necessary evil with today’s grooming standards. Use electric clippers as a substitute for a razor.
But why should you trim your pubic hair? First of all (and perhaps the best reason), trimming your pubic hair can make your erection look huge. But, of course you wouldn’t care about that. Don’t forget about hygiene. Your whole area will be cleaner, smell better, and be much more inviting. And of course, general sexiness!
The benefits of having a shaved pubic area will be apparent straight away!
Any tips or comments fellas?
Don’t forget to visit our sister company, Jock Muscle, for your private sex toy fun!!!
Disco Valante has run into a major road block. The simpliest way to describe my problem is to say the bank won’t give me money!
After fours months of early preparation and submitting my business loan application, the guy in charge of my paperwork has to decided to renege on offering start-up funds.
Does Disco Valante have good credit? – Yes.
Has the loan officer ever expressed any faults with the business plan or financial estimates? – No.
Is Disco Valante a college graduate? – Degreee in Electrical Engineering. Check.
Has Disco Valante owned another business and made a profit? – Yes.
Has the loan officer ever said everything looks good and there are no problems? – Yes.
Has the loan officer been sitting on my paperwork and not doing his job for 4 months? – Hell Yes!
It isn’t that I can’t get the money from another institution, it is just the lackidasical manner in which my application is being handled that pisses me off.
If you don’t know, I’m currently in the Middle East and two weeks away from returning to Washington, DC. I was supposed to sign my paperwork on 1AUG. I am almost certain the loan officer would have waited until I got into the bank to tell me the disapproval news…that’s the level of professionalism and courtesy I’m dealing with.
On the cusp of flying to China, I must now worry about money. I guess this is the cost of doing business!
Once agian, Disco Valante must instruct the class on the color of pink and its place in fashion. I would have thought the students in my last class would have passed on the this information to rest of society but they have failed me.
After a much heated debate in my office with a victim of bad fashion, I have one statement to make…PINK ROCKS!
Why are so many men afraid to wear pink?
A man who wears pink is a someone who is daring. A man who wears pink gets complimented. When I wear pink, I have to beat the ladies (and the occasional male admirer) off with a stick. Everytime I have seen a man wear pink his stride is more confident and his poise is more manly.
Do you have what it takes to wear pink? Do you like pink on men but are to shy to wear it yourself? Or do you think pink is strictly for little girls? Disco wants to know.
The Disco Valante Clothing Blog has accumulated 10,000 hits in 4 months!!!
I know to some blogs this number isn’t much. However, I remember when I got 2 hits or no hits a day. When I used to get 20 hits a day I was jumping for joy. Now I’m clocking over 200 hits a day. Which again, maybe be small numbers for some blogs but still I’m pretty excited.
If the number of blog hits is any indication of interested consumers in my kick ass clothing label, I’m in for a hell of ride.
Thanx everyone for visiting my blog, writing me emails, and telling your friends about me. Don’t forget to go to Disco Valante Online and register your email for the news of the fall launch.
Swimming in your underwear is not the most stylish statement I suggest you make. I can only validate swimming in your underwear under the following conditions:
1. You attend a house party where the drunken festivities move from the living room to the pool out back.
2. You are wearing Disco Valante underwear and realize there is nothing better to show off your sexiness.
3. You are built like a cover model of a fitness magazine.
Outside of these circumstances I don’t think your swim attire should consist of tighty whities. Showing off your junk at the pool in a public setting just isn’t as sexy as one would think. I think it is rather creepy.
Does your swim attire consist of the underwear you put on before you headed to the pool? Under what circumstances would you wear underwear while swimming?
My friend Cooper, the owner of GayListDaily.com, has gotten some much deserved press for his new business. Disco Valante would like to extend his congratulations on the recent enourmous jump in viewership and email registration.
The people at GayListDaily.com are avid readers on my blog and I thank them for constantly encouraging me.
It has always been important that not only do I succeed, but the people around me succeed. Way to go Cooper!
I love a great pair of jeans but I’m not sure about a great pair of underwear made out of denim. All I can think about is “going commando” in a pair of jeans and having the constant irritation of denim rubbing the family jewels raw. However, I’m confident they are treated to ensure comfort (fingers crossed).
Since Disco Valante Clothing is prepping for the fall launch, I want to know if you think you could add denim undies into your regular underwear rotation or is this just a novelty to throw in your drawer of thongs, jock straps and other special occasion man panties.
Disco Valante is gearing up for a successful launch and sustained professional importance in the fashion world and social community.
I have posted previews of our opening collection but that was some time ago. I just wanted to refresh everyone’s memory. I will re-post this entry every month to keep our creaviteness in the mind of our followers.
Don’t forget to bookmark www.discovalante.com and go there to register you email address for news of the official launch this fall!
At the core of a man’s personal style is his ability to have healthy relationships. I was just thinking about my friend and the amount of support he has given me over the years.
For those who have been reading this blog, will recognize Disco Valante’s best friend, Erik (aka “Straight”-ish boy). Erik, a US Navy military officer, is deployed in South East Asia.
He’s my sounding board for all of my entrepreneurial and life goals. We push each other to be the best. While traveling through this life it is great to have a friend brother like Erik.
If you don’t currently surround yourself with people who are positive and really want to see you do well, then you should weed those people out of your life. There are only two things any person can ever do for you…push you up or bring you down!
Negative people are poison, especially negative people who are close to you because you value their opinion no matter how wrong it is. Conversely, you should always try to be positive and not belittle other people’s work, dreams, or thoughts with your negativity.
Always wish people the best and give CONSTRUCTIVE criticism when trying to help others. Being stylish is more than just having cool clothes and nice hair cut, it’s about being a gentleman on all levels, physically and emotionally.
Getting a Chinese visa during the summer games is like pulling teeth but Disco Valante has managed to get one. China here I come!

When I think of tighty whites, I think of a 8 year old boy watching Saturday morning cartoons and eating a bowl of cereal. I can’t really understand why any fashionable man would gravitate toward them! However, I have been wrong before…I think it was in 1986.
Can this choice of ultimate plainness be sexy? Disco Valante wants to know:
1. Are there any guys out there that still wear tighty whities?
2. If so, do you try to use the dick hole feature?
Or do you think tighty whites are strictly for little boys?
I’m baaack! After spending approx 15 hours in the Dubai International Airport, my work in Kyrgyzstan is postponed. I never made it past my flight to Dubai. My flight connections were totally screw by Turkish Airlines.
Oh well, back to grind of my clothing label.
Besides building my clothing empire, I have a little job of defending freedom in all corners of the world. I will be in the country of Kyrgyzstan for a week. I’m not sure how the internet capability will be so please be patient and register you email at Disco Valante Online.
The good news is you are a day closer to rockin’ some of the coolest underwear to be sold. Thanks for visiting the blog. Tell your friends.
Please register your email at Disco Valante Online to get news about the upcoming launch this fall!
Today, I went to the Chinese Embassy to work out the travel logistics of my business trip to meet the manufacturers. Apparently, unless you have an invitation to the Summer Games, you can’t get a visa to enter China. What the #@*%? How can you exclude people from conducting business just because of track and field? Very easily, I found out. I just spent $1800 on airline tickets and hotel reservations!
Luckily, I waited for someone who knew what the hell they were talking about. Even though China is stopping all flow of persons not entering for the Olympics, I was informed I only need to get an additional invitation letter from my Chinese manufacturering company and then I will be granted a visa.
Once you go black…you never go back! But does that sentiment apply to underwear?
Black underwear is always stylish and screams sexy! However, that’s just my expert opinion.
Since Disco Valante Clothing is prepping for the fall launch, I want to know if you find black underwear classically erotic or is there more to be desired with more daring colors and designs.
