Disco Valante has launched! Ironically, I was asleep when it went up. Please pass it on to your friends. I would like to thank everyone and anyone who has given me any support. I would also like to thank all you who doubted my ability and vision…your small minds are what drove me to succeed.
Lastly…BUY, BUY, BUY!!!
How can a guy over the age of 12 wear tighty whities? I just don’t get the obsessions some people have with this ultra plain undergarment. I keep seeing guys at the gym wearing these waist high kiddy underpants and thinking, “WHY?”.
Let me hear it Disco Valante blog readers. “Why the fascination?”
Well the end is near my friends. Here is a status of what is happening with Disco Valante.
1. Photographer finished retouching photos.
2. Web Designer finishing up.
3. Graphic Designer is making banners for web advertisement.
I am soooo close. I am currently looking at 20 cartons of underwear that the trucking company just dropped of on my door. I want to tear the boxes open and roll around in my creation.
I have included another sample image from the photo shoot. Check out Greg showing a small piece of his booty. Tell me what you think.

Silk scarfs are sooo bad ass! I know what you are thinking, “Who in the hell wears scarfs?”.
The first person is Fred from the cartoon Scooby Doo. Fred was the alpha male pimp of the cartoon. He was always off with Daphne getting busy while Shaggy, Velma, and Scooby did all the real work. Secondly, the Marlboro Man. American cigarette pop icon, Marlboro Man, was a roughneck cowboy who could drive cattle and drink whiskey like water. And lastly, yours truly. The creator of Disco Valante and Jock Muscle and the baddest mofo you’ll ever know.
Admittedly, I do get a number of stares because most people have never seen a guy wear a silk scarf. However, the first rule about having style is you cannot look like everyone else.
I hear you laughing and saying, “Only queeny guys wear shit like that.”. NO. NO. NO. I would venture to say the more masculine you are, the better the overall atmosphere of style you exude while wearing a neck accessory like a bandana or silk scarf. Style is about having the confidence to wear unconventional items that create a sense of coolness.
So cowboy the fuck up, be a man, and tie on a silk scarf.
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?
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.
Disco Valante lets his best friend give his candid confession of being borderline gay.
“I thought a guy that is into fashion, into facials and spas was obviously `gay` and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, I soon came to the realization that I was absolutely wrong. Although I am not rushing to have apple martinis (I prefer peach mojitos) and facials after a night of clubbing at the `in` crowd bars, I realized that I am (I cannot believe I am about to say this), a closet metrosexual. At first it was somewhat of a shock but as I further delved into my soul and bathroom, I realized that I do get a haircut more than once a month and I usually ask for the latest Beckham or Zac Efron style, I buy GQ to see the latest styles, I have more cologne then necessary, I like art and theatre and I actually like shopping. I know I am definitely straight-(ish) so the conclusion is that I am obviously metrosexual. Probably not a full fledged metrosexual but clearly on my way.”
Erik is a good buddy for being apart of my blog and allowing me to make fun of him. Hard to believe but Erik isn’t a model. He’s actually an officer in the US Navy working as an Explosive Ordanance and Disposal Officer…he builds and disables bombs!
Where all my “metrosexuals” at? These men aren`t afraid to shop for clothes or spend time in the hair salon to get a cool do. Metrosexuals care about grooming: they get waxed, manicured and have a regular skin care regime. This new generation of straight boys who have a gay sense of fashion have old men, everywhere, shaking their heads in disgust.
What ever became of the “man`s man”? laments one older gentleman at Disco Valante headquarters. “Back in our day, we had war and were fighting to survive and put food on the table. Now all the boys have gone soft. Pretty soon they will be wearing makeup”! And wearing make-up they are indeed! Men`s cosmetics are already on the market and sell especially well in major cities.
Even though this may seem shocking, alot of ladies are pleased that men are finally giving a damn about how they look.
The metrosexual man is the ultimate product of modern times.
