Over the last year or so skinny jeans have become very fashionable in the US. I must admit I originally didn’t like the look. However, I am a skinny jeans fanatic. Because I work out, I love the way my legs show off in them.
Wearing skinny jeans can be difficult if
1. You have an onion booty.
2. You have super huge quads.
If these are your problems, I would only try on skinny jeans that are partly made with spandex.
I know there are loads of people that say skinny jeans don’t look good on guys. I definitely think you can go overboard with the tightness such as the following pic.
There is a fine line. Here are some signs to help you gauge if your jeans are too tight.
1. Your balls ache
2. You have problems sitting or bending your legs.
3. The buttons are going to rip off if you squat on the floor.
4. Your butt or package looks smashed.
5. You need assistance putting them on and taking them off.
6. People can see the veins in your dick.
What is your take on men wearing skinny jeans? If you have some pics of yourself rocking out skinny jeans, send them to us and we’ll post them in support of this topic.
In the last 15 – 20 years, hip hop stars have made exposing your underwear a common and cool trend in America. Sagging pants began in American prisons, where oversized uniforms were issued without belts to prevent suicide and their use as weapons. The style spread through rappers and music videos from the ghetto to the suburbs. Now, everyone does it. This infectious style of pants wear and underwear exposure is displayed by twink skater guys, trendy streetwear fellas, pastel colored polo wearing suburban kids and even Japanese school boys.
Is it ok to show a bit of underwear or is it vulgar? I would be truly excited if I wear walking down the street or in a club and I saw some guy exposing his Disco Valante underwear to see…but I have a personal and professional interest in free publicity.
Some conservative American communities have gone as far as rewarding fines to guys who expose their underwear.
Is there something arousing in seeing a hint of waistband and fabric rising atop a guy’s jeans and exposing a closer look at his onion booty?
Or has this fashion statement outlived it’s time and should guys return to non-low waist trousers that give aid to such underwear exposure? Or does it really depend on how hot the guy is if it is acceptable?
I will be back in full force during the middle of the week. I’m so sorry for the delayed absence.
I hope you guys haven’t forgotten about me!
I must admit I wasn’t always a fan of this look. I always see it in Ralph Lauren stores and I think it looks too fake and snobby. However, I think it can be worn with classic coolness and style. Take a look at this guy in the photo. His look is very understated…simple T, khakis, dark blazer, and a pair of patent leather loafers. However, he exudes a coolness that rarely seen in reality.
Disco Valante wants you to try to pull this look off and tell us how you fair on the streets. I’m sure you’ll get complimented!
I’m back!!! Disco Valante has been out of the US for almost a year and I’ve notice something quite different. In the last four days I seen eight different guys where jockstraps as underwear.
Disco Valante hasn’t been hanging out in gay bath houses. I was at two different gyms. The guys were putting on their jocks with their street clothes after their workout.
Have I, the knower of all that is cool, missed a shift in underwear appareal in my abscence?
Fellas let me know what’s up!
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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
I was just reading Cameron‘s (aka Tuffie) Blog, Tuffie’s Rants and Raves. He had this wonderful discussion about t-shirts.
For about a year now, deep V-neck T-shirts have been all the rage in the US. Some hate them, when they should be LOVED! Only to state the obvious, deep V-necks look better when you have a clean shaven, manly chest. I guess that’s why I rock them.
Being a fan of the deep V-necks, I plan on incorporating them into my opening collection. However, Disco Valante wants to get a pulse of what the people actually want. Do you think deep V-necks are cool? And why or why not?
As I am writing this post, some guy is sitting at his computer wearing a pair of underwear he has had for the last 7 years. The elastic in the waistband has lost it’s elasticity, the color is so faded it looks like acid wash, and I’m sure there are probably a few holes.
Wearing beat up, torn underwear is just ugly. Even if they are clean, they still look dirty. A man should always renew his underwear collection and discard of older pairs. I know what some of you are saying, “Nobody sees them but me!”. That, my friend, is the wrong attitude.
I recommend an underwear self life of no longer than 18 months. However, some materials hold better than others but styles and designs are always changing. Not only should your outer wardrobe be updated but so should your man panties.
Don’t worry you’ll be able to update your underwear collection with Disco Valante soon enough!
Fashion isn’t just about what you wear however, but how you wear it! You could take the exact same clothing and put it on two different men and it could look completely different. No matter what type of clothing it is, the fashions will look better on a man that is in shape than on a man that it is out of shape.
Taking care of your body is simply a matter of making a few minor changes to your lifestyle such as diet and exercise. Working out a few hours at the gym every week won’t kill you and you will definitely see a difference in your body. You’ll feel better about your body, be more confident and, therefore, look better in whatever you choose to wear.
With that being said, when developing your own personal style the most important thing to remember is to stay true to yourself. Just because a men’s fashion trend looked great on your favorite actor doesn’t necessarily mean it’s for you. If you’re uncomfortable in it, chances are it isn’t the style for you.
There are enough styles of men’s clothing out there that everyone should be able to find their own personal style. Developing your own style should always be fun. When you discover what style works for you, you’ll see that striving to look your best isn’t work at all; it just comes naturally.
I love buying new underwear but I never really understood the male thong. I understand woman wear them to hide panty lines. But why should a man wear one?
I totally get the erotic nature of seeing a piece of cloth disappear between two luscious mounds of onion booty but do men really wear these or is this just a novelty? Having never tried one, I just imagine it being super uncomfortable with a string up your ass all day.
Disco Valante wants to know if you think thongs are a great addition to your underwear collection or just costumes for male strippers shaking their money maker?
It’s the short shorts, fellas; the short shorts! Think of the 70s and the early 80s. And in 2008, fashion itself would prove that trend has a cycle—it starts and it ends and it goes back again decades after. I know, I know most guys don’t like to show alot of skin. For all you fashion forward thinking guys out there, short shorts is what’s in.
To pull of this daring look you need two things. Toned legs and attitude! Having toned legs with nice quadriceps and an onion booty adds to the visual delight onlookers will get when you are walking. Just as a woman with very curvy legs gets attention, a man with toned masculine legs will equally attract positive stares. Lastly and most importantly, having the confident attitude is a must! You are definitely going to get your fair share of looks and if you don’t have the self esteem to rock this look you might as well stay home. I just bought a pair of short shorts with a matching blazer and everyone (guys and girls) was complimenting yours truly, Disco, on his daring wardrobe selection.
One added bonus for all those vertically challenged guys out there is that wearing shorts can lengthen your frame, giving the illusion of looking taller.
If you have a problem tracking down some really nice short shorts, the same effect can be had if you buy a similar cut short or nice pair of pants and have a tailor alter the fabric to the desired length. Also, don’t mess this look up with big clunky American styled shoes. Wear this look with a nice low profile shoe, loafer, or sandal.
I usually don’t buy white underwear. I like more charisma in my undergarments. Perhaps all those years as a kid and wearing Fruit of the Loom has turned me off the white colored underwear.
Since Disco Valante Clothing is prepping for the fall launch, I want to know if you find white underwear simple yet sexy or just plain BLAH.

Thriller and Billie Jean ruled the airwaves. Knight Rider and the A-Team dominated television ratings. Rubik’s Cube, Pong and Pac-Man were the games to have. Bring back the 80′s!
Disco Valante loves that 80′s fashion has crept back into main stream. However, clothes in the 80′s had a tendency to hurt your eyes. In more ways than one. One such trend was neon colored clothes. Neon colors are cool but people in the 80′s failed in one aspect of fashion…wearing too damn much of it.
To pull off neon today, don’t over do it! Neon can best accentuate an outfit when displayed in the accessories. Set off a great outfit with a pair of neon colored patent leather kicks (shoes). Or a white T that has neon colored graphic designs paired with a pair of dark denim and a cool white belt. Even a pair of fun and sexy neon colored men’s underwear from your favorite designer Disco Valante can bring excitement to your birthday suit! Like everything else, success is in the details.
Fashion is suppose to be fun and wearable.
I’ve been getting lots of feedback from my blog entry on wearing white jeans. And yes, finding white jeans in America is hard if you don’t live in major urban cities with good shopping. For those who find it hard to get white jeans in the States, go online and start Googlin’. Nobody said looking good was easy.
For those of us who are fashion inspirations to everyone and are rockin’ white jeans, let me tell you how to take care of them so they don’t turn YELLOW!
Here are some cleaning suggestions
• Keep your white denim fresh by soaking your jeans for an hour or even overnight with detergent and bleach.
• White jeans should NOT be washed on the delicate cycle.
• Avoid hot dryers! Your jeans could turn yellow from the heat.
Hopefully these tips will keep your jeans looking good if you hadn’t already messed them up.
What Is Style?
Style is a vibe, a look, or feel a person exudes, almost like an invisible force. Style usually caries a positive conotation, however, style can also be bad. Is someone debonair, bohemian or street trendy? Or are they messy, ghetto or flashy? When someone says I like your style, it usually refers to a person`s actions and demeanor, not just to a person`s clothes.
So, how does one get style? If you are tall, fit, with a bubble butt and bulges in the all the right places, and sportin’ a supermodel face you can probably make a potato sack look good. However, I have seen some physically beautiful people with zero style. Good looks only take you so far, unfortunately it’s usually to the top…LOL! However, most of the general public usually needs help looking stylish. Contrary to popular belief, style is not just about having the “it” leather jacket, following the latest trends or wearing brand name clothes (though sometimes it helps!). Real style is an innate sense of knowing what works for you. Are you artsy? Are you a business executive, a party animal, or a sporty, gym rat type? Do you usually dine out at fancy restaurants and attend swanky charity events or do you like to go out clubbing? It’s all about do you have the confidence it takes to pull off a certain look, having command presence when you walk into a room, and ultimately being who you want to be.
