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.
I must apologize. I have so many things going on at one time. I have Jock Muscle, I am leaving the military, I am trying to find a new job, and the launch of DISCO VALANTE this month.
It has been a real journey for me getting this clothing line off the ground. Being stationed in the Middle East, production delays, money problems, production delays, and PRODUCTION DELAYS. The first run of Disco Valante underwear is now somewhere in the Pacific Ocean on a container ship from Shanghai on its way to Long Beach, California.
I had the photo shoot for DV about two Friday’s ago in New York City. I didn’t even get to enjoy the cityt. I took the train from Washington, DC to NYC, walked to the studio, and then returned back to Washington that same night. The shoot went really well. The handsome fellow above is not me but he is the face of Disco Valante. Greg is a up and coming model from New York.
My graphic designer is helping me redesign the look of the DV website now. Hopefully, we will be finished by tomorrow.
It is amazing that this blog has become so successful…I constantly get inquires for sales via email everyday. That makes me feel really good about my chances for success. Keep reading!!!
Thanx everyone for coming to my blog in anticipation of the Disco Valante clothing line launch in Decemeber (fingers crossed). The DV blog has soared with over 50,000 hits. Not bad for a guy who has never read or made a blog prior to this venture.
It has been a long road of setbacks and delays. I’m actually headed to the mail carrier office to pick up a package of samples from China. These samples are possibly the last samples I will view before I give authorization to proceed with production. (fingers crossed…again)
I know my blogging has cooled down since the summer months but with the combination of clothing line preparation, my real job (military officer), looking for another steady job until DV can support me, and a new project I’ve been working on (that I will reveal after the Thanksgiving Holiday) I’ve been a busy boy.
Thanx again and it won’t be long until you are wearing Disco Valante!
Lately, I’ve been on removing all the hair from my chest and manicuring the family “jewels”. I know I walk the fine line between meticulous metro-sexual image maintenance and pyscho-boy narcissistic behavior but until recently I had limits to how far I would go.
I was in the gym the other day and this guy walked in front of me as I sat down in front of my locker and he had this dense ass hair forest growing on his back side. With utter disgust, I immediately wondered about the fur on my onion booty. I never really have had any desire to shave my ass but now I’m thinking of adding a regular buzz cut to my backside into my regular grooming routine.
Is shaving every part of your body that makes you distinguishable as a man going overboard? Or is being a slave to what’s “in” just apart of being sexy?
This is the first poll I have created for this blog and I want to test it out. So take 2 seconds and log your vote.
In this age of super clothing labels and elaborate fashion, some things remain classic. The white T is classic. A nicely fitted white T-shirt can be just as fashionable as any “designer” creation. I was looking at the movie, SPEED, the other day and Keanu Reeves made a plain white T look very hip.
Are you a fan of plain undershirt T`s? Or, in your opinion, are they strictly for function? Disco Valante wants to know.
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!
The last week or so has been a loads of administrative work and travel. From Qatar to Kuwait to Washington, DC to California, I’ve been on the go! Yesterday, I left on the physical journey to begin Disco Valante. Just before midnight, I traveled 13 hours from LAX to Hong Kong. I am now awaiting my connecting flight to go to China to meet the manufactureres of the this label. In preparation for my trip, I’ve been reading books on Chinese etiquette and business culture for the past month. I think I’m Chinese now…not really. I hope I don’t make a fool of myself.
Shortly after the official business trip of Disco Valante, I will proceed to get lost in a 3-5 week vacation around Asia. I will visit friends and some of my favorite places. This time I will be using hostels and crashing with sexy strangers. No hotels and spas for me.
Thanx for being patient with the absence of my blogging. Wish me luck!
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 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?

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?
