"How to tell a guy how to dress..."

Oh, yes. Someone recently Googled the search term "how to tell a guy how to dress" and subsequently found the DressThatMan.com web site.

The Dr. Phil inside us is concerned because, what you are Googling seems to be more of a communication problem with your guy with a mere sideline of taste in fashion. If this is a new relationship, it may not be wise to "tell him how to dress" at all, and... if it is an established relationship, you've probably already told him (more than once) and he's thrown away all of the dingy underclothes by now and felt like that was a sufficient upgrade. Sorry, but because of that supreme sacrifice he doesn't hear the complaints now. Not even when replying, "yes, honey... whatever you say."

In either case - a more gentle form of coercion can then be utilized. Like secretly measuring his pants and ordering some really super tight, pimp daddy deluxe 1970's polyester flares for him yourself. Yes. With your own money. Along with a color coordinated 70's disco shirt to bring the ensemble together. Yes.

Once you place your order, a few days later the package will arrive. Set the stage for the reveal. Perhaps a home cooked meal, romantic music, then right before dessert... surprise! I've got a gift for you... and give him the package.

If he says NO, then you can say no, too. That's all the incentive he needs.

Or, so we've heard.

Disco Costumes for Halloween

Can't splash the cash on genuine disco era 70's vintage clothing?

Discount Costumes

Be aware that these , and other, cheap Disco Costumes and 70's outfits are NOT at all like the REAL 1970's deal that you'll find at DressThatMan.com - costume type clothes and other reproduction clothing is often highly exaggerated in design and cheaply mass produced.

The best of Muskegon Michigan!

Man, sometimes you take a weekend trip and you simply have to blog about it. A couple of the staff here at DressThatMan.com visited Muskegon, Michigan over the weekend and are still raving about the weekend jaunt. When you can't shut up about something... you had better document it in writing.

You HAVE to have the ultimate Bistro experience at Mia & Grace. Owned and operated by chefs Je
remy and Jamie Paquin, who adhere to the "farm to table" philosophy of serving food grown and raised locally.

Yes, I can cook and you can cook, but - Jeremy and Jamie aren't wh
at we would call cooks in the simple context of the word - without a doubt, they are world class chefs that will serve you food that will completly blow you away. Superb. Freakin' fantabulosity, baby. After eating there and meeting them, I'm seriously thinking I cannot actually cook at all.

Yes, the dining experience at Mia & Grace had such a gastronomically profound impact on us that if we were ever given the choice to take a trip back in a time machine back to the 1970's to Studio 54 disco or eat at Mia & Grace... "well, hello Jeremy and Jamie... bring it ON!"

After lunch we visited our favorite winery in Muskegon - Clay Avenue Cellars to sample the new stuff and acquire fresh fruit wines. The wines are made with Michigan grown fruit and have no added color or artificial flavorings. Simply delicious. Perfect for imbibing with friends on the Lake Michigan beachfront while watching the sunset (and for hauling several cases back home). The wine from Clay Avenue Cellars totally capped off the perfect day, even while we were still talking about the Mia & Grace experience!

We had such a phenomenal time in Muskegon we were compelled to share it. Good food and wine are meant to be shared experiences. This was one weekend for the memory bank... and the groovy people associated with it all ROCK!

We'll be back. Soon. As in very.

Men's Disco Clothes from the 70's

Whoa, man! Got a disco party to go to and nothing groovy to wear? If you're a lucky man then this suit will fit you like a glove.

Believe it or not, this genuine 1970's is UNWORN and was purchased in California back in 1975 for 75 bucks, which according to the inflation calculator makes this suit worth just under 300 bucks in today's cash. For whatever reason, the man who bought it never wore it - so it's been in storage ever since.

Check out the details on this authentic vintage 1970's polyester leisure suit here. One guy in the world is going to get incredibly lucky in this top stitched suit!

The suit is a 38 jacket with a 36" waist and 29" inseam with an additional 2" you can let out in the inseam.

1970's Vintage Jeans

Looking for 70's flares and bell bottom jeans from the disco era? Check out Dress That Man for some genuine denim fashion that is UNWORN.

1970's denim Levi's have superior fabrics in comparison to what you'll find on the racks in stores today. Those jeans are heavy duty and feel stiff until you break them in by wearing them and washing them several times, and... they wear like iron. Just ask your Dad or your Grandfather. They'll know exactly what we are talking about.

We've also got a limited number of late 60's and early 70's denim jeans. These vintage jeans also have a 14 oz heavy duty denim fabric. Plus, they are SANFORIZED meaning the fabric was specifically treated using a 1930 trademarked process to reduce shrinkage in cotton-blend fabrics to less than 1%. You can read more about the Sanforized process here.

Not all vintage jeans are created equal. One popular (made for the department store masses) from the 1970's was the "Male" brand - the fabric as well as the construction of this particular brand was made of cheaper materials and methods. Yes, there certainly are plenty of others that fall into that category of lesser quality and construction (such as many sailor type patch pocket jeans from the 70's) - but, the "Male" brand is one that stands out, as there seems to be a lot of them still out there in the vintage market.

We get a few Male brand vintage items on occasion, mainly because they were part of a large lot, but we don't actively pursue that brand any longer after receiving complaints on the quality of the construction - which we agree with!

Nothing beats the heavy duty denim in original vintage flares and bells, man!

Site Statistics 2008: DressThatMan.com

Oh, man. Speculation abounds as well as disinformation.

A website was brought to our attention recently where we were being discussed here. Which then led us to this post here - yes, one that we found rather amusing.

PayPal rotates the featured shops, and
has NEVER sent us "millions" of visitors even when we are up there in the featured space! Rest assured.

As we have disclosed on our myspace page - in 2008, we had over 1,200,000 visitors look at over 4 million pages. We should know, having total access to the server stats. Yep. We surely know, baby.

As a Vintage Clothing store for MEN only, with a major emphasis on fashion from the 70's disco era, we are quite clear
ly a specialty enterprise that is focused intensely on a niche market. One which would only be appealing to a segment of Men, women and costumers who are seriously looking specifically for original vintage clothing.

We're doing what we should be doing, man. Concentrating on funking you wild guys up. And, remaining relevant to our cause.

The fact is there are many sites out there offering speculative and erroneous information about us: Alexa, Quantcast and more. Of course, Alexa stats are driven by people who have the "Alexa to
olbar" installed, which doesn't reveal the big picture - and Quantcast... well, they'd like to sell us something and then post all of the statistics. Uh huh.

We've also noticed a recent insurgence of bullshit keyword spamming type websites with our name in them for what reason we aren't sure - other than they are desperate in trying to get hits, so they add as many "keywords"
as possible and we happen to be one of them. Yet, we haven't noticed one person arriving on our site from any of them. Hmmmm.

Having a website is much more than how many "hits" you get.

It all comes down to what you've got once they arrive.
