Lads can often be distinguished by the clothing they wear, stereotypically polo t-shirts, football shorts or tracksuit pants, caps tilted upwards and sports joggers. Some designer clothing and brand names, however, can be seen. Language and accents used by Lads are often used as distinguishing tools. Often accents are of Turkish, Lebanese ethnicity and words such as "eshays", "Braz" and "cuz" are frequently used.
Lads travel in packs, numbering 5 or more generally skinny 14- 26 year olds. They have pack mentality and are generally spineless. They will never combat a target if they number less than 3. Lads will often verbally provoke targets in areas such as train stations, shopping centers and trains. Provocative behavior is also used only when there is safety in numbers.
My personal opinion is that Lads are the scum of the earth and a pest. I provoke lads just to start fights and teach them a lesson. Spineless pricks never fight one on one but that just makes it more interesting.
target: "Try it mate, guarantee I'll break your face."
Lad: " Braz what you think of that slut cross there?"
Lad2: " Banging body, eshays bro, face is dog but."
- Binning Pints
- Exposing genitalia and getting naked in public places
- Throwing up after copious alcohol consumption
- Spousal Abuse
- Getting kicked out of pubs/nightclubs for being overly offensive
Excelling in all areas will earn a lad the title of "top lad". There is no higher praise that can be bequeathed upon an individual.
"Andy got kicked out of City for binning his pint, then turtling naked on the dancefloor...LAD"
They can be spotted by their white caps (usually of polo brand) tilted up showing the front of their hair. Also they wear shorts (also of polo or nautica brand) no matter what season it is, they wear them even when it is snowing, they also wear polo or nautica shirts, with the collar popped up and lastly they wear sports shoes, in most cases nike TN's.
Lads also have really small bags?
