Bros are a type of white male between the ages of 16-24. They originated in Southern California during the early 2000s, but are now prevalent in most major cities throughout the US and Canada. They are characterized mainly by their frequent use of the word "bro" to describe other males who are actually unrelated to them, but can be noted by many other distinguishing features such as:

1. A brightly colored Abercrombie and Fitch polo (often pink) worn with the collar popped
2. A Livestrong bracelet
3. A trucker hat, worn either backwards or tilted to the side
4. A pair of gino sunglasses, most likely purchased from Armani Exchange for $39.99, and often worn indoors / in non-sunny weather
5. Being overly tanned, to the point at which it is apparent they spend several days a week at the tanning salon
6. Hair with too much gel in it
7. Working out all the time and wearing overly tight shirts to make it look like they are more jacked than they actually are
8. Frequent use of the words "chill" and "sweet"
9. Liking Family Guy better than the Simpsons
10. Listening to a combination of soft rock (Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Dave Matthews), the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and some rap.
11. Ripped jeans for formal attire and track pants for informal attire
12. The excessive use of cologne and axe body spray

There are several "bro repellants" available to the common North American young man:

1. Listening to thrash metal, grunge metal, or classic rock
2. Using words longer than six letters
3. Staying away from Laguna Beach, Malibu, or any other towns with names that are printed on Hollister shirts

Bro #2: Sweet bro, sounds chillin' bro, let's do it up bro.

A male, often in (but not restricted to) his late teens to mid twenties, whose most raw state would be what many would consider a "regular dude." On this crude foundation, bros layer an exuberant confidence because of good looks, wit, respect from other bros, success in sports (carnal pursuit being a sport), but more often than not a combination of all of these. This confidence when combined with all of the features that make a bro not "weird" or a "fag", sometimes leads to a prejudice against the lesser "weird" "fags", often vocalized in a bro's boisterous manner.

Most comfortable in social settings with limitless amounts of alcohol (hence the common association to fraternities), and an impressive coherency despite the amount of alcohol consumed. This, in combination with said confidence, has lead bros to exploit glaring insecurities in women, often by putting down and manipulating said women, which is more proof of female stupidity than any given bros demeanor.

A bro's wardrobe is perhaps the most interesting aspect of the creature, as it the most versatile of any other genre of person. There is a notable balance between every category of clothing, save emos, guidos and said "fags”. For example a flat brim(ghetto), throwback John Stockton jersey, nice shorts (preppy), and turf shoes(lax), is a staple broutfit. Not all bros necessarily have this outfit, aspects of even skater, surfer, or even casual luxury apparel withstanding, but girls will stare regardless.
You should have seen Danny's dad at the wedding; he was pounding straight Beam and hitting on all the waitresses while giving his two high school nephews beers. So we iced him and he crushed the bottle, spiked it, flipped the table and blamed the whole thing on the mexican janitor. What a Bro.

A Bro is a guy that thinks he is way cooler than he really is. A Bro can be seen in pics making a face or a pose where he is trying so hard to look like hes not trying. A Bro will call all the other guys bro even though noone likes the bro. For people unfamiliar with this term, realize it is not mainstream yet and originated from www.whitekidsfromtheburbs.com. Other people would refer to a bro as a douche bag. Bros are usually idiots so a way to have fun with them is to call them bro every few words when you are talking to them and see how long it takes them to catch on.
Look at that absolute Bro with his stunna shades on inside and his white blazer. Doesn't he know hes at a friggin house party and not VIP at a ghey bar?

a usually white trash guy that spends too much time at the gym, found in places like glamis or the river. always, drive big lifted trucks (To make up for their short comings)that in no way have ever seen any dirt, and if they ever did take them off road thaey are so tall they would fall over. Usually with some kind of crappy grafix over the front.(ie: flames) has huge iron cross sticker on the back window. Usually wearing high black socks, skater shoes. Always wearing some kind of expensive brand baseball cap that seems to have an ironed bill
"Bro, are we going to Glamis or "The River" this weekend?"
