In Australia, it is used to describe teenagers who wear a nautica, polo or nike white hat, tilted upright revealing the front of their hair with the strap at the back done up tight so it is dangling out the back, a striped polo or nautica shirt with the collar popped and either saucony or nautica trackies or shorts, topped off with nike Tnz which are fresh. Whom travel in packs and harass passers-by.
In Britain it is used to describe a Male younger than 30. However in modern British culture the word generally describes young individuals who are respected by their peers and often if they participate in behaviour that would benefit the group of friends.
"Jay bought us all a beer yesterday, what a lad"
- 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?
