BroSpotting Resource



This blog/site is one I found while perusing the internet. It's an extensive resource for identifying Bro's and their ilk.

"...we all know a bro when we see one. But bros don't seem to recognize themself. It may be that they have bro-blindness, akin to the inability to look up one's own nostrils without the aid of a mirror."

Definately worth a read! Categories range from Bro's music of choice, Bro's vehicles of choice, Bro's habits, Bro's idols, Bro's vernacular, etc. While some are more spot on than others, the list provides great insight into the Bro-ness of this sub-culture. It seems to fuzzily cover Bro's in a rather broad sense, touching on the Classic Bro, the Redneck Bro, the Jersey Bro, the California Bro, the RocknRoll Bro, the Frat Bro, the Sports Bro, and others. But effective nonetheless. The only thing I didn't notice was a mention of the ultimate 'popped collar', the most infamous staple in Bro fashion. Also, I thought it a bit humorous that someone commented that 'almost all Australians fit this description' (not verbatim). Click Below!

Go Back To California

Josies, yes. How could we have forgotten Josies..? Spend 5 minutes clicking around myspace and you will find an abundance. For a wonderful description of Josies, go one post down.





EVEN JOSIES POP THEIR COLLARS!




Enter The Josies

Now that Bro Spotting is beginning to pick up speed, I think that it's time to introduce Josies in to the mix. These are Josies...

Josies

Josies are the preferred company of Bros. Often blond, ditzy, and drunk, a Josie is always ready to hit club and drink as many Malibu-cran's they can stomach. A good Josie is sure to have the most recent Black Eyed Peas song as her ringtone. The best place to find a Josie in my home town is at McFadden's, the Bro bar of all Bro bars in downtown Portland. Lucky for you, I happen to have stumbled across an online album with a bountiful supply of Brotos taken at McFadden's. Enjoy...

Bro vs Bro

Today's featured Bros...

prep-school Bros

While both of them are doubling up on the polo shirts, the pink polo Bro is really out-bro-ing his colleague. He's wearing a puka shell necklace AND has a cheap pair of aviator shades resting atop his head. He is also proudly displaying the A&F moose on his shirt; an unmistakable symbol of Bro-ness.

A Longlasting Tradition

Classic Bro Technique:



Backwards baseball cap from your favorite team. Though I must give him credit for sporting the Ninja Turtles tee. It is pretty daring.

"It's not like, it's love."

As my good friend Matt mentioned in the last post, I was on my honeymoon last week. I spent a good deal of time out in the sun, where I spotted many a Bro. Unfortunately, I did not capture the moments as often as I should have. Luckily, when I got from my trip and checked my email, I found that I had received an email from a Bro Spotter named Nicole Smith (geographical location unknown). She wrote...

"I love what you're trying to do here. It's not like, it's love."

She included these Brotos...

Beach Bro


Mardi Gras Bro


Thanks, Nicole.
