(surprise, surprise! he's from the Inland Empire!)
As you can see, NOT a preppy. He's got:
-Stupid tattoos-Baggy shorts-Clothing and accessories from some flavor-of-the-month lifestyle-apparel company (in this case, his own)-Not pictured: crooked baseball caps, black knee-high socks, black bandana
Your archetypal bro-ho(es):
-No concept of dignity and/or feminism-Wannabe low-budget pornstar style-Lousy taste in guys (note crooked hat, Hurley shirt, soul-patch)
Your archetypal bro's ride:
-Overcompensation combined with conspicuous consumerism/obnoxiousness
I know more than a few bros, having gone to high school with them and working with a few in the past. They are very competitive, always trying to outdo each other wrt fashion and trucks. They are not really the fraternity type, as they either get construction jobs out of high school or go to community colleges (if their parents will pay for them to not work). They were nu-metal's target demo, but they also some enjoy some hip-hop and new-school punk like Pennywise, Bad Religion, and AFI (which is funny, because they are homophobic). You could tell when AFI hit big with them because they all started dying their hair and wearing black. Snowboarding, motocross, and off-roading in their trucks are the preferred activities apart from drinking and fighting. The girls are often tanning-bed orange and have fake breasts.
Also, they terms "bro" and "bro-ho" were originally perjoratives, but they've come to embrace the term.

bros ripping off bros
At one of the world's biggest gatherings of Web culture, a 28-year-old executive talks about landing a tech job by sending a CEO "bikini shots" from a "nudie calendar" he created.
On campus at Stanford University, a hot startup attracts recruits with a poster asking if they want to 'bro down and crush some code.'"
And the world's largest Internet registration company entices Web entrepreneurs with a Super Bowl ad in which two female celebrities paint its logo onto the body of an apparently naked model.
Forget what you think you know about the benignly geeky computer programmer who lives for the thrill of finding a single misplaced semicolon in thousands of lines of code.
And welcome to the world of the "brogrammer."
