The United States of Bros: A Map and Field Guide Funny article. I don't notice any bros in DC, but I probably run with the wrong crowd. Is your current city full of bros? What cities have a lot of bros? And is that a bad thing?

I feel like their "mid-Atlantic bro" better describes bros from southern New England. I mean both Sperry and Vineyard Vines were founded and are headquartered here for crying out loud!

May be they were trying for transatlantic. The kind of people that would send their kids to English boarding schools or their like.

I don't know about better describes NE, because it definitely fits the bill for all the old money/pretending to be old money douches I've encountered from Hatteras to Hilton Head and much of Florida, too. I think the common denominators are proximity to water and appearance (in their minds) of aristocratic boat culture.

So, I would move to propose that they're renamed as "Eastern Coastal Bros". In the south, they're often more closely related to the Southern Frat Bros (and in some ways M*sshole Bros) than Miami Bros.

yeah that whole boating culture is like that on the east coast, oxford shirts, docksiders , ray bans angled in a douchey way,frat culture is huge in bro culture too
"
that was funny quote about southern bros "fancying themselves to be "gentleman" (one source familiar with southern bros even referred to them as "gentleman bros")

I don't know! That description fits a more New England stereotype. Not even Annapolis area sailor wannabe bros are like that. Though Annapolis and south Florida area "yachty's" may have similar dress but they are in a whole other world then the general beer/rum drinkin coastal boat bros of the Mid-Atlantic region!

The "coastal bros I would picture wear some kind of boat shoe that works and is comfortable (not sperry) or flip flops (Though Annapolis bros will wear Sperry's though) Shirts may be HUK or Under Armor but the closer one gets to the actual coast it will be some kind of boating oriented T-shirt (might even be in camo) The glasses are not some fancy name brand style glasses but usually quality ones such as Costas or Ocean Waves. Shorts will be some kind of board shorts. All that will be topped with a hat. No, not the captains hat on a stereotypical snobbish New England yachty but a baseball cap with some kind of logo. Basically the same style dress if waxing, fishing, drinking, changing oil, going out on a date to a fancy restaurant or planning on hitting the bars/clubs and closing them down. That's an east coast boat bro how I see it!

That seems pretty common in DC as well. Well, I guess DC is mid Atlantic.
