Stereotypical Long Island Male:

The Guido

Often portrayed as humorously and incorrigibly uncultured with a thuggish and macho attitude and an unyielding pride in his Italian ancestry.

They are commonly thought of to wear gold chains, sweat or track suits, unbuttoned dress shirts, tank tops or guinea T’s and North Face or leather jackets.

They have a common hairstyle known as the blowout or tape up. Slicked back hair is also associated with the Guido stereotype.

The Gotti Boys and Tony Soprano are examples of stereotypical “Guidos”.

  • Although many people from Long Island are somewhat spoiled, they still have to work hard for things and don’t always just have everything handed to them.
