What image does 'Aussie bloke' conjure in your mind? I certainly have mind image but I think it may be little outdated.
A work mate let me down. I would describe him as an ocker Aussie. I was annoyed at the time but I get over such stuff quickly. He apologised profusely at the time. He apologised the next time I saw him. And apologised once again and then I saw tears in his eyes. (I am guessing he is under some extreme stress)
One of R's straight male workmates crashed a work car today. When he returned to work after the accident and saw R, he burst into tears. R did not know what to do. Comforting hugs for straight blokes is not the thing to do. R just told him, don't worry, no one hurt, only work car, insurance will pay.
He was dressed like a building worker. Faded jeans, fag in the corner of his mouth and orange safety vest. He was walking a poofy little white dog on a red leash.
Thankfully I have my youngest brother as a good example of an Aussie bloke. He would never cry and not be seen dead with a poofy white dog. Having to introduce his older brother and his mate is bad enough for him.
