a Mexican-American teenager who belongs to a neighborhood gang and who dresses in showy clothes
Old school term for Chicano zooters - the dress, attitude, language, culture, etc.
Pachucos were Mexican American youth who developed their own subculture during the 1930s and 1940s in the Southwestern United States. They wore distinctive clothes (such as Zoot Suits) and spoke their own dialect (Caló). Due to their double-marginalization stemming from their youth and ethnicity, there has always been a close association and cultural cross-pollination between the Pachuco subculture and the gang subculture.
