They often sport brightly colored hair, piercings, and even tattoos. They may use modern fabrics, such as latex, but still opt for the vintage cut and style. Pachucos were a subculture of Mexican-American men and women from the s to the s who dressed in zoot suits or similar types of clothing.
Zoot suits had broad-shouldered sport coats and baggy trousers which were cuffed tightly at the ankles and worn high on the waist. The coats usually had a key chain hanging from the pocket. The pachucos often wore ducktail hairstyles and accessorized with felt hats, tattoos, and sometimes even a concealed weapon.
Their hair was piled high, and they wore lots of makeup, especially lipstick. In , when the War Production Board tried to limit fabric consumption for suits, pachucos ignored these regulations and acquired their suits through bootleg tailors, which caused quite a scandal in wartime America.
Pachucos often spoke calo, a hybrid language influenced by indigenous languages, the dialect of gypsies, Spanish, and English. As the public grew to resent the pachucos, calo became a language known only to the members of this subculture.
Not only did these African men wear metal band T-shirts, they also sported cowboy hats and leather gear adopted from bikers. Their accessories included hunting knives and parts of dead animals, and most of them carried hollowed-out horns of cows from which they drank. Women also took part in this heavy metal movement. According to Marshall, there is fierce competition between members to see who can look the most brutal.

Originally, their name came from the Greaser Act of , which allowed Americans living in California to oppress Mexicans because of their supposedly poor, dangerous nature.
Thus, the name had a negative connotation and suited this subculture rather well because the rest of American society already viewed them as dangerous, violent individuals. However, they also became known as greasers because their greasy hair was always slicked back with various gels and pomades.
Often, they carried a comb with them so that they could manage their heavily styled hair at any time. Greasers wore leather jackets, jeans, black or white T-shirts that were tightly fitted, and motorcycle boots. They loved loud rock music, fast cars, and stripped-down motorcycles. Elvis Presley was their icon. Women also sported this look by wearing pencil skirts , poodle skirts, or straight-leg jeans with motorcycle jackets. It was a real contrast to the rest of society, especially as America entered a new age of widespread prosperity and strait-laced conformity after World War II.
Floggers were a phenomenon that originated in Argentina at the end of and then spread to other parts of Latin America, such as Mexico and Venezuela. This often led to huge numbers of followers and comments.
