Someone dressed up in a zoot suit, aka zooter. Not necessarily a gangster, but always associated with cholos. The style originated in El Paso, TX back in the 1930s. Hence, El Paso is now known to many Chicanos as "El Chuco ."
Pachuco =/= Cholo
Get it right...

An underground mexican gang featured in an episode of Macgyver.
Ramon was a member of the pachucos, but did not really earn his right to be a leader because he didn't really "waste" luther's little brother.
