Racaille (French, originally means "scum") are a type of french gangster that wears a Lacoste cap, usually tight jeans or sweatpants.

This term refers to a despicable group, often the poorest part of the population. For some, a sense of socio-economic, for others a more socio-cultural, the definition referring to "a mass of despicable" does not recognize individual distinction, its use is invariable in the singular, feminine: "La racaille" ; sometimes coupled with a partitif: "de la racaille". "Racaille" generally means the publicized fringes of society, with the intelligence, motives and numerous privileges for the castes thus denoting them.
