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.

Nowadays, the Racailles can be called «Lacoste TN» (which refers to their clothing style, most of the time being a Lacoste sportswear with Nike TN sneakers) or «Les gars de cité» (meaning Guys from the Hood).
