Greasers, 1950s. Greaser: a person dressed in rockabilly (WHERE did that expression come from?!) fashion and styles his hair in a pompadour or other tall retro hairstyle with a petroleum based pomade, such as seen in the movies: Grease, The Outsiders, West Side Story, Rebel Without Cause, etc (from urban dictionary)


Smoking in the 50s was a way of life, especially for the Greasers. "I was shaking. I want a cigarette. I want a cigarette. I want a cigarette. We had smoked our last pack". Many times throughout the novel smoking was mentioned during difficult times in the boys life, it was a way for them to cope with struggles. Hinton, SE (2012-05-15). The Outsiders (p. 57).
