    "Mr. Aponte got involved with the Bopping Bailerino Dragons, and quickly learned that being in a gang in those days was mostly about hanging out in hallways, waging frivolous battles over girls and, above all, looking sharp, by way of aggressively pressed chinos. gleaming cordovan dress shoes and snappy fedoras.

    "The biggest thing was dressing," Mr. Aponte said. "We had to have creases in our pants. People would see us and say, gee, I like your crease. Even when I thought I was a hippie in the 60's, I still had to have my crease.""
