Originaly a jitney was an African who wears their traditional tribal dress (especially in a setting that it looks out of place- eg. a city) however the word can also be used as a general term for someone who wears traditional dress or just stands out from the crowd.
I was watching a show on Cape Town and in there were a group of Jitneys on the street when everyone else was wearing suits
HAHA who comes to work in a Pink shirt; that guy is such a Jitney
