Cool, in a rugged wrong-side-of-the-tracks way. Comes from the S.E. Hinton novel The Outsiders. Oppose preppie, and differs significantly from tough.
You ain't tuff, and you never will be, ya preppie!

Tuff has the same meaning as 'tough.' However the word is spelt out t-u-f-f to emphasise how tough (hard, rough, strong, badass) something is.
