do you assume people are a low class just because of the way they look?, meaning cheap clothes, old car, messy hair?

  • it really depends. sometimes i just get vibes. like if people wear sweats i don't automatically assume they don't have money. i love wearing sweats. everywhere. but if you look dirty like you haven't showered it kinda makes me think less of them. i know it's kinda judgemental and may not be the case at all but that's always what pops into my head.

  • no. I mean they had the money to get that car and clothes, and maybe they were too lazy to fix their hair. as the other said, not "low class" but maybe they dont have a lot of money, and/or could care less as long as they have clothes on their back and a working vehicle to get them from a to b.

  • Class isnt determined by what you wear or how much money you make...It determined by what kind of person you are and how you treat others.

  • Nope because I work in commercial real estate and one of my tenants own an investment company and he is a billionaire..he wears torn jeans, beat up sneakers, old clothes, etc.

  • Not necessarily, by the way they look. It is more about the way they act. Someone can be low income, but still carry themselves around well and not draw attention to themselves.

  • You can be low class with a ton of money. Class is based on how you act not how much money you have.

  • Class has nothing to do with being famous. It's like old money and new money. Old money families don't see new money families as being the same class as them.
