No shame in having a little extra disposable income and dressing well. Also, no shame in being modest.

Dressing like Victor in lower middle class Russia, would be the equivalent of wearing black tie to Cheesecake Factory.

But he is not saying he is lower middle class. He is saying he is doing ok, normal middle class (above) a bit if you would put it that way. And my response was that a middle class like him could afford bespoke and many other people in Europe or in US can to.

 

Actually i'm going bespoke to and I have a normal job, so we will see how that goes :)

I think people today, certainly in England underestimate what the middle class is. To me the middle class are doctors, lawyers and business owners.

The upper middle class are those above who come from old money.

The lower middle class are middle managers and those with middle class, well read tastes (such as myself), who believe they are middle class, but really are not.

In England there is a growing trend for the working class to think of themselves as middle class too.

It's a complex matter and derives from profession, income, education, taste and family background.

However overall if you are mid 30s and above and have a middle class partner who works, bought a house early and have no children, you should have enough disposable income to go bespoke if you sacrifice other things like newer cars and expensive holidays. It's a matter of priorities.

 Exactly what I think.. Couldn't agree more. Now let's end this and wait for Victors next bespoke outfit worship.gif

Well, with the healthcare the way it is going in the US many doctors don't make nearly as much money as they once did.

Using this logic, Atlanta = Lower Middle Class Russia. Which is probably a little unfair. To Russia.

Maybe, but in Canada where healthcare is an government "business" they still make a good money.

I guess that's little bit different logic of the guy who actually was born in USSR. Even middle class in Russia does not dress like Victor does smile.gif It is really different way of dressing.

One of the useful things that I've learned from StyFo is that young men in Southern California wear top hat and white tie to Holly Jolly Mocha, and that old men in Northern California wear deerstalkers and Inverness capes on dates.
