Snob is a pejorative term for a person that believes there is a correlation between social status and human worth. Snob refers to a person that feels superiority over those from lower social classes, education levels, or other social areas; the word snobbery came into use for the first time in England during the 1820s. A snob is a tool used by cobblers in the manufacture of footwear. Snobs can through time be found ingratiating themselves with a range of prominent groups – soldiers, poets, farmers – for the primary interests of snobs is distinction, as its definition changes, so and will the objects of the snob's admiration. Snobbery existed in mediaeval feudal aristocratic Europe, when the clothing, manners and tastes of every class were codified by customs or law. Chaucer, a poet moving in the court circles, noted the provincial French spoken by the Prioress among the Canterbury pilgrims: And French she spoke full fair and fetisly After the school of Stratford atte Bowe, For French of Paris was to her unknowe.
William Rothwell notes "the simplistic contrast between the'pure' French of Paris and her'defective' French of Stratford atte Bowe that would invite disparagement". Snobbery surfaced more as the structure of the society changed, the bourgeoisie had the possibility to imitate aristocracy. Snobbery appears when elements of culture are perceived as belonging to an aristocracy or elite, some people feel that the mere adoption of the fashion and tastes of the elite or aristocracy is sufficient to include someone in the elites, upper classes or aristocracy. However, a form of snobbery can be adopted by someone not a part of that group; such a snob idolizes and imitates, if possible, the manners and lifestyle of a classification of people to which they aspire, but do not belong, to which they may never belong. The term "snob" is misused when describing a "gold-tap owner", i.e. a person who insists on displaying wealth through conspicuous consumption of luxury goods such as clothes, cars etc. Displaying awards or talents in a rude manner, boasting, is a form of snobbery.
A popular example of a "snob victim" is the television character Hyacinth Bucket of the BBC comedy series Keeping Up Appearances. William Hazlitt observed, in a culture where deference to class was accepted as a positive and unifying principle, "Fashion is gentility running away from vulgarity, afraid of being overtaken by it," adding subversively, "It is a sign the two things are not far apart." The English novelist Bulwer-Lytton remarked in passing, "Ideas travel upwards, manners downwards." It was not the ingrained and fundamentally accepted idea of "one's betters" that has marked snobbery in traditional European and American culture, but "aping one's betters". Snobbery is a defensive expression of social insecurity, flourishing most where an Establishment has become less than secure in the exercise of its traditional prerogatives, thus it was more an organizing principle for Thackeray's glimpses of British society in the threatening atmosphere of the 1840s than it was of Hazlitt, writing in the comparative social stability of the 1820s.
