Oh yeah, I would add that social context also has alot to do with being classy. For instance, there is nothing classy about going into a working class bar and stikcing one's nose in the air and taking a attitude with the people trying to unwind there.

A person of class knows where and when. Sometimes a little vulgarity can be a sign of class, amongst the right people and at the right time and place.

Some may disagree w/me, as we all have opinions, but here's mine: A person w/class has as said before self-respect, confidence in themself, cares for mankind in general before he/she does themself(as in helping others), the way they dress means nothing to me, it is about character. A classy person could be someone dressed "poorly" yet as the manners of a lady/gentleman. A high society person could be dressed "to kill" have no manners, no compassion, which to me equals to no class. A persons character glows if they have class, if their character has no "class" then the person will be dull, boring and no glow. Does that make sense?

Class is to rank something, or group it.

The word everyone is looking for is Integrity.

The Dictionary, Thesaurus, and Encyclopedia all seem to agree, hmmmmm

Metalic Blue I never argue with a man when he's right.....

I prefer a man with class. He knows how to dress, and there is nothing wrong with casual, but lots wrong with sloppy.
, is indeed refering to classy.

OP's
To me class is self respect, manners, self confidence, caring about others, selective and discriminating.
, is Integrity

One can dress with class and still have no integrity, or have integrity without the appearance of class.

The person who has class is the person who people will notice when they enter a room. It has nothing to do with looks or how they dress. It has more to do with the way they carry themselves and the air of confidence that they portrait.
Once you get closer to the person you realize that they are the type who do not need to be in the spotlight-- they can make another person shine by taking a genune interest in the people around them. They are the ones that tend to be the natural leaders but also encourage everyone to become the best they can. They can easily talk to anyone in the room. They may start the conversation but do not need to talk nonstop with nothing to say. They have learned how to listen. They know how to get another person to talk. They have learned how to put another person before themselves.
They would likely be embarrassed to be in public with displays of rudeness (burping/ farting/ readjusting the bra straps/ readjusting the "boys" etc). What I am saying here is that they know and practice the appropriate manners and behaviors to be accepted in and by the public.
Notice that I tried to be nongender here-- there are plenty of classy men and women out there---- we just tend to not be the first ones noticed as we allow the more crass ones take the spotlight for now-- knowing in confidence that when it really counts-- we will shine through!! LOL!!
