    hello,

    this may sound silly but what would you consider a chav?

    i feel the term can be used far too often

    Burberry, heavy gold chains, 4-finger ring or sovereign, etc. I never paid much attention to the whole group status **** in school, because quite frankly, I don't care if your an emo or scene or whatever. From what I do gather, rude boys and chavs are different things (at least from my mates in East London). Rude boys are the ones associated with terrorising people and seriously have a bite, not just a bark. They're all just labels. I'm sure we could ask people in several areas and they would each come up with a different definition.

    Lower class ? There were plenty of chavs from rich families, at least here in Brighton.

    I'm sure there isn't. Rich boys with gold chains are not the same as your proper "chav". Anyway, i meant class as in the level of ones standards rather then how much their parents earn and what they do.

    Essentially this.

    I hate it when people call people wearing New Era caps, air forces/filas/adidas shell toes etc, who don't wear lacoste/burberry etc clothing a chav. It pisses me off, cos they're so different.

    By the way, chav music =/= RnB/Rap/Grime/Hip Hop etc.
    It's more put a donk on it, bassline, dnb etc music.

    Say nada.

    Ahh I wasn't sure which you meant but it's true, chavs came from all sort of families and hung out together, doing the exact same things. Only difference is the richer chavs probaly got good jobs through their parents after their phase.

    Just a term for the scruffy low-class imo.

    Low class in terms of values and failure to exercise decorum rather than purely financial terms.
