Posh people things

What seemingly innocent thing screams "posh" to you? For example, if I walk into your home and you have an entry table with fresh flowers, you seem so posh and sophisticated. Or people who pronounce "cr" (like in Christopher) with a more pronounced ck sound. I can't explain it but it's like Ch-slight milisecond pause-ristopher. Yeah. Fancy.

 Yes! My brother uses starch when he irons!
I wouldn't even know how starch is used (or an iron for that matter)! He thinks he's fancy!

 But what if my floor is visible because I’m so poor I have few possessions. Would that make me posh?
