I grew up in a upper class neighborhood, most of the houses were a $million+ and this was in the 90's. Very few people drove super rich people cars, there were a lot of Lexus and BMW suvs, but I would say over half the cars were completely normal non luxury. Very few of them were fat, but it wasn't because they were eating all organic free range crap, I went over to a kids house who's dad was a CEO of a middle sized business and they would always order pizza for Friday nights. People would travel semi frequently, maybe 3 trips a year out of country. Most house I visited weren't all the up to date in terms of interior design, though they were well done, probably too much of a hassle to bother updating constantly. I did notice they all spent a lot of money on landscaping though for some reason, I suppose it's a lot more visible to your neighbors. Everyone was always pretty religious about visiting the doctor and dentist every 6 months, hair cuts once a week, that sort of thing. Really it's kinda hard to tell unless they are dressed up, I know the owner of a bank who drives a highlander and wears a tweed vest every day.

I knew a guy who had almost a billion dollars. He dressed sloppily, was overweight, always had disheveled hair, and had no grace or manners. But he was super nice, ridiculously high energy (I would say manic even), very high IQ, and kind of a goofball. The only way you'd know he was rich was if you went to his mansion or flew in his private jet.
As for me, I've got $400k in my portfolio which I know isn't rich but is far above most people my age (early 30s). I drive an econobox and wear hand-me-downs, never eat out, repair my own vehicles and appliances, and generally am cheap as hell. I hide my 'wealth' in every way possible because 1) I don't like gold diggers, and 2) I enjoy the simple life (doing things myself instead of paying for them to be done).

If you want to retire early and take long vacations.. guess what.. you can.

You're a type of guy that I aspire to be in about ten years. Not actually having money, but having the strength to beat the curse of it by flashing your money everywhere. Even now I try my best to hide the wealth I have because when people start knowing you have it their very perception of you changes and they may bug you for favors down the road. Probably my only weakness right now is that I give out too much money, I participate in charities, if I see a beggar I give him some change etc... but I am afraid of what may happen and how I'll change if I do get significant wealth one day.

In elementary school I saw a sign in the cafeteria: cookies 10 cents a piece or three for a quarter. It blew my young mind that I could get more cookies just by buying more at once. Problem was that I only had enough money for one cookie each day.

The cookies were very good. I managed to save my money being very patient enough to save up 50 cents. Took me a week.

The following week I got 6 cookies, basically bought five and got one free! I started eating my cookies, then some nigger wanted a cookie. I was about to and then I thought that it took me a week of no cookies to do this. Amazing how fast it goes from begging and being nice to violent insults when they don't get their cookie.

Anyway this is an example of saving wealth for purpose. I later learned it was more fun to save money to make more money!

Good shoes can also be an investment. Fuck the assholes that determined paki sweatshop crap that needs replacement 2x a year should be the norm.

I dont think there's any true way of telling. My grandparents owned a chain of pharmacies and they would wear clothes from thrift stores and drove the same buick for over 20 years. My cousin on the other hand drives a ferrari, lives in palm springs and is constantly ballin out everywhere he goes. Both have similar wealth (my cousin might have a bit more, but I have no clue about their residual incomes, just what they sold their businesses for), but live entirely different lifestyles.

i'm about halfway toward early retirement and have about $360K in the market working for me pulling in about 20K in passive income per year. Another 10 years and I'll be FI and do what I want instead of what I need to.

This. I have a 2016 Honda Civic that I leased. I will more than likely be buying it when my lease is up in September as it is in incredible shape and only has 11k miles on it. I can easily get another decade out of it if not more.
