One of the latest discussions heating up the Internet these days is how you can tell if someone has “stealth wealth.”

This particular brand of rich people doesn’t wave around wads of cash, constantly post pics on social media from their exotic vacations, or wear expensive clothing plastered with designer logos. Instead, Urban Dictionary defines people with “stealth wealth” as someone “who would be considered extremely wealthy from the looks of their bank accounts, but choose to remain understated and quiet about their wealth.”

Common traits of the “stealthy wealthy” being thrown around online are wearing well-fitting clothes, having lots of free time, and not knowing what the price of everyday household items (like a gallon of milk) is.

All of that certainly applies to the subtly wealthy everywhere, but here in Western New York, there are some very specific signs we can pick up on to know that someone has a lot in their bank account without having to ask.
