The average European, even if they are say, a unionized worker, knows the difference between a sports coat and a blazer. They're aware of class distinctions via clothing, via speech, via "socioeconomic cues" that your average American simply isn't even aware of. Your average European person of even moderate means will know immediately the difference between a sports coat and a blazer. The average American won't. The average European can detect class via social cues that the average American simply cannot. This is because the classes in Europe are much more accepted by the average person. They accept reality of class. Americans simply don't know their own class often let alone someone else. They don't know basic class structure 101 that your average European or upper class American kid learned when they were 12 years old.
