The word means rich
, loaded, fancy, toff
, toffee nosed, upper crust, well off, or well to do. The origin of this word actually derives from an old Romany Gypsy
slang word for pennies, i.e. if you've a lot of pennies

Please note: a wrong but often repeated even on this website is the urban myth is that the word POSH orginated from Port Out Starboard Home - based on based on the position of the more expensive cabins on a passenger ships from England to India - but this is actually nonesense whch has been commonly repeated.

It come from the day of steamers traveling to the far east from Britain passing by Cape town. The leg Cape Town to the far east was in hot weathers and the ship had the starboard side always facing south. The cabins would get very hot on that side so a port cabin on the outbound jurney was preferable. The reverse applied to the homebound jurney. Hence the most expensive tickets where those: Port Outbound Starboard Homebound, simply marked as P.O.S.H.
