Most waftys are male and can be easily distinguished from the general chav crowd by a variety of combinations of the following:
- Spend far too long worried about their appearance, this is usually extremely obvious in the long hair which has been styled into a rather feminine or ott style.
- They usually appear in pink t-shirts or shirts (these may or may not seem to be slightly small)
- Most wafties wear jeans (although not all jean wearing people are wafties :P)
- The majority of wafties see themselves as great footballers (whether they are or not)
- Wafties will attempt to "big themselves up" to look tougher than they really are.
- They seem to have unbelievably fit girlfriends but who are also unbelievably "blonde"
---Distinguishments from a Chav---
- A male chav will almost never wear pink (see chav definitions)
- Chavs mostly travel in herds (lots of them with lots of wool between the ears) whilst wafties are mostly found in groups of 2 or 3 at most (other than when they are attempting to play football)
