Urban Dictionary defines the word “Hi-Tone” as:
“The state which something or someone is in when they have reached the coolest of cool.”
Usage: “Man, I love what you have done with that ’49 mercury, it is hi-tone.”
I would agree with that definition but I’d also add a number two:
2. Acting better than, superior to or snobby. Upper crust.
Usage: “Look at the way she dresses, she’s all hi-tona.”
“Hi-Tona” was a word I heard around the house growing up when I was being a brat and a word that crossed my mind a few weeks ago when I was wearing a neon pink dress with my awesome “lady gaga” sunglasses.
