My latest French word: déclassé

déclassé = dey-class-eh

The word my wife has been using quite a lot while I am packing my suitcase for our departure to Paris at 6AM tomorrow. Here it is in context:
You can't take that! It's déclassé.
Seems a lot of my fancy Pacific NorthWest attire is déclassé.

Maybe I am déclassé?

dé·clas·sé adj.
1. Lowered in class, rank, or social position.
2. Lacking high station or birth; of inferior social status.
