I think the dictionary has it nailed.
a person who imitates, cultivates, or slavishly admires social superiors
and is condescending or overbearing to others.
a person who believes himself or herself an expert or connoisseur in a
given field and is condescending toward or disdainful of those who hold
other opinions or have different tastes regarding this field: a coffee snob.
1775–85; orig. uncert; first used as a nickname for a cobbler or
cobbler's apprentice, hence a townsman, someone of low class or lacking
good breeding, commoner, hence someone who imitates persons of higher rank
