    a BBC clip

    This is a clip from the news: Over at Harrods, they now spend five times more than Americans. Then it follows "They live for_a f... t...looking modest."


    I am not sure about the underlined part, which I record in the enclosed part. Could any native teacher help me out?

    Thank you!

    Jason

    not a teacher

    It's difficult to be sure without more context, but what I hear is: "Leaving the flash Texan looking modest".

    I am not a teacher.

    That's almost right.

    I hear, 'They leave a flash Texan looking modest'.
