Firstly, Even, congratulations on having such a big man as your husband --- big in guts, heart, and quality. And commiserations for having these cheap and nasty hangers on called "friends", as nothing you describe makes them sound in the least like friends. I hear of nothing they actually achieved other than what their richer background was able to buy for them. And while rich in money, they're obviously very deeply impoverished in soul, class, and sense.
And he's not only going to exceed these guys, in everything that really counts most, he has already exceeded them. Maybe they stay around because his politeness continues to alllow tem to act crassly and to feel superior --- whuch tells us how pathetically low their inner self-esteem, must be.
I don't suppose he'd like the idea of counselling, to work through the many issues raised in your message, though this could be profitable for him. It's a shame that he should feel he ought to look up to these inferiors, because he has nothing he could learn from them, and so much to teach them which they would be incapable of learning. But old habits die hard, and maybe he grew up used to this group hanging around together. And there is an element of jealousy there, as what he has, they couldn't buy.
Rather than confront head on the obvious value to you both of him abandoning these useless "friends" why not workk at it aslant, and rather try to encourage forming new and different friends as well as them ?
