The classy kind (4)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'kind' is the definition.
(I know that kind can be written as sort)

'the classy' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'the' could be 't' (the is pronounced as a 't' sound in some dialects) and 't' is found in the answer.
The remaining letters 'sor' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This explanation may well be incorrect...

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for sort that I've seen before include "'Variety, type (4)'" , "Group" , "Type, category" , "Arrange systematically" , "Tidy" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
