How do you pronounced the Dutti in Massimo Dutti?

I said Doo-tee the other day to a customer and it didn't sound... correct?

I think [doo-tee] is correct, just make sure you pronounce the 'doo'-part really short

Errm ... sorry to interrupt but if you go to the original thread of "How to pronounce ..."you will see that the debate of Hermes was settled by appointing the fact that Hermes is NOT a french word, its greek.

So you DO pronounce the "s" at the end.

(Info came from frenchpeople and even frenchpeople who work there. Totally worth checking out )

I hate when someone pronounces Proenza Schouler, like "Eskuler" when it's "Shuler".

- Demeulemeester: Der-miu ?
- Aquascutum

^ oh come on, you can go search the previous post then you will find Jack pronounced it skuler. it's one special case.
and another is Prou-en-za.

Sui is like s-wee
Demeulemeester is like dey-myu-le-myee-ster
Cushnie et Ochs is just the way it looks, in an American way
Olivier Theyskens is olivi-ye taiskens

^^ I can only help for French, so click on these names to listen how it's pronounced (thanks Festat for the tip !) , though it obviously doesn't sound very natural, the pronunciation is correct


Balmain

Lanvin (but the "vin" is too stressed here, which is not needed)
Maison
Hervé Léger

the 'engine' doesn't pronounce Mabille very well so it's better to listen on YouTube, like here a 00.02.

it's not..?! if you have seen "behind the scenes" you will find this question answered, and even the designer themselve say "Skuler" like Pricciao said.

Rodriguez is : Rod-drii-ges ( the o proncounced like in odd)
and Ohne Titel is german : Oone (a short e like the a in wanna or kinda .. sry I dont have any better example yet) Tii-tel


I found a site to record voices. I think this is pretty nessecary since writing is kinda difficult and you just know see and learn it the best while hearing.
