Never mind the Far Eastern Italian brands, we carry Italian Italian brands such as: Burr-oni Zeggnah Cannoli Mahreshhi Gravati...as in gravatational pull Marteyganee Burrgoaly got a call the other day for Hinckley Freedman...remember a customer getting very upset at Nordstrom many years ago because we didn't have any Alton-Edwards shoes...and then there was the guy who said how much he loved his Fagamoes...
When I worked at a watch store people would come in all the time asking for: Pateeeek Philipeh / Philipe Pateeek Tak Hugher Bret-iling Blankpain Jager le corum (so funny) But, of course who can forget the most misproununced clothing name of all time: Ermenegildo Zegna ? (or is it Zenga? lol) Jon.

I frequently travel to SE asia where brand name conciousness is very high. I love to embarass my sisters in law by mispronouncing their favorite brands in shops and around their friends. Sort of having a "farmer"/ hick in your family. My favorites Gucci pronounced "gukki" versace pronounced if it was written in french "versays" channel pronouned like the body of water between UK and france. and of course Louis Vuitton is spoken "lewis waitton"

I knew a guy named Versace who used that pronunciation. I guess at some point his family grew tired of correcting people and went with the flow.

Ah yes, as did former NBA head coach and current TNT basketball analyst Dick Versace.

Bye the way, this is also good with extremely snotty salespeople. Once you have been given tons of attitude, time to lash back. In the presence of the offending salesperson, dial a number on your cell phone, "Hey, I think I found the sunglasses you were looking for, yeah the ones with metal frames you liked. I think they have more than a few pairs. You want three pairs. ok" Then address the salesperson and say, "Three of those Gukki sunglasses, please". Watch his/her reaction. Are they biting their lips trying to correct you, are they rolling their eyes. Time to have some fun. Add comments like, " You guys have such a great collection of Gukki, I'll tell all my friends to come here too."

How about Brionni http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws....11&rd=1
Oh My.... WOW, I'll bet you they purchased it somewhere without seeing it to flip thinking it was a Brioni but nyooooooooo... it is genuine Brionni, same font in the label as Brioni. Oh man, that's funny. Better than Giorgio Armenia
