    If you mean the shirtings company, the pronounciation is English. The company used to be English, but has since been aquired by the Italians.

    If you will indulge a small-city hick from the South - how are Kiton, Canali, and Brioni pronounced?

    Thanks, I was luckily two for three. "Keaton" I would have never gotten.

    Unfortunately, it's all academic for me... I doubt I'll ever be buying any anywhere but ebay or a thrift store if I'm lucky. [​IMG]
