    I was wearing mine yesterday and some guy asked me "hey what kind of sneakers are those?"
    so I told him and he says "uh, how to you spell that" as he's typing into his iPhone...
    me: "L-A-N-V-I-N".
    him: "that's not what you said"
    me: :lol: "nevermind"

    A pair of ladies asked me what kind of boots I was wearing yesterday, and I had kind of a panic attack, mumbled "Maison Martin Margiela" in French while staring at the ground, and then spluttered that they could find "MMM" online if they were interested. I think everyone was a little traumatized.

    How do you say "Maison Martin Margiela" in French? Or rather, how do you say it in anything other than French?

    That's the thing; I don't know, and they did not understand.

    How hard and fast are blazer buttoning rules? This +J jacket has a high button stance for a 2 btn and looks a lot better with both buttons fastened.

    IPA transcriptions would be helpful I can still remember a bit of that from university linguistics.
    I think it's more maison (like a french house) maize-on mar-tain mar-jayla or jeyla but the j in that is a [ʒ] like the z in azure.

    Only philistines and rude people pronounce THE name in full, others just say MMMMMMh.



    But if you need to know, it's Mar JEE ella
