    And do you shorten Les Miserables as Lay Miss? Because in Angleterre we say Lay Mizz.

    I understand it's a distortion but you wouldn't want them dragging it out Hermèsse would you?

    Anyway it's been a lovely afternoon.

    If anyone's going, pick me up a green breast pocket wallet while you're there.

    I don't know if you want a real answer, and frankly we're both tired of this conversation, but if you do : the "s" at the end of Hermès is an "ss" sound (/s/ in phonetics, • • • in morse code, Sierra in military terms) while the "s" in Misérables is a 'z" sound (/z/ in phonetics, – – • • in morse code, Zulu in military terms).

    :cheers:

    my boutique says it err-mess. H is silent and there is no accent on the initial e.

    I know the è doesn't make an 'a' sound simply because I've learned a bit of french, thus I believe this to be correct.

    And none of that French accent please.

    well you could go wrong with anyone of them still.

    example: demeulemeester, is the 'meul' part pronounced like 'mule' or pronounced like 'mull'
