BUMP

I speak a moderate amount of German but I'd never considered this until now: are we expected to say Yil Sander? Or just regular-old Jil?

I also just realised that ACNE is an aronym. Am I supposed to say A.C.N.E. or just the word Acne?

edit: this sounds so paranoid.

I say Acne and I say Jil. From the U.S of A. Still I hate saying Sander because I jump between Zander and Sander. Screw it!

Acne is usually pronounced "Aak-neh". Or at least so all the SA's seem to say in their store.

Loden Dager -- how is the Dager pronounced?

Loden Dah-ger.

The 'Stephan' in Stephan Schneider:

Is it pronounced "Ste-f-awn" (as in 'yawn') or "Ste-fen" (as in 'even')?

Stef-in. Not Steven like Spielberg nor Stefan like cool version of Urkel.

It's drees, and also please don't say van (like fan) but more like vaughn. And Noten is like no ten.

So it's like: drees vaughn no ten

No dude...

Ahnn : correct

De : like 'the' but then with a stomped 't'

Moo: no man thats like a sound a cow makes! it's hard but try to pronounce 'meux' with a french accent that should work for americans/brits.

le: correct

maister: sort of correct, again hard if you ain't dutch or flemish.
