    I have a Dainese jacket that I love. Trouble is I've never been sure on the pronounciation of "Dainese". Is it "Dane-easy"?

    I don't know either. Any Italian speakers here? I pronounce it die-nee-zee, but it's probably not right.

    dane-e-zee
    die-nee-zee

    I guess I've said both, but I sorta stumble over the word every time I say it cause I've never really know what's right.

    die-nee-zee sounds more correct...

    Just say, "My leathers" and then you won't have to worry about it. :)

    day-nee-zee

    At least that's how it's pronounced in "Faster." When the back protector is talked about being invented.
