I've heard several similar pronunciations: Lawn Jeans, Lahn jean.... anything along those lines is probably acceptable.

I go the Lawn-Jeans route but have heard lawn-gene-es too.

When I first started, I dappled with "Long-ginas" but didn't buy the brand so didn't follow through on the rumor I was starting about the pronounciation.

Clearly I wasn't the only one who wondered given the variety of links provided.
Oh heavens no! This kind of question pops up maybe 2 to 3 times a year.

Shouldn't that read 'JOISEY Made - what, youse godda problem widdat?'
Yeah, JOIZEY would have been the perfect finish. This was a collaberation of Photoshopping. Tim (member Foxti) added the bottom and since he's not from Joizey he didn't know that the phonetic spelling of the state was more acceptable than the real spelling so it was left that way. Still looks pretty good, eh?

New Jersey, New York, and Nevada: the three states that start with an N that the phrase "dig a hole" has nothing to do with planting shrubbery. :sneaky2::laugh::laugh: It's a "made" watch. :scared:
