Do you pronounce the "th" in the word "clothes"?

    The word ''clothes'' is pronounced either:

    kloʊðz

    Where the ''th'' pronounced.

    OR

    kloʊz

    Where the ''th'' is not.

    It depends who says it and in which country they are from.

    Both pronunciations of the word ''clothes'' are correct.

    I pronounce it the same as the word close, but it depends on your regional accent or international forms of English as to how it may be pronounced by each individual English speaker.

    Yes you do pronounce it! It is a hard 'th' sound, like in "THe" rather than in "baTH"
