And we come full circle to my point about making regrettable purchases by trying to match what's on paper to the price instead of looking at the bigger picture. I wore those Akademis twice. Total fucking garbage.
i wish i could find some jeans w/ cool multicolored buttons though, those were the one redeeming quality of the jean.
srsly... i used to be whiny and think people were being smug when they spoke negatively of cheap denim thinking only of the price as it was inexpensive... but if something seems to good to be true [in the case of akademi = selvage,made in japan,hidden rivets,...] it probably is.
uncontrol-fwiw, you can see the seam under the leather on my kmw's
