I own a couple pieces from AKM and I'd say the quality is similar to wjk (which is excellent). But AKM's pricing is about 20% higher, making it not the best value. However I've never been disappointed with any of the AKM pieces I've received. All have had very high quality fabric.
It's interesting how quickly many of the AKM pieces sell out at the shops in Japan that carry the label. Price appears to have little influence on these buyers. For example a 283,000 yen ($3600) coat was recently posted at a shop and all sizes were sold out in only a couple days. Other shops carrying the coat appear to be selling it briskly too.
