    Akademiks was my favorite clothing line for so long. But have you guys seen their new clothes? Simply go to drjays dot com and check out their new line up. Or Akademiks dot com. All their new clothes have this native american tribal theme to it and its ugly as fuck ! What are they thinking? Who would actually wear this garbage?

    Name other clothing lines that fell the fuck off.

    yea idk what theyre thinkin lol but i copped an akademiks shirt back in the summer that had some african tribal shit all over it but i think its kinda hot i guess other ppl do too.

    idk if south pole was ever on in the first place but yeah that is some whack apparel.

    def ecko, as anyone on this site will tell you lol.

    it may just be that these clothing lines cant keep up with the new styles/trends, or better yet they cant set them. shit even a few years ago you could have phat farm, guess, rocawear, ecko, mecca, etc and that shit was cool but nowadays if youre rockin that ppl will think you got it from A.J. Wright.

    Word, I was gonna say the same thing..Ecko may not have necessarily fell off..they just haven't evolved with the times..and the general look of their clothes is played out now

    LRG isnt really one of my favs, but theyre able to keep up and maintain a variety of both non-flashy and flashy styles. its kinda like they got something for everyone and chances are no matter your style you can always find an LRG piece to fit in your wardrobe.

    Damn Jordan once I start to think you're not 100% cornball you go and drop a statement like that..I guess the only thing we can agree on is Nikes and LRG. You're tacky as hell. Ed Hardy is wack, trying to jump on the 'Rock Star' bandwagon IMO. All that other shit is gaudy.

    Ed Hardy's white hoodies are dope.


    My girlfriend started modeling for akademiks recently. Their guy shit is bad these days though.

    They're jumping on the indy style bandwagon, look at the designs on Karmaloop and you'll know what I'm sayin.

    lrg been fell off to me....

    ever since it got popular the style got dumbed out....clothes also are made of cheaper material....when lrg was a smaller company they made better clothes

    akademiks did the same shit....when they were smaller they had better clothes....now they are putting out trash
