About Akademiks

Donwan Harrell, the founder of Akademiks, is a highly skilled fashion designer. He has worked on many hip hop brands including Nike and Donna Karan. With the motto "Denim is key", Akademiks burst onto the scene in 1999 with a professional style that made college kids giddy. Finally a hip hop brand that appealed to their sense of style without causing controversy.

True to the hip hop culture, Akademiks is an American based urban clothing brand that is promoted by acclaimed rappers such as 50 Cent and Fabolous. Slightly less dangerous than the traditional hip hop gear that is on the market, Akademiks manages to appeal to both the student and the person out to have a good time with button down shirts, vests, jackets, skirts, and jeans.

Akademiks might not be as established as its competition, but with a large amount of retailers beginning to carry their clothes, it is a matter of time before they are giving the bigger companies a run for their money. Their clothing is great for someone who wants to project an intelligent and sophisticated image while still staying fashion forward.

Prices on their shirts, jackets, and hoodies range from $20 dollars to $120 dollars. The aggressive jackets, bombers, and graduate fleeces are among the popular items that fly off the shelf. Not only are they great fitting, unbelievably comfortable, but they come in all sizes.
