I've come to realize that although my rules are strict, there are always loopholes. I normally hate PU and prefer to always buy real leather, unless it is purposely made to look even more synthetic. I'm usually not a fan of acid wash, unless it comes in an odd shape conducive to cholo short-making.

After seeing the top version of this cracked PU on Ivania, I clicked on over to ASOS to find that the jacket was better suited to my style and soon had these horrible (read: brilliant) pants in my cart as well. Funny how things go blank for a second.
