What do you think about HK Army?

HK Army is now a very well known team/company. What do you guys think about the way they act?

Wrong section.

But personally, I believe that HK Army is just how they are. They have always been about having fun with friends and not giving a **** about where the lines in the box line up, and obviously, it's working for them. They aren't telling the idiot 12 year olds "Hey kids! Go out and be a douche!", the 12 year old that would regularly go out and be a douche just happens to wear HK stuff.

I don't find this to be the wrong section...

Anyway, I think HK is either horribly understaffed, or they really just don't care about customer service. Been waiting for my team's custom jerseys since APRIL!!! They sent us one botched batch after nearly 3 months, promised us new jerseys to replace the botched. It's been 4 months since then, and no word. Not a phone call, email, NOTHING! Not only will I never go to them for a jersey again, I doubt I'll ever even consider any product by HK.

I like them, they atleast have a presence(physically and mentally) unlike some of these other boring teams. Company wise their stuff for the most part is quality, with some duds like anything.

I encountered my first "agglet" this past weekend.....

It was comical to say the least.... But, in all honesty, I just chalked it up to a kid just being a 15 y/o kid.

They get quite a bad rep from so called "agglets" but to be fair, a douche is a douche, whether or not they're dressed in HK gear, all Dye head to toe, or Empire. Say what you want, PBFashion and HK have their business strategy locked down, they're successful at what they do, and pervy stache aside, Mark Kressin seems alright. Everyone gives kids in HK gear a lot of crap, but I've seen enough kids wearing all sorts of different brands acting like clowns. Admittedly, the whole drinking, partying, image they give off can be seen as pretty annoying or stupid, but I'm in my last year of high school, and that kind of asshattery happens no matter what, there's a party every week.

TL;DR - They are what they are, and I don't mind 'em.
Oh, and they're the only guys that had an easy to find Japanese style rising sun flag headband, and I can't say jack about their speed feed, thing's a beast.

The whole "HK Lifestyle" would probably seem cool to younger kids, but as someone who's already had my time with drinking/drugs and partying, it just rings really hollow to me. Younger kids following their example will be over-fried burnout alcoholics by age 28.

I am an HK supporter but agglets do give HK a bad name a lot. I've met mark twice and he really seems like just a cool chill guy, as do most of their employees that I have encountered. It's just that a bunch of 15 year old kids get their mommies to buy them HK stuff head to toe then they run around thinking they're hot ****. Agglets especially piss me off when rather than help new players at the field, they run them down or bonus ball the hell out of them because they want to be recball-superstars.
