I wear cheap knock off 5.11's because I find them comfortable. I sometimes wonder though if I am 'broadcasting' more than I want to though with them. I don't wear anything else that's 'cop' or para military in nature though.
I've started putting my flashlight in one of the pockets instead of on my belt to go more with the blending in process.
I'm interested in blending in more. Though I don't think 5.11's by themselves necessarily make you stand out...at least not around here.
Another thing I used to do was when I would enter a restaurant I would stop at the door and scan the room. I'm more circumspect about that now.
