A Few Tips for Drawing Less Attention to Yourself
We’ve written quite a lot about the benefits of being a Grey Man. As a matter of fact, you can check out our blog that was devoted entirely to that topic. In today’s post, we’re going to provide our readers with a few more tips for becoming the type of person that’s prepared for anything that comes your way while also making sure that you’re not drawing any unnecessary attention to yourself.
So what does the definitive Grey Man look like? That’s a tough question to answer, due in large part to the fact that it just depends. There’s no such thing as the perfect formula which is why we can’t simply say, “okay, wear this, use this custom gun holster, practice this, do this, never do that, and you’re all set.” It’s going to take a bit of engagement on your part to figure out what it means for you. Luckily, however, we’re here to help.
A Few Things to Keep in Mind
In our first blog on the subject, we highlighted a few aspects that are vital to keep in mind--you have to be skilled, be prepared, and blend in. Being skilled means choosing the best holster and firearm combo and knowing how to use the tools you have at your disposal (take a look at a few tips on becoming well-rounded courtesy of the team at Fierce Defender). Being prepared means being able to walk into a room with the situational awareness of Jason Bourne and having a plan in the event that the unthinkable happens.
Blending in? Well, that’s the topic of discussion in today’s blog. So how exactly do you go about becoming one with your surroundings? What does it take to draw less attention to yourself? To put it simply, it breaks down to two vital components--how you carry yourself and what you’re wearing.
In other words, you don’t want to walk around like some macho tough guy who thinks he owns the place. Nor do you want to wear something that stands out like a sore thumb. Subtlety is the name of the game here.
So What Should You Wear?
The answer to this question is whatever keeps you from standing out. A good bet is to wear a nice pair of dark denim jeans and a flannel shirt or a plain oxford. It’s timeless and it shows that you care about your appearance, but it’s ultimately something that a number of other people are also wearing. Win/win. Choosing clothes that fit properly also ensures that you don’t end up accidentally revealing the custom gun holster underneath. Win/win/win.
Of course the best thing you can do to make sure that you’re drawing less attention to yourself is just to figure out what you need in any given situation. Use your instincts, dress intelligently, and be prepared for whatever comes your way. Those are the keys to your success.
