Concealed means Concealed. No advertising.
I used to think that this was a bid deal, but when you look around, it's a non-issue. To be concerned about this is a prime example of "majoring in the minors".

I love my Got Glock hat, but will definitely not wear it if it would potentially reveal something.
Do you really want to advertise you are carrying? best to save for range days. really want to help cause? join the NRA

Glock G19 - Generation 2 (our first)

Taurus PT709 Slim - mostly used as a bug (Sold 8/2010, did not like the quality after owning it for a few months)
Ditto, you'd be hard pressed to find more than 3 articles of clothing in my closet that have logos of any sort that are non-work related.
I think that of all my "street" attire, I wear two pieces of clothing that have logos on them, my USMC ball cap which has an Eagle Globe and Anchor, and the one 5.11 T-shirt that has the 5.11 logo on it, but the logo is really, really small, and even that was given to me.
I have a bunch of NRA and gun company shirts, but I typically wear them only to go to work at the gunshop. If I have to stop on the way to or from there at the Post Office or grocery store or something, I don't worry about it, but I hardly ever wear them out and about.
The NRA, Marine Corp. stuff etc. I dont see as the same as a company logo. I still wont wear them, but its different because you are a part of the NRA, or you are a part of the Marines.
You dont work for Glock, you are nothing more than a customer who likes the product.

If it's not Micheal Kors or Armani then it doesnt cover this skin, so the logo thing wouldnt be a problem for me.
Mixed Martial Arts Record= 2-0.......Kyokushin Karate Record=5-0
USMC.....helping enemies of America die for their countries since 1775
I have a Gunsite hat with the raven logo. I happen to like the hat and I do wear it. No one is familiar with the logo anyway so I'm not making any statement or advertising anything. That's about as close as I'll get to wearing patches or logos that are gun related.

I am like Sixto and also prescribe to the grey man theory. No logos at all, even on the range. I give all my freebie logo swag away.
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
Life is too short to sweat the small stuff.
I'll wear whatever suits me.

The news is full of examples over the years of folks having their cars targeted due to bumper stickers, or thugs targeted due to the apparent "colors" they're sporting, or people being targeted simply because they appear different (for any number of reasons ... hippie, earring, looking "gay").
Nature has it right. A flock of birds on the wing protects individuals expressly due to each blending in. The same principle can be leveraged with humans in a crowd. To the one avoiding attack, it might well seem somewhat-greater-than-small stuff.
