Birmingham Private Detectives gives information about what a private detective wears when working on a case in response to recent article in BBC News by Steven McKenzie dated 11th April 2013: Spy wear: styling secret agents

What a private detective wears really makes a difference to an operation. The art of surveillance takes a great amount of effort to gain success and not being detected by the target takes skill and professionalism.

According to the BBC News report by Steven McKenzie the Harris Tweed industry has celebrated the use of its hand woven cloth in the Oscar award winning secret service thriller Argo, which is based on a true story. During a marketing launch campaign the Harris Tweed industry invited former CIA agent Tony Mendez, who was involved in the 1979 mission and in Argo is played by Ben Affleck, to lunch. After the lunch he talked about the CIA agent’s fondness for Harris Tweed during the mission and how different clothing differenced the groups like a uniform.

The report goes on to talk about the different attire fictional spies, private detectives and private investigators wear. James Bond 007 is always immaculate and has just the right outfit and matching spy equipment for the occasion. While Jason Bourne has a grungier look that can be practical and blend in with the situation when carrying out surveillance in the field but can just throw on a long black winter coat and be accepted in any posh hotel or office.

Private detectives in Birmingham, Birmingham Private Detectives have a vast amount of experience in surveillance operations and have found that what a private detective wears has a huge impact on success or failure in a case. Both Bond and Bourne dress in a way that mirrors that of the target and the targets piers or associates. Melting into the background takes effort. One small error of judgement in your outfit or accessories can stand out like a sore thumb, especially if the target is surveillance aware. Quiet and bland colours, change of hats, jackets, bags and shoes can all help to keep your anonymity whilst following someone for many hours.
