I wouldn't consider "wearing security or police t-shirts" to be "in uniform".

Not in uniform, maybe...

No doubt, but it would take more than a t-shirt and "I'm a cop" to get compliance, or deference of any kind, from me.

My response would be "Good, let me call your buddies over, we can have a party."

I have an Old Navy T-shirt. I wonder if people will still think I'm in the Navy?
