Had a similar issue, wearing a red "686" Jacket at a resort where the Patrol wore Red. The Guy was obviously in the mood to bust balls. He asked me in the future to not wear red to avoid confusion. I explained, I wore red for safety reasons and pointed out "a fashionable" snow bunny dressed in all white. After it took him 30+ seconds to find her camouflaged in the snow, He understood my point and let me be.
