Hello! I’m Jan Wolbrecht, the creator of Incognito Wear IX. I’m a Georgian native and grew up in a horse family. In a family of all girls, I was hands on helping my dad to fix whatever the horses broke. I guess it was no surprise that I’d become an “creative problem solver”.
Shortly after college, I found work as an Interior designer for a home builder. Within a few years, I became a military spouse and understood that home was where the military sent you and began a family.
About 9-10 years later, I found myself struggling as a single mom with 3 young children far from home. My family helped me move back (to Georgia) and offered lots of support. Ten years later, through family connections, I was blessed to find my current husband. He exposed us to more of the great outdoors—fishing, hunting, and shooting. Little did I know that those first encounters with guns would become a major role in my life story.
It was around 2013, when my husband and I began noticing a lot more of “petty crime” stories being reported in our local news and a lot of the crimes occurring in “good areas” of town.
I became very frustrated, and empathic for these hard-working individuals having their goods stolen. The single mom in the grocery store whose wallet was stolen out of her purse. The elderly couple beaten up for a few bucks. My neighbor who nearly had her purse stolen but got a black eye instead. These thieves gave no consideration to the effect of their actions on those they were harming – these criminals seemed so conniving, lazy and selfish! Ugh! I was so mad!
I thought – if only the they (innocent victims) could fight back, defend themselves from those who desire to cause harm.
That’s when it hit home. My husband bought me a pistol for self defense.
He taught me the basics of how to shoot and I got professional training. It’s important to understand, know and exercise gun safety rules, and your local gun laws.
It was in these classes that I heard others speak of how they carry a firearm for protection on a regular basis – no matter where or what they’re doing. This is called concealed carry – concealing a firearm or device for protection under clothing so it’s not visible to the average person.
The more I learned, the more I became (very) conscious of how to dress. I felt as if my firearm plainly showed through whatever I was wearing (called printing). It seemed to me that “concealed” carry wasn’t an effective form of protection when it was obvious to others, I was hiding a firearm under my shirt.
After staring into my closet with nothing to wear to conceal my firearm, I wondered how many others (women in particular) must feel this same way! I searched online and was only able to find tactical clothing for women – but I wasn’t wearing that for every day or to work.
In an effort to help others with this challenge; I began to think outside the box for ways to solve this dressing dilemma. There’s got to be a way to discreetly carry (a firearm) with casual, fashionable clothing that was also functional. Clothing that would camouflage (minimize printing) and give you access to your device without “undressing” in public and in an instant.
This was the beginning of a clothing line idea, but I wasn’t sure where to start. I came up with a name for my business, Incognito Wear IX, because if you’re carrying; you want to be incognito. And I had a symbol, an owl- wise, observant (big eyes), and hides in plain sight!
But was this God’s plan for me? I turned to my faith for guidance, direction and clarity.
Several months later, on a remarkable day in December of 2014, I see a big bird flying pretty low within 40 feet of us and lands on a tree trunk. My girlfriend didn’t see it flying but I stopped her to say, “there’s a hawk”.
Suddenly, I realized it was an OWL! – and about 3’-0” from the ground! Out of nowhere, on a beautiful, sunny day, God put an owl (my symbol for Incognito Wear IX®) on the side of a tree trunk and starred at me! How incredible Awesome and exciting!
In broad daylight, this well camouflaged and silent creature who hunts under the cloak of night, showed itself to me. The Lord answered my prayer. I received it loud and clear. With renewed courage and spirit, I bring you Incognito Wear IX®.
I hope you like it!

P.S.S. Designing clothing to help others gain confidence to carry on body – Get the firearm out of the purse & on the person.
