If you want it, too. :)
If you load down your cargo pockets with a large knife, a camera, bug dope and enough food to stock a 7/11, it probably should.
If you just wear running shorts and a t-shirt with some chap stick in the running short's small pocket, probably not.
Ultimately, it is up to you and your standards. Use some common sense.

On a short, bald, Mediterranean looking fellow? Well, it may not intimidate people, but the people will convulse with laughter.
