Protective coloration, or under cover, literally

It has not escaped my notice that some of my male co-workers who wearing kippot (yarmulkes, skullcaps) are not necessarily the most Orthodox of men.  One such co-worker bragged about the place he'd found that sells a slice of pizza for $1.  "Kosher pizza for $1?"  It's not kosher," he replied.  Another told me that his family eats in a sukkah on the first night and day only.  Even I eat in a sukkah more often than that!  I think it reasonable to assume that those men who wear kippot but aren't necessarily observant think that "passing" as Orthodox will serve them well in this Orthodox-sponsored organization.
