I like to view that as how to use the disguise skill in ways other than just putting on a costume.
Some of the explanations I've seen basically boil it down to the fact that Clark has exceedingly different mannerisms- slight stoop, slouched shoulders, passive tone of voice, etc. Not the stance one would expect from someone that could benchpress the entire building. So he eventually boils it down to "Don't you look like George Clooney?" with the facial features, which he can play down with the glasses.
That and the fact that he vibrates his face when people take his picture, so that people can't just compare the still pictures.
There was a comedy skit (I don't remember where) that revealed to Superman's shock that he had never fooled anybody. They just respected him so much that they just went along with not mentioning Superman when he was Clark Kent to give him a sense of privacy. LOL
Seriously though, I think his disguise is somewhat believable because it sort of happened to me. While I was away at vacation, I shaved my beard, got a haircut, starting wearing contacts, and dropped a few pounds. When I came back to work, the security guard and co-workers didn't recognize me.
