Default Concealment in business clothes

Looking for collective wisdom and experience and thank you in advance.

So if one wears business casual- a nice dress shirt (button down, long sleeves- or even a nice polo) kinda thing- with no sports coat or other over-garment (too hot);

-What's the secret for having a nicely tucked in shirt while CCW?

Seems to me its has to be all about the holster- please dish.

Don’t forget

Crossbreed has a seconds site. Returns or blemishes on the leather. Typically 1/2 price. It’s an easy way to see if you like their stuff

I usually wear an Ankle holster if not wearing a sport coat. I just can’t get the concealment I desire with a tucked in shirt.

Default Concealment in business clothes

For AIWB, Tier 1 Concealed holster with UtiliClips. You can buy the UtiliClips and replace the clips on your current holster instead of buying a new holster.

When in business clothes I carry a p2000sk in a sticky holster at 2:30, 45* cant so I can sit and stand with comfort. I can also get a deeper concealment with the sticky holster.

I carried a S&W 337 titanium cylinder .38 revolver for many years in business attire. I currently use a Bugbyte ankle holster. Very practical and quite secure. I have been wanded when using this form of carry without the gun being detected. Ankle carry sort of flys under the radar.

I carry AIWB too, but I admit the shirt is not tucked in smooth. I have a pretty flat stomach. But even when I didn’t carry just above the belt line if you do much the shirt pulls out some. I use this space to my advantage to hide the grip. No one notices except maybe someone who already knows I carry.

You beat me to it!

They clamp to your pants behind your belt.

But don't order the ulticlips from them. Get the Ulticlips XL. They are full size clips that can be used like you would use normal clips AND they can clamp on too.

I am assuming by now you have solved your problem, but if not you can e-mail me at arthur@packinfurdefense.com www.packinfurdefense.com or call me at (949) 528-7385 I run a concealed carry shop in Lake Forest California. I am more than happy to help, it's not that hard, but there are some details I need to know. Also what holsters have you tried and why are you satisfied with their performance. What type of gun are you concealing. A chat on the phone is the most productive method. You can ask people on the site about me. I know longer advertise on Calguns so I am no long free to respond in the open forum in a manner that may seem commercial.

Stay Safe

Bravo concealment with single belt clip. I try to use pattern dress shirts to help conceal.

I’m assuming you’ve received the answer you’re looking for. Grantar2 is spot on and 100% correct with his answer. It all depends on what handgun you own or willing to purchase AND practice with, how deep of a concealment you want or plan to carry and what your budget is. There are pros and cons to every carry option and limitations to every carry method.
I’ve been carrying daily some sort of handgun, sometimes 2 handguns, for almost 25 years. That’s 7 days a week in almost every attire, from swim wear to formal. I have so many holsters and tried just about every method of conceal carry. If you still have questions I’ll be happy to answer any questions. I’m pretty sure grantar2 has already given you the answers you need, but I can give you my personal experiences. PM me and I’ll send you my contact info.

Big fat guy with a 1911 here, so I ONLY carry OWB... but I use a Crossbreed Hybrid holster.


So I have no doubt, that if you're one of those disgustingly malnourished off-the-rack sorts, they'll make a GREAT IWB holster for you, too.

And eat a sammich while you're at it.
