Carry clothing
Carrying concealed shouldnt mean you have to throw all practical clothing out the window.

Oversized clothing, cargo pants, a Hawaiian shirt, fanny pack & a vest? No thank you.

Being a skinny guy, I wear fitted clothes, and finding the ideal carry spot is a bit tricky. Thankfully slight printing and the occasional unintentional visual of your firearm isn't so much a problem in Florida anymore.

I've been doing a lot of research lately looking into the ideal way for myself, I have a belly band that I like and is comfortable and accessible when I carry at 4-5 position. I am also considering a crossbreed (liking the fact that they are a Christian company).

Any other practical suggestions? Thank you! God bless!

The only thing I have to be cautious of is certain shirts, some of mine are a bit too small to wear when carrying certain guns. It also depends on where you carry. If I carry AIWB, I can wear whatever I want with no concerns of printing whatsoever.

Im a very skinny guy. I carry my LC9 in a Tommy Thies IWB holster. Its pretty much like the crossbreed but its wider so it spreads the wieght out more. I can carry like this in any clothing. Now when I carry my fullsize CZ-85 in the same type of holster yes a cover shirt is always rquired.

It does depend on what you carry as to can carry sometimes. Skinny guy and a full sized pistols dressed normal. NO A compact ,3 1/2" barrel shortr grip, about anywhere you deside to realyl try. DO NOT buy the carry crap clothing or bags and such. That stuff just screams I carry. Buy a normal cloths just maybe a size larger in the pants. For a holster if a crossbreed is your style then give a look at Comp-Tac . Better quality with many choices . I have a monotaur neutral that is very nice and yes I did the crossbreed first. Not hard to compare side by side and you tube has some videos doing so.

In honesty I just make sure my firearm stays out of immediate view. I don't worry about printing etc. I could be wearing a snuggie and people are still gonna look at me and assume I'm armed in some way. I just make sure you can't tell how well I am armed.

If you really worry about a "wardrobe" to carry you're either overthinking it or paranoid or don't need to be carrying - just my 2 bits-
