Concealed Carry Clothing
 
I am considering getting my license and am new to everything. Are there certain types of clothing to avoid when carrying concealed? I am asking because I like to wear comfortable athletic clothing alot in public and I'm concerned the weapon print or bulge would be noticeable even in an inside the waistband holster. Am I wrong? Would I have to make different clothing choices when I want to carry or does it not matter?

Learn to conceal your weapon in the cloths you normally wear--
A good IWB holster is 90% of concealment ;)

No need to change the way you dress. There is a wonderful selection of holsters out there. You'll just have to try them and see what works for you.
Me- Most days I use a Remora IWB holster and carry at my 1 o'clock. Not every one likes the Remora holsters but they work great for how I carry.
Good luck

Dockers, Tommy Bahama shirt and a Galco King Tuk or a CrossBreed Super Tuck.

Lots consider when deciding to conceal of course clothing/holster/how to carry among the rest. I like a Kydex material because it doesn't collapse when the weapon is unholstered. I wear an IWB at 4:00 under most types of pants (eg: dress, siut, jeans dockers etc). Depending on your build and the gun frame, you might need to go up a pant size to accomodate the thickness. I think most of us can say we a box full of holsters which looked good in the package but didn't perform the way we wanted them to. "Choose wisely grasshopper".

oh BTW. Don't wear a trench coat or safari vest in July. Great to conceal in the cooler weather. Sorta a give away in the summer.

A bulge is just a bulge as long as it stays concealed.

I didnt change my wardrobe when I started carrying, i carry a fullsize 1911 in a blackhawk serpa owb paddle. Usually a tshirt is enough to conceal my pistol but with some polo shirts i print a little.

I heard Hawaiian shirts are the next thing on the 'To be Banned' list. (Assault Loud Clothing Ban?)
