As they say in Hawai'i, speak softly, and wear a loud shirt. Mine are Kahalas, Bishop Street, and Torrey Richard.

Some women buy a lot of shoes and handbags. I buy a lot of holsters.

(Fred- yer not gonna wear the 640 with THAT, are you? )

Really, it depends on what you carry, and what you wear. I might go for a medium framed auto with an IWB when I am wearing a suit- or a simple Uncle Mike's and Mdl 36 S&W when I am wearing cargo shorts.

Whatever you wear, it should always do a good job of RETAINING your weapon. Dropping your piece on the floor of the restaurant is considered very gauche, and WILL get you talked about.......

I love those Tommy Bahama shirts. I hate the price tags though. I didn't change any of the clothes I wear, I just got a more concealable gun than my glock. It printed real bad on me given my relatively small size (6'2 170) But my P938 doesn't print at all

Patterned shirts conceal better than solid-colored ones.

FWIW, for all you mainlanders, two main branches of real Hawai'ian shirts-

Daytime- business wear- cotton, REVERSE PRINT. Bright stuff is inside, outside has gentle somewhat faded look (sort of like madras fabric after a few washings)

Evening- dress up- SILKIES. Made of silk or similar synthetic, bright colors OUT. Buttons made of coconut shell.

ALL Hawai'ian shirts are worn tails out. Comfortable, can be pressed, never starched. REALLY good with an IWB.

Where I get mine? Same place locals do. Sears. Windward Mall over in Kaneohe. Why, bodder you? A GOOD Hawai'ian shirt is not cheap, yes, you can order on line.

Matty T For get all the tacti-cool clothing . Assum that soon as you start wearing some tacti-cool clothing ever one you know will see the difference in how you dress. It more about what you do normaly , how you dress ever day as to what you can Conceal. i have a 26" waiste son-inlaw that can conceal under a tucked in t shirt a KT P11 I carry a cw kahr. with a tucked in shirt. Good holster the right handgun and common sence with clothing will do. No more tight cloths . One size larger, a bit looser shirt as all you need.

I wear shirt and shorts everyday also ride my longboard around town gun never shows a ruger sr40c iwb tagua leather holster 8 oclock (left handed) I like it because no matter what gun I'm carrying though latley its the ruger it works well and is not bulky at all though I did go up one size from 36 to 38 just cause with my gun the 36 is to tight
