"Carriable" boils down to your preferred firearm vs the level of convenience you value. Are you willing to dress according to the firearm you want to carry? Or would you rather carry something that works comfortably with any attire in any season?
I'm 6ft, 200lbs, and my build would probably fall into the thin/athletic category. I can carry my 5" 1911, BHP, or XDm45 (even bigger than a 1911) if wearing a jacket or the right layering. But I generally carry a micro XDs45. Why? Because I value the convenience of traveling light and wearing whatever I feel like.
It's simply a matter of preference. Carry something that meets your needs and performs well in your hands.
