When it comes to concealing your firearm, the type of clothing you wear is just as important as the firearm itself. To properly hide your firearm while you're wearing it, opt for a shirt with a holster, a polo shirt or a buttoned belt. The classic hidden carrying case is an unbuttoned flannel or denim shirt, with long or short sleeves, whichever you prefer, that provides a cover and allows the use of an IWB cover or a high-traction OWB cover. It looks presentable and is a great option for those on a budget. A specific concealed carrying belt is also essential for supporting the weight of the firearm and holster.
Without it, you'll find yourself constantly adjusting your pants and feeling restless. While wearing it concealed is easier in pants, that doesn't mean it's not easy in other clothing styles as well. Weapons designed specifically for concealed carry tend to be smooth and stylized. Natural fabrics like cotton, wool and silk are great options for concealed carry because they provide structure and breathability while still concealing the firearm. When it comes to style, striking the right balance between distracting the view of the passerby and reducing the impression of the firearm is key. A heavier frame can help compensate for a smaller charger and won't alter the concealment in most types of cases.
Shoulder covers are often best for people who need to be discreet but don't need to effectively disguise the fact that they carry a gun. Silk shirts are also great for concealed carry because of their structure, breathability and ability to cover the body.
