    Do you buy clothes based on their CCW-worthiness?

    I bought something today that I haven't had in years: shorts. I've never been too fond of them (except on women ), but it happens to be HOT out there. I've also been riding 2.9 miles with my boys every day on my bicycle and them on their Razors.

    Anyway, while I was trying them on, I had the presence of mind to make sure that I could slip a hand down between the shorts and my hip. That's to make sure my M&P can ride somewhat comfortably IWB.

    So it made me think...I can't possibly be the only one that does this when buying clothes.

    Discuss!

    Most everyone that I know dresses with their CCW in mind.
    Speedo's are not recommended for CCW carry, unless you are carrying a 6 inch N frame S&W wesson in .44 mag

    Yes, I keep IWB/CC in mind when buying clothes.

    Cool Absolutely !

    Most of the time I wear Tommy Bahama shirts and a pair of shorts and I make sure that the waists is 1" wider to accept the HighNoon Public Secret holster and the G-23. If I need to be a little dresser I wear the 5.11 Summer Comfort shirts and long pants with again a 1" wider waist. The shirts are my regular size and have ample room to cover and not print the CCW.

    Sure do. Usually square bottom shirts worn untucked. Different waist size in pants for OWB vs. IWB.

    I thought we all bought our clothes based upon their worthiness for concealed carry?

    While I don't favor the "Tactical Timmy" clothing, I do look for clothes that are functional for concealed carry.

    I do but I don't make a big deal over it. Pretty much make sure my IWB will fit fine and that pretty much does it for me.

    Would not CCW if I didn't. Clothes make the man (or lady) when it comes to carrying.
    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    Sometimes. I have some clothes that I wear when I am going out with my friends for a night on the town or whatever (and I don't carry for those, because I usually have a few adult beverages), some of those don't lend themselves to concealing. But my everyday clothes do, so I really have my "going out" clothes, and my everyday/ccw clothes.

    Sorry. I am laughing my butt off. I didn't know anyone else did this. Not only do I do EXACTLY the same thing but I look at clothes and buy, or reject them, based on which firearm will work best.
