    Find a big and tall store in your area and buy a shirt made for someone 6'5" or 6'6". I have a friend about your size and this is exactly what he does for everyday clothes. I'm sure it would work for OWB.

    Personally, I think you should look into a better holster for what you typically wear for a shirt. This may alleviate some of your concerns. You did not specify what you carried and what holster you're currently using. Granted.....the clothing may be your least costly replacement at this time. But it all works together my friend. If you can't find an answer in the clothing department, there's a couple of other things to consider. Don't shoot the messenger. Giving you my best.

    RamRod are you saying a holster for owb? I have decided this is my preferred way to carry. I have been spoiled this summer carrying the P3AT with a High Noon pocket holster. I am embarrassed to admit the holsters I have tried use for IWB and OWB. Oh and I will mostly be carrying the SR9C with some 709 tossed in now and again.

    Big and tall section and tall clothes are your friend. I buy the XLT's and get the shirt tails down to the bottom of my pockets. Prints, Hawaiians, dark T-shirts.

    Never be embarrassed about anything. Spoiled? I kind of know what you mean actually. I got outside my box this summer too. High Noon makes great holsters for the price and excellent support. We have a couple (wife and I).
    Yes......(if I'm understanding you correctly)....OWB holster. That's what you want right? The P3AT? Why not? Could be the pocket holster you wear outside of the pants or tucked in between your belt and body. You know.......thing is.......I personally think you're reading way more into carrying concealed that what you are willing or able to do at this time. Lot's of folks get 'grounded' with the idea and they won't easily adapt because they loose their focus. It makes no matter what your physical characteristics are. You want to carry, and then you shall. Nothing should stand in your way.

    Can you get a shirt at big & tall that is less big and more tall? I wear an XL for my body which covers just okay if I stretch them down a tad. Then I bought a 2XL and immediately washed it in hot water. The length is good but the armpits hang way down.

    I am 5'7" and 220 lbs. I wear a XL shirt and sometimes they are a little short. I use an OWB holster and I really don't bother if I print or it shows a little. Been carrying for years with no problem.

    I'm 5'9" and I've had my share of busicuits and gravy. I like a good old fashioned tacky short sleeve button up flower covered Hawaiian shirt (Magnum PI, the later years....much later...like bursitis, bald, beer gut, and no Ferrari later). The tackier the better. The best cover shirt I've ever found for summer. I bought them at Wal Mart at the beginning of summer and they were cheap too. Even if they only last one summer, I still did ok. I've been carrying a Ruger P95 (and they're not small by any stretch) and you can't even begin to see it. The colors and patterns break up any shapes. I used to think the P95 was too big to carry concealed...not so much anymore. I actually like carrying it. Might do so more often. Will I be taking it too far to wear them in the dead of winter with snow on the ground?

    I'm 5-7 and am a bit portly. I buy L or XL golf shirts, which I wear out, not tucked in. This conceals my IWB mustang very well. While
    travelling, I wear a button down hawaiian shirt out, and a Uncle Mikes super slide holster with a 9 MM which is not compact. Its not noticible, but has a bit more firepower.
    Try going to the Salvation Army or simular charity thrift stores. I find shirts there for $5-10. Hey, I'M saving some $$$ and helping a worthwhile charity.

    I don't think anyone knocks you for shopping at the Salvation Army. I shopped at the Goodwill Store last week and found 4 nice shirts in my size with the original store price tags still attached. Price - $3.00 each. I used to haunt the thrift stores when I worked plainclothes. I have bought new sport coats for $7.00. People buy clothes and gain or lose weight without ever wearing them. Some wind up in the thrift shops.
