    Men's Wearhouse is very gun friendly. You can go there with your gun and get measured with it on. they can add or move belt loops, add extra lining in the jacket and pants to protect them from getting shredded by rubbing against your gun. They do this work all the time and they are good at it. I wear my primary (Colt LWT Commander) OWB on a dress belt with an kydex insert by Looper Leather.

    Belly band with snubby J-frame or single-stack semi-automatic pistol high up on chest under left armpit, leave 2nd and third shirt buttons of dress shirt unbuttoned behind tie, tie solidly secured to dress shirt with a tie-pin or tie-tac down below the 3rd button. Suit jacket over all that. Reach through shirt front to access gun. Alternatively just leave shirt buttons buttoned and tear them off as you vigorously reach for the gun.

    Corrosion-proof handgun recommended.

    Hold your elbows close to your sides and your arms low when someone approaches you to hug you.

    Wear a dark colored dress shirt with lighter colored stripes (e.g. dark blue with white pin stripes) to break up the "printing" of the dark-colored handgun beneath the dress shirt.

    The easy solution is side pants pocket carry. I like FIST pocket holster in kydex for airweight Smith Jframe. You could carry one in each side pocket, as you have coat pockets for keys, etc. Could carry some speed loaders or speed strips in coat pocket for revolvers or loaded mags for semi auto.

    And you can take your coat off and still be concealed. How much firepower do you need?

    Suits present an opportunity for me.

    OWB pf-9, crossdraw sp101, and a derringer in the front pocket.

    I love to wear a sport coat, and wear suits sometimes. I carry at the 3:30 position the way I always do. I just don't remove my jacket. No big deal up here in MN as the heat and humidity aren't bad.

    used to carry in small of the back when wearing a suit coat.
