You guys North of Florida have it easy
I can conceal my G19 under pretty much anything. I have a Galco IWB holster, belly band and OWB holster for a variety of carry methods. I can wear gym shorts and no shirt and conceal my G19.
I carry a G26 under a T shirt with no problems here in FL. I have noticed that the color or pattern of the shirt or T Shirt can make a big difference.
I wear a vest sometimes but it isn't a "Tactical" or "Photographer" vest. I wear Columbia or Northface vests similar the ones in this link Big and Tall Work Vests at Draft Horse Clothing Co.!
I'm an Analyst/Programmer. Dress code for my workplace is pretty loose, IT casual most of the time so I can usually go with IWB and an untucked shirt for my Warthawg or my Pro Carry II. For meetings where I need to dress more formally I wear CCW Breakaway trousers.
They are spendy but well worth the price. They hide any pistol I own (except my S&W 460), they look good, and they allow fast access to my weapon. This is a far better solution than the ankle holster I used to go with.
J.I.T. slide holster with either the LCR or PM9 at 2:30 or 3 oclock. I buy my T-Shirts a little larger than necessary so they are baggy/loose fitting. They cover just fine. Might print a little if I bend over or lean certain ways, but I don't care. If the weather is cool, tuck in the T-shirt and cover with a large/loose fitting henley or button up canvas shirt or jacket.

I use a Carhartt vest.
The inside pocket is perfect for a S&W snubbie

I bought an EOTAC coyote brown vest about a week ago for IDPA matches. Once I tried it on, I noticed that I could conceal every pistol I own (not all at one time) under this thing and it still looks good and is very comfortable. I have been wearing it ever since I took it out of the package and I don't think it screams "I have a gun!" so I just keep wearing it. It does look a little military-ish, but there are no ar15 mag pouches on it or stuff like that, just four large pockets all the same size. It may look a little weird since no one in Alabama wears a vest, but I like it and I'm going to keep wearing it. Plus EOTAC has gone out of business and I got it at more than half price. Score!!
