Definitely never done that, no need for you to do it either, G26 conceal very easy

It will take a while for your brain to comprehend that people don't see what you can feel (hopefully). Always a good idea to give your self a look in the mirror when you get dressed so you can see what others see. I wear my G26 both IWB (Kholster) and in a SmartCarry when I REALLY need to hide it. Plus you should change up how you carry (positions, level of cant, etc) to find the most comfortable and hides the best for you. I find at 3:00-3:30 my G26 hides best when bending or twisting.
See this is the problem I had with this method of concealment is the only way I see it being possible is if your letting your BVD's stick WAY to much out of your pants. If your going to dress like a hood you might want to NOT carry since the police are likely to give you a very close scrutiny and then they will see the bulge of your gun. Sounds like a good way to get a face plant.
I'm not trying to take a cheap shots at LEO here, just saying look like a hood, get treated like a hood.
I actually wear Perry suspenders under my cover shirt to prevent the weight of my glock 27 from pulling my pants down and revealing my tighty whiteys. If your waiste band is showing you may want to consider a pair of suspenders. On another note there are several threads that mention using the waiste band of the underwear to cover the grip when going to the bathroom in a public restroom. I do this myself.
It doesn't work with my string thong.

I really think this is a great place to learn alot about how why and when to carry. I hope you continue to ask questions and that you don't get scared off by all the jokester here. For the most part everyone here really does want everyone to be succesfull in their CCW experience.
Also congrats on the choice of Glock for your carry. It's nice to see someone else that "drank the koolaid"
I still am speechless. However, after reading the replies of some of my fellow members, I am concerned.

Why are people so concerned about being made or printing?
I vote not to do it. If you need the gun, you want it NOW, without an extra layer of clothing over it.
Do not worry about it, with almost everyone carring a iphone or regular cell on their belt, nobody pays attention to a buldge in the wasteline any more.
I carry IWB or pocket, with the shirt out. Covers it well.
In my home state of MA, you are almost guaranteed to loose your permit, or have the concealed part removed via restriction if that happens.
