    I carry a full size 1911. In the summer, I generally carry IWB, but I have carried OWB under a T-shirt that is 1 size larger than normal without a problem printing. My favorite OWB holster is a Galco Avenger with a GOOD gun belt. The belt is the key to comfortable concealed carry. And now that the weather is cooling considerably, it is easy to conceal under a flannel shirt, vest, and/or jacket. And OWB is more comfortable than IWB, by far!

Open jackets don't seem to me they would conceal very well at all. Insight from some who are making this work please.
    If you live in a colder climate, a good quality tall-sized sweatshirt works wonders. Or, try a vest. I have a Domke photo vest I wore for many years as a photojournalist, and now that I'm retired and disabled, it works great as a way of carrying things like spare mags, tactical lights, cell phone, note pad and pen, aspirin, and hiding even a large handgun. I also have an Coronado Leather vest that is fantastic for just about any occasion, and I even have an old-west style vest that, when worn with jeans, work boots and a cowboy hat, looks completely natural.

    Larger shirts will fix the problem...

    I carry my G27 in a Galco SOB at 4:30, easy to conceal.

    I carry a Keltec PF9 in a Fobus paddle holster 99.5% of the time...if I must deep conceal I usually switch to a .380 and an Uncle Mike's IWB soft holster.....I just wear untuck Tee shirts and polos all the time....if I must tuck in, then I pocket carry the .380...but that ain't very often, thank goodness!!.....LOL

    I sometimes carry a 3" SP101 OWB in a Simply Rugged Silver Dollar Pancake. I like it so much I'm looking into a similar holster for my G19. I generally don't wear the SP101 unless it's cool enough for a flannel shirt or sweater, but have worn it under just a tshirt a few times and it worked very well.

    I too carry the G 27 and still struggle with a OWB holster. Seems there are always compromises to be made.
    With winter coming on, I wanted a retention holster.
    Just purchased the ITAC Roto-holster. I like it and I don't.

    Pros: Solid feel..easy draw...secure..comfy
    Cons: Leaves some print

    Because it is a adjustable "rotary holster", the added mechanical piece that accomplishes this causes it to print more. (See attached photos)

    I don't always like to wear a belt. This holster MUST be worn with a belt, otherwise it will "lean" outward. (See Photos)

    Tee-shirt with this holster? No way.
