    Anyone here wear Dragonfly shirts?

    I've been looking at Dragonfly shirts lately thinking they may be a good cover shirt of an IWB holster. I'm looking to find out how they run size wise. Should I buy my normal size, one size smaller, one size larger, or what? Thanks in advance for any help offered.

    Most Dragonfly button down shirts that I see are polyester. My experience with polyester, aloha, bowling, or guayabera shirts is they flap up too much in the breeze. For me, I find polyester does not conceal as good as cotton. In regards to sizing, I tend to wear my regular size, I have wide shoulders and shirts drape just right, I tried going up a size but the extra fabric would bunch up around the grip of my pistol and the extra length of the shirt tails got in the way of my draw, but that is just me, everyone’s body is different. When it comes to the size of cover garment you have to see what works for you.

    I've worn both and tend to like the cotton a lot better.

    I have three Dragonfly shirts, cotton-poly blend, if I remember correctly.

    I usually wear a size Large; for Dragonfly I have to go with an XL.

    Cool looking shirts too...

    Even Amazon has them...

    If these are what the OP is talking about. Lot's of places sell them. Most seem to be 100% poly, but Benny's (Amazon) are a 65/35 blend.

    If it isn't designed for concealed carry then usually you should order one size up. I guess it depends on how the size you normally wear fits you. If you normally wear your clothing a little on the snug side then definitely go one size up. If you tend to wear your clothing on the loose side then you may be able to stay with the size you currently wear. If you are in the middle between loose and snug fit then you may also want to go up one size. It also depends on the size gun you wish to conceal and where you IWB carry it. Now that I haven't really answered your question, time to try some on while wearing your carry rig to find out for sure.

    If you see me in one odds are I'm totin'. I ride a bike so I like some of the shirts. The interesting prints should help break up any potential printing from the gun as well.

    Thanks guys for the replies. I think I'll take the advice of most of you and stick with cotton clothes. It do get mighty warm down here at times.

    Those shirts would work out well if you looked like you belong on Monster Garage or work with Jesse James, but being a balding, fat, shaved headed white guy in his mid-30's, getting out of a station wagon, I think I would stand out like a sore thumb in a room full of hammers.

    Now what I wear today is what I have worn for the last fifteen years (Hawaiian prints), and has kind of become my signature. I am the only one in my tiny little circle of friends that is nuts enough to wear some of the prints that you can find. One of my buddies thinks I am nuts when I wear some of those shirts to work.

    I like the cottons too. The polys do tend to flap a little bit, but I have used fishing weights in the past to make the shirt hang naturally and not flag nearly as much.
