    Yeah, it seems EVEYONE has lived here at one time or another. I don't know who's crazier: The ones who leave or the ones who stay!

    Looks like multiple Men's Wherehouses are sited here. I wonder if it's a corporate thing. I'll have to try this in CT.

    I could guarantee if I found a place like that around here I would shop there, and I don't even wear sport coats. Congratulations on the nice find!

    Just wear it - the tailor should be able to do that easy.

    Men's Warehouse! No kidding? I get all my suits there. Even before I started carrying. I thought they were the best ... This is terrific!

    sisco, great signature!

    Another thing to keep in mind, is a lot of the sheeple will assume you're an off-duty detective/fed/etc. since your average gun-toting, frothing at the mouth redneck can't afford a suit.
    I have experienced this exact thing before. Before I went into the Air Force, I worked for two years doing private security at the ARCO (not Phillips 66 I think) building in Anchorage, AK. When I was in JCP, hey, at the time, it's about all we had in AK, but I explained to the dept manager ahead of time that I needed to get fitted with my gun on. He said, you APD? I said no. He said, you sure? Cause APD gets a discount on duty clothes. I was tempted to say sure, but I just went on with the measurements. We had issued shoulder rigs, and we were allowed in IWB / OWB backup if we purchased it ourselves.

    All this positive info regarding Men's Wearhouse has me feeling pretty good. I have to go in to get fitted for a tux soon. Sounds like I won't need to worry about leaving the rig in the truck.

    Wear it in, it is the best way to get a good fit. If they have a problem with the gun. As you can see from this thread you have other options
