I have also used the Under Cover Comfort shirt holster with a XD 45 and it worked well. He may have to wear slightly looser pants and / or shirt depending on how he dresses.
    +1 on the UCC holster shirt. But not all holster shirts are created equal.

    Check out the thread with video from FedwifaSig.

    Starched Wranglers are WAY too tight for pocket carry!

    I'm about his size.

    Tell him to suck it up and quit being such a Nancy.

    As it has been said, concealed carry is about compromise, and in most cases a wardrobe adjustment will have to be made.

    Trial and error, and get the correct gun.

    I just had this conversation with a buddy of mine regarding his IWB with his new CZ 40. He was whining about the belt cutting into his opposite hip, so he only carries every other day at best. I told him to carry a spare mag on the opposite hip, get a gun belt (for the 10th time) and it will take time for his body to get used to it (my wife pointed out to me the other day that my 4 o'clock hip now has a pistol grip shaped "dent" in it).

    I am 5' 15", 165# and I still need to keep a folded washcloth between my waistband and my hip on the magazine side for the same reason, my work pants have a high waist band that hits right at the top of my hip bone.

    When I was young and skinny (yes, that long ago!) I dressed in a similar manner.
    Had I a young man's profile still (which I don't, alas!) I would go IWB strong side, handle to the rear, with a vest.
    Your friend dresses Western and a vest enhances the look, plus it provides more pockets, which are always handy.

    Folks

    This is a serious thread. It's not posted in Humor & Off Topic.

    The member is asking serious carry questions and looking for educated answers regarding how best to carry for a specific mode of dress.

    The thread is getting too off topic with totally off topic comments.

    Sorry...but, I have to clean it up.

    When I have to go the neat & trim - I wear chest band with a thin firearm. My choice is a Kel-Tec PF9 for this setup. Although I can usually get away with carrying a Glock 27 in this set up. We all make sacrifices for various dress methods. With a button down shirt will hide the seams where the velcro fastens on the chest band nicely. I would wear this on top of any under shirt.

    Thanks for all the helpful comments. I spoke with my friend yesterday and he is looking forward to all the constructive and helpful comments. He even mentioned losing a few pounds, which would help in the concealment of his weapon.

    Keep the ideas coming. Thanks

    Wrangler Cowboy Cut

    13MWZ are the same jeans I wear daily, along with boots (although my jeans aren't usually starched). A comfortable and easy method of carry is to insert the handgun into a Desantis Nemesis holster or equivalent and tuck it inside the boot.

    No change in wardrobe is necessary but you probably won't be able to walk long distances and the draw may take some practice. My Glock 19 is a little tight with the jeans pulled over the boot.

    When the weather is cooler I use a belt holster and a sport coat as cover garment.

    I think that if one is committed to carrying, wardrobe changes are required considerations. I am tall and heavy (but doing well on reducing -- ) and went from a tucked in to an outside hang for my shirt. It's of little concern up here in winter, because bulky, cold weather clothes hide a "multitude of sins", but in summer, it's an oversized long tailed shirt that seems to do the trick.

    Other considerations would be his work and social settings which might require a "dress code", but personal preferences in clothing can be adapted to the realities of CCW.

    How about a J-frame or Seecamp carried ITS (Inside The Stetson)?
