I think so. I also think a higher riding holster is easier to conceal. I like a 15 degree or so forward cant; it helps hide the butt of the gun at the 3:00 or so position.

I prefer straight up and down, but I appendix carry a lot. I rarely carry further back than 3:00.

If my job was riding on me staying concealed, and I wore tucked-in shirts, I wouldn't wear any holster that showed a clip around the belt... unless I could totally conceal the clip with perhaps a phone case or something similar.

If that's how you insist on carrying, good luck.

I used to carry IWB only, now it's only OWB (when not tucked IWB/SOB) around 3:30- 4:00 and a 15 degree cant make for a more comfortable grip and draw for me. It does bring the grip closer to the body, thus concealing much better.

I like a forward cant myself also, carry @ about 4:30 and I think it conceals better and makes drawing easier for me.

Pocket carry a smaller gun perhaps then.

since I carry at 3:00, i have found that a zero cant is better. Sometimes I carry at 4:30 if im carrying a bigger gun. Approx 20deg seems to be a good fit.
Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it ......

Sorry it took awhile to respond, I got busy with work and such. Thanks for the offer, I live over here in Lancaster County.
