Most of the time I wear a CBST that I've trimmed down. I carry at the 1-2 position with a velcro backed belt and CB "velcro" cilps.
This method works great for almost any type of clothing that utilizes a belt. A shirt easily tucks, there is NO bulge on your hip, it's extremely comfortable and the "velco" clips COMPLETELY hide the evidence of CC.
I used to wear a "Smartcarry" almost exclusively. But, I like the increased accessibility that the CBST gives me. However, for "gym shorts"; "exercise wear" or "lounge pants", the "Smartcarry" is almost impossible to beat!
I received my CrossBreed QwikClip a couple of weeks ago & it handles a Polo tuck nicely with a canted Kel-tec PF-9 at 4:30. You have to work the shirt a bit to make it look natural, but it conceals well.
I expect that their SuperTuck Deluxe IWB holster would work well for the large to full-size pistols.

Think about it this way. I use the same slacks if I am only pocket carrying & I just pop the gun belt a notch tighter to make it fit & they do not look baggy at all.
The belt is an incredibly important part of the equation. It really does help more then I ever thought it would.
Beltman Belts are outstanding (my opinion) they arrive pretty timely, they will hold up for a looong time, and they are not going to cost you arm/leg/first born...

I worked the floor of a restaurant with a polo tucked into jeans with a full size 1911 in a Comptac C-TAC.
I also had a Crossbreed product. It was absolutely horrid.
The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

Ken Null's SMZ shoulder holster - unless your dress shirt is a see-through white model. I use one with a Walther PPK/s.
I think its a multi point answer thats needed.
If your on a job site you will be bending, squatting, walking and sitting, so you better make sure whatever you do will stay
hidden enough during all those activities.
I say IWB tuckable calls for a thin gun like a Kahr or Walther PPS, and a thin holster. Appendix carry is great for some, I am
short wasted and cannot pull it off. I would say a P229 is a pipe dream, but there are those that would disagree. If I am
spotted packing in CA, I loose my license to carry, so discretion for me is king. I think you need to buy a new gun, you can
thank me later.
You've described how I carry 90%+ of the time. I have a Comp-Tac MTAC that I wear tucked at about 4-o' clock. I can conceal a full-sized SIG P220 or P226 pretty easily that way.

The thing I really like about the High Noon clips is they loop around the belt and back up behind the belt. If you use as wide a belt as possible the clip doesn't stick down under the bottom of the belt as much as the clips that some other holsters use. These other clips always have a tab that sticks down, I guess to make it easier to unclip the holster. I don't have a problem with the High Noon clip. Just push finger in behind the belt next to the clip slide it forward so it's behind the clip and pull the clip out and over the belt. I'll take the little extra effort on unclipping to reduce the clip visability.
