The Cubavera shirts can be found at the department stores (Macy's etc) between $55-100, however you can find them at Marshall's and steinmart from $12-30.

    As a cover jacket/vest, I use a Israeli bodyguard jacket. I really like it as it does not look tactical and it's length and fit has been perfect for concealing any gear on my belt. When ordering one, order one size up as they tend to run smaller than we are accustomed to.
    I like Cubavera shirts, especially those 100% Rayon...most comfortable shirts I have ever worn. I am 6'3" 240 lbs. In between sizes of XL and XXL shirt. The larger shirt is more comfortable and hides weapon well. The smaller shirt hides weapon and has a more trimly appearance. I buy my shirts at http://www.cubavera.com/ . They frequently have sales. Sometimes they don't have a complete line of sizes. This style is not for everyone but if you wait for a sale and like the style you should be happy.

    An aside: I originally used the link function but this hijacked the link to a different site! What's up with that?

    Love: Levi 505 jeans, one size larger than I'd wear without a gun IWB, button down collared shirt (typically plaid) or polo shirt, and my locally made leather gun belt.

    Hate: anything else.

    [QUOTE=Hammerhead7;2203853]Interesting plethora of opinions...

    And to answer the question about "Do BAD really guys really give a hoot about what I am wearing, and why should I even care?" I can answer that with some stories of my PSD days, being posted on my blog Soon. I think it will change your way of thinking.



    Ive worked the last 20 years in a large jail, and can say without a doubt that BGs do watch what you wear. Most of it is to see if you have something they can get, But they also size people up and decide if they think they can take people. They are also very aware of what gun carriers look like. And are least likely to bother people who are aware of there surroundings. DR

    When I need to be dressed up I am a huge fan of the Guyaberra shirt. Here in FL, I get away with the slightly Latino style of them, and its the only dress shirt that looks good untucked. They were made for concealed carry. If it's cooler out I use an open Hawiian shirt or similar over a t shirt.

    Other than those I get away with an untucked t shirt or polo shirt.

    An over size shirt or a Fishing vest works great where I live in a small Rural country town. So it is common to see guy's wearing fishing vest all of the time etc.No one is concerned about who is packing etc.most of the town's residents are CCW holders any way.

    Good grief. I avoided the 5.11 vest for years due to mall ninja stigma, but I recently bought one. This thing is sweet. IRL, it doesn't look nearly as mall-ninja-ish as I had thought it would. It covers my appendix OWB rig perfectly, and it can hold a metric ton of stuff besides.

    Though I am still waiting for a few more days for me ccl to come in the mail. The plan is iwb t-shirt, botton up shirt over that (that is my normal dress tbo). However I have found a pretty sweet motorcycle vest for when I ride in the warmer weather that has to cc pockets on the inside. I have checked it out in my home (as I don't have my ccl atm) and a full size hg fits perfect and doesn't print. Xelement Men's 10 Pocket Premium Black Leather Vest is the vest there. this website doesn't really discuss it but bikerden does. In the provided link you can see in the third photo there ie a out of place large snap to the left of the zipper. That is the cc area which is located on both sides.

    for those of you who are interested it is a very comfortable, durable, and I wouldn't say light but very far from heavy. Also all the pockets are super convienent. extra mags, knife, whatever you want to throw in them. I put my ipod in one of the inside pockets,holds perfect.

    My normal attire is: Cargo/tac pants or jeans, t-shirt w/ unbuttoned shirt over it, or a polo (tucked or untucked depending on the occasion).

    I do own a vest, but it's hardly what I would call a "shoot me vest." It's a Carhartt work vest with a sherpa lining. I wear it this time of the year when the temps fluctuate between the high 40's and 70's. The morning can be a little chilly, but you can wear the vest throughout the day and not be sweating when it gets warmer. I've actually had people compliment me on this vest and another Carhartt jacket I have saying they look "dressy". I have several different Carhartt coats and they are some of the most durable and warmest I have ever owned.

    Vests make great cover garments for concealed carry and in my neck of the woods are normal attire for many people. As for the "shoot-me-first" vests, say what you will about them those things are very functional.

    How about the guy I saw in Mexico (at a resort) wearing the black tshirt with "POLICE" written across his back...

    I asked where he worked, and he explained that a friend gave him the shirt to wear. I explained that he might not want to wear his fancy shirt outside the resort, or he'd likely end up as fish food... Some friend, sheesh

    You're welcome. I get most of my Carhartt stuff from Cabela's. They also have their own private label stuff made similar that I've also has good luck with.
