    When I lived in Florida, my daily work clothes were: cargo shorts, tee shirt and hiking boots. Underneath the tee was either a 5" 1911 or a Glock 17 riding in a Max-Con V, and a mag pouch on the weak side.

    So long as you use a good IWB design, and make sure that your tee shirt is not skin tight (and preferable a dark color) you're good to go with most small to mid sized handguns. You will not be able to pack around a Beretta, Sig or USP quite as easily due to their size, but with a 1911, Glock, Kahr, XD or similar sized firearm, you'll be fine. A proper belt is also a "must" to achieve the maximum level of concealment out of your holster. Good luck!
    Off Topic but I am looking forward to my Maxcon VI IWB. I am doing well with my Don Hume OWB but I can see that a good IWB rig is going to be much easier to conceal. I am wearing a light weight vest now with a magazine in both front bottom pockets to hold it from blowing open. It works well and I have enough ammo on me at any given time for a small war.
