    I guess to start with. How do you dress? What is your usual selection of pants, shirt etc. Do you normally tuck in your shirts, or leave them loose untucked. Do you wear suits and ties to work or what.

    What type of work do you do, or are you retired? Our individual lives have a great deal to do with how we all carry.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I'm thinkin' an OWB holster not IWB but depending on your exact build, the "handles" might still push the grip away from your body and cause it to print. You're just going to have to try some on an see.

    Similar size and build here. I just picked up a Don Hume OWB for my 1911. It is the most comfortable holster I have found. Great ride and cant at the 9 o'clock position (i'm a lefty). Very little printing with a loose t-shirt.

    i wear loose clothing. Mostly tee shirts or Harley Mechanic shirts. The holster has to be comfortable when im on my scooter. I have narrowed it down IWB to 1) Cochise Defender 2) tucker Heritage, or the awnser.Might look at a supertuck
    Gonna look at some OWB holsters this week.

    There are two IWB that I really like M-Tac and Crossbreed Supertuck. Both are very comfortable and decently priced.Also the Dom Hume OWB holster are awesome. Hope you find something that works for you.

    Anything you listed will be great. You'll have to get used to it however. My first choice would be a Supertuck because if you wear it for 2 weeks and don't like it, they will refund you no questions asked. Can't get better than that. They don't have a very long wait either.

    I am close to your build. When I started carrying I was 6'2" 290. I have always carried with the Crossbreed supertuck. I normaly where untucked button down shirts and some T-shirts. Have no issues with it at all, even when I have to tuck in my shirt.
