    I ain't never been accused of being a fashion plate.

    Actually, what you are calling a Camp Shirt I might be calling a Hawaiian shirt, as the cut is very similar. My Hawaiian shirts don't always have a "wild" print either.

    I I usually wear is an opened print shirt, or a larger T-shirt with a wife-beater underneath to keep leather away from the skin.
    Either option with the proper fit, easily covers the sidearm.
    If you've had too much pizza, of course your concealment may be a problem...buy 'bigger'.

    Stay armed...keep it concealed...stay safe!

    Here's what I consider my summer vibe. If you put on white dress or seersucker slacks and loafers, it goes out to a restuarant. Put on shorts, and you look good at the bar-b-que. Buy the proper fit, and you conceal nicely with a snug IWB like a Super Tuck.

    I like Nat Nast and Robert Graham shirts. Here's a Nat Nast:

    Printed or textured fabrics are better than plain, darker colors are better than light. clingy knits are not your friend.
    I also test drive everything in the fitting room with my carry weapon as well.

    For me I believe that the one size large polo option will work out. Sucks that they don't seem to make specialized carry attire for the under 50 demographic.

    +1 on camp shirts. Cabela's always has some in thier Bargain Cave section: Cabela's -- Short-Sleeved Shirts

    I recently picked up a couple of these from Duluth Trading Co., which I like a lot, though they are pretty heavy and will probably be too hot when it gets to July or August: Men's Short Sleeve Untuckable No-Polo w/Pocket - Duluth Trading Company

    I cruise by the local closeout/discount clothing stores once a month, too, and look for straight-hemmed work shirts, etc.

    I do fine in regulars, but some like to get the talls, which provide a little extra coverage, depending on one's build.

    I'm in AZ, and 8 months of the year it's light clothing. I carry mostly with belt (OWB) holsters, and either a full-cut dress shirt or a T-shirt one size larger than usual - both worn untucked - offer all the concealment I need. Darker colors are best because any lumps from the gun will appear as shadows on light-colored shirts. Remember, people don't expect you to be armed, so to 99% of the people you'll pass, a slight lumpiness or bulge under a shirt won't trigger seem unusual.

    I've dressed like this since I was 15 years old, so making the transition to concealed carry was a breeze for me, and I am able to wear OWB holsters with minimal printing. Only those who look hard enough will be able to tell something is under my shirt.

    IWB, I usually just wear a t-shirt.
    OWB, I will wear a t-shirt and any printed, button up shirt I have.

    Just remember to buy 1 size larger shirts and you are good to go.
