    TT Gunleather color suggestions?

    I finally placed my order with Tim the other day. It took me a while to do so, as I first talked to him in December. I was just hesitant to order for my Kahr P9, and didn't think the P9 was worth the 4 month wait time. I decided to get a Glock 19 and order the holster for it instead.

    I am not a fan of black belts, therefore, I ordered a 1 1/2" Med Brown belt. However, I ordered a black OWB single mag holder and a black Reinforced IWB holster. I decided to go with brown for the holster loops, that way if my shirt were to raise up high enough to show the belt, the black holster loops wouldn't stand out against the brown belt. I figured the black mag holder would be nice since the mags are black, and if the left side of my shirt were to raise up, an onlooker will only see a cell phone case.

    I'm wondering if I should just go brown with the mag holder and the entire holster instead. Opinions? Do you think all brown would be more or less likely to "suggest" the leather article is more than just a cell phone case, etc. Perhaps even with the black mag sticking out of the top of a brown mag holder, one might simply pass it off as a flashlight holder or something to that affect. No, I've never had a t-shirt raise up to show my belt in the past, but I'm trying to be smart about the color combo choice.


    Thanks.

    You are worrying WAY TOO MUCH.
    I don't really think it is going to matter.
    Go with your first instinct...or ask your wife!

    I have a two-tone set-up from Tim.




    A few more shots here:

    Personally, I like the look of two colors on the holster, even though I don't like it on guns.

    As far as "looking less suspicious", I would keep it monotone, whether that's black or brown shouldn't matter. I see people with brown or black phone cases, multi-tool pouches, etc. all the time.

    How many people total did you come into contact with today?

    What color belts were they wearing?

    What color were their respective shoes?

    Very few people ever notice or remember anything at all unless there is a conscious reason for them to pay attention to something specific.

    Do you carry open or concealed? If concealed, it doesn't matter what color since no one sees it.

    I disagree. You see it every day, and it should be pleasing to your eye.

    I agree to a point. If you carry concealed, would you walk around with a pink or purple belt, mag holder, and holster?

    That's why I don't like the black belt. Black belts just look goofy to me unless I'm wearing slacks and black dress shoes.

    I was just getting too much into the function part of the color choice. The chances of the left side of my shirt raising and exposing my mag holder are slim to none. Same as the right side and exposing the holster loops of the IWB holster. For some reason I thought a black holster and black mag holder would be better. I've since changed my mind and have gone brown on everything.

    Did you get OWB or IWB for your P229? I have one of those generic 3-slot OWB pancake holsters with the hammer snap that I bought from a gunshop for my P229. Obviously I'd like to replace it.

    I go with black for my carry items, mainly for 2 reasons,
    1) black seems to go with more colors than brown
    2) most accesories, cell phone holsters, multi-tool holsters etc are black and will "blend in" with the rest of the public, should something end up partially uncovered.
    If I'm trying to blend-in with the general public I dress like the general public. Sheep don't notice much, but something different may stand out a bit more.
