Nope, you don't need pecs for the Truss.
One thing I forgot to mention about the Deep Concealment: The large goes up to a 44" chest, and the extra large is from 45" +. The extra large is really big. So if you are around a 44-45" chest, you have 2 choices:
1) a too tight large, or
2) a too loose extra large
There is no overlap between the sizes. If you are around 44-45", those are your choices.
You mentioned being hot due to the extra material of the Truss. A well-fitting Truss is much more comfortable than an ill-fitting Deep Concealment, even in warm weather. Deep Concealment really needs to add another size between the L and the XL, and then rename the sizes accordingly.
And ontuza, I'll agree with you again about accessibility in a car. Other than a dedicated car gun and holster, a shoulder holster is my favorite way of carrying in a vehicle: quick and discrete.

I'll be facing a similar situation in a few months. Figure I'm gonna give the supertuck with m&p compact a go...but I'm still going to get a pocket pistol when I start work full-time. Either a j-frame or small auto(kel-tec or LCP).

Hmmm I guess Im the only person here who can get myself on a schedule so that I only have to do the #2 thing when Im at home.
I find that fascinating! LOL
Check out the Stubbs, awesome sandwich and I also eat the "Texas Tailpipe" which is a 1/2 Lbs hot dog smothered in chili and cheese and I add Tabasco and jalapenos to mine.
You might want to consider a Kahr PM9. It could work in one of those undercover security shirts, a smart carry, a belly band and (although I don't recommend or like them) a tuckable and it would be easier to tuck and keep tucked. It's flat with only one control (slide release) and it's very very narrow (under 1"); even better than a short barrelled 1911 for concealability.
You'll hear a lot of good and a lot of bad about the PM9's. I believe they started out life a bit rough but I feel they're a top notch choice. I have two kahrs, the P9 and the MK9 and they've both been perfect and the accuracy and trigger quality are simply outstanding.
They aren't cheap but I believe they're worth the money.
