    I sometimes carry a SA LW Compact. I wear shirts with the tails out most of the time. A good pancake holster like the I-BAK or similar holds the gun close to the body, and I have not had a problem concealing the gun.
    A difference is that the Commander has a full size grip as opposed to the Officers size in the Compact. The grip is the problem with a 1911 and concealment.

    It is important to get a cant that has the grip as much along the vertical axis of your body as reasonable. While the IWB would conceal better in some ways I find the OWB more comfortable and not a problem to conceal if I dress around the gun.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Best IWB I've ever purchased and I have two and getting at least one more. This is not just Kydex, it is leather lined. Just an amazing holster.

    Check out pureKustoms.com the Black Ops is both an IWB/OWB and has an adjustable cant. I wear mine with khaki's or cargo shorts and a t-shirt, polo or button down shirt with no problem. Plus, the turn around time is a lot shorter than most others

    I just ordered a holster from Tucker gun leather called "The Secret". Got a feeling this is going to be a nice holster.

    Here's another update.

    I got an email today saying that Nate at UBG holsters was requesting a payment, so I guess that means he will start making it soon!

    I'll post pics when it arrives...

    I carry a gov't 1911 easily under summer apparel. So your commander should be just as easy (the grip is the same size)

    If you are looking for a good OWB holster check out Mitch Rosen. I have models from his full detail and express line and they are my favorite. The express line models come in quick and they are just as high quality as the full detail models. The only difference is the looks.

    Recommending a Milt Sparks Summer Special II for a Colt Commander is like suggesting a leggy redhead wear a short skirt. It's a GREAT idea & I'm so GLAD I suggested it!
