    MTAC or Black Ops. Both great choices.
    And the old man said, "We'll see..."

    I use a Cross Bread Super Tuk. I got it first to carry a full-size Taurus 1911. I had it under a dress shirt and tie. Wore it to church. Never got made. (I have a couple of police officers in my church, neither had any idea). I now carry a Rock Island Arms compact tactical. That holster is THE MOST comfortable holster that I have EVER used. And I have not been made.

    I just ordered one and cant wait for it's arrival. I will carry either a 3 or 4" Kimber with it but then again I know I'll be able to carry a 5" with it as well if I wish.

    I currently carry with a Bianchi 100 Professional Holster which I had a little trouble with the safety turning it's self off but moving it farther back on my side seems to have cleared that up. Overall not a bad holster especially for 45.00 and it is comfortable but I'm still looking forward to the Super Tuck.

    I haven't taken pictures with the MTAC and Kimber 5" yet but, here are some old ones with a XD45C. I find that the butt of the 1911 pulls in tighter than the XD does.

    You have specifically requested dress shirt and slacks, so unless you also wear a coat, your only option is a tuckable holster.

    Both my Black Ops Pro and MTAC work well with slacks and a golf shirt. My dress shirts are a little longer and I have found it is a problem tucking them in behind the clips or loops and not having the dress shirt blouse to much. I am thinking about having some of my shirts altered to have that tucked area cut away some and hemmed. It would likely only cost a few dollars at an alteration shop.

    A lot of pictures shown on this thread will not work without a coat or untucked shirt. There has to be room between the clips or loops attached to the belt and the holster and the amount af shirt that can be tucked is determined by how far down the holster those clips or loops are connected.

    The Black Ops Pro has the convenience of also being able to wear it OWB when you do wear a coat. For most, OWB is much more comfortable than IWB.

    1911's work well with an MTAC as long as it isn't a GSR. The SIGs are not standard 1911 slides. My 3" Kimber works very well IWB in the MTAC. 1911's are thin and lenght doesn't matter much, just adds a little weight.
