    Blue Jeans???

    I wasn't sure where to post this, so if it's in the wrong spot I apologize. Mods feel free to move it.

    My job requires me to wear blue jeans and since I'm relatively new to carrying a weapon I never realized that the jeans I have worn for years are not very CC friendly.(pockets are way too small)

    What do you guys like for jeans? It would be nice to find some that I could fit my p238 in the back pocket.

    So lets hear it!

    I pocket carry extensively in jeans, but use the front pockets w/ a Nemesis holster. I find the Carhart, Dickies, Key, etc. jeans have lots of room to put things. These are what my wife calls farmer jeans, with room to bend, not the 'sprayed' on jeans. Plenty of room for a pm9, or snub 38 in a front pocket. I've carried a p3at in the rear pocket, but never tried anything larger.

    Do a web search for Toters jeans. I have not tried these, but they look interesting. They are a bit on the expensive side however.

    I have a friend who insists on pocket carry. He takes his trousers to a seamstress he knows and has the pockets on his trousers modified. He has the pocket strengthened and enlarged. He swears by this and has done it for years.

    What kind of weapon do you normally EDC? I EDC in my right front pocket, and its comfortable for me. I find the draw to be MUCH faster than IWB, and MUCH more comfortable (I'm 5' 10" , and 240lbs. I don't need to add MORE to my waist band). I've never had my pockets re-done or had the need to. The only thing I've had happen was corner wear on my jeans from a pocket folder. I swear by standard cargo style pocket jeans. They seem to have a larger pocket. Be aware, as not all pocket holsters are created equally as well. Some have more of a rounded or triangle bottom, while others have a flat bottom (more appropriate, for say dockers.)

    I have to wear Cintas (44", normally 40" from store-bought. Stupid Cintas!) work pants daily, and I drop a J-frame in there everyday.

    Since they don't conceal the gun, I wouldn't consider Toters much for concealed carry.

    +1 for "He takes his trousers to a seamstress he knows and has the pockets on his trousers modified. He has the pocket strengthened and enlarged." It's surprising how inexpensive an alteration can be and make carry easy. Same for spare mag carry.

    Wrangler Cargo Jeans work perfect, and they only cost about $20 at Walmart. You might have to go up a size.

    all of my wranglers fit my p238 in my front pocket i don't see how the p238 wouldn't fit in the back pocket (could be and am often wrong though)? Are you putting anything in there with it? Generally you want to have only two things in the "gun pocket" and well that's the gun/holster combo. I use a Don Hume pocket holster as well

    I think your best bet is to go to a store that carries a wide variety of brands like J.C Penny's or Kohls, take your weapon along and just try a bunch on. Grab a pair of each and hit the dressing room. Will also allow you to experiment with sizes. When I lost my weight and found out that I couldn't conceal as well in clothes that fit I did basically the same thing. Whenever I go shopping my gun always goes with me and get's worn while I try on clothes. Kind of a pain when trying on pants but WELL worth the trouble.

    Carpenter jeans are also very roomy, comfortable, and have pockets large enough to accomodate a pocket holster and weapon. JMO
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Get the relaxed fit in any number of brands. They will allow you more wiggle room in the front pocket area. I personally have never been able to carry anything bigger than a j-frame in a front pocket comfortably.
