    Help me find a nice vest

    I prefer to carry OWB. at 6-4 300# 3XLT it's hard enough keeping my pants on without a gun. Just purchased a great 1-3/4" wide gun belt, but, what I'm looking for is a nice "casual" every day vest that looks like something any average joe would wear and does not shout "HEY Everybody, I'm carrying a gun" So far in my web search I'm seeing

    1) young & skinny (I'm not either)
    2) cheap and tacky
    3) Left my hog at home
    4) lost my camera and replaced it with this gun.
    5) I slept in my clothes last night including this vest.
    6) My horse died and I turned it into this vest. Where can I check my spurs?
    7) Too short to cover anything, why are you even wearing this?

    Any suggestions outside of this list would be appreciated.

    Thanks;

    Sorry. I cant help you but wanted to say you have a great sense of humor. I actually chuckled at the vests youve found so far.

    Thanks. This stiff actually looks like clothes you wouldn't find under the flashhing blue light special sign. I'm going to look a little closer.

    Concealed Carry Clothiers makes a good vest. All of the pockets are on the inside of the vest.

    I think I remember someone on here saying that they used a photographers vest. Or maybe it was; they found a vest they liked and to keep it from screaming "gun", they stitched or ironed on a Nikon patch or something like that.

    I wear my Woolrich Elite lightweight vest a lot, and I'm almost EXACTLY the same size as you. 6'04, 315.

    ....and, like you, I prefer OWB holsters.

    If you don't mind going SUPER-casual, I've found that 3XL tank tops tend to be long enough.....

    Another vote for the Woolrich Elite lightweight. Just looks like a casual vest, just four pockets, no M16 mag pouches, no inside panels to hold a spare UZI.....
    and if you do want a dead cow vest, foxcreekleather.com can make one in any size and dimensions (for example, add length) - their brown vests do not look like you should have a Harley someplace.
