    One of my twins [ 27 years old] has worn skinny jeans. I dont remember the size of the rear pockets but maybe this could work.

    If not this one with more coverage. Think Truckers wallet but with a gun inside.

    Best answer I've seen yet given your parameters. Skinny jeans and pocket carry means you have to ask your assailant to, "Um could you wait just a minute, oh there, dang, I almost had it. Just another minute. Here, would you mind holding this, ok, there, now what do you want Sucka? And give me back my keys, I just needed you to hold them while I drew my piece".

    Besides, California is the one place on earth where a fanny pack does NOT scream GUN. Fanny pack in Cal could mean virtually anything and gun is among the least likely.

    No judgement here. I respect not basing your life around your carry gun. Mu wardrobe usually lends itself well to hip pocket carry of a pocket .380. Either TCP or LCP in my case. I use a Desantis Superfly. Maybe not he optimum rig, but I am never unarmed. And don't be fooled, I can draw plenty quick, especially if they are asking for my wallet.

    Think outside the holster



    When I'm wearing clothes too tight for holster carry, I just shoulder what my lady calls my "man-bag."
    My man-bag has two large external compartments, three large internal compartments, and 8 small internal compartments.
    Interiorly, I conceal a loaded full-sized handgun, 2 spare mags and a folding knife.
    Exteriorly, I conveniently carry my cell phone, wallet, business cards, chap-stick, flashlight, keys, gum, tactical ink pen, and anything else I may need to carry that day.
    I've had no problems carrying my man-bag into restaurants, stores, or virtually anywhere in public. I carried my man-bag into church over the holidays and I blended in with the men who were carrying bible bags.
    Sometimes carrying a bag just makes more sense than trying to stuff everything into my pockets.
    There's various styles of formal and casual bags on the market that can be fashioned to meet your concealed carry needs.

    Pocket carry seems like a terrible idea for skinny jeans. Not only will it print like crazy you would have issues getting it out of the pocket.
    I agree. Appendix carry is the way.

    Actually that is a nice stealth bag; it looks more like what you would carry for a laptop or a large tablet.

    What does a refugee from Duluth Trading Company look like? I might be him because I like their side pocket jeans which by the way is an excellent place to carry. I probably would look out of place going to the places a 21 year old would go to though. I'd no doubt feel out of place since I'm in my upper 50's. He could start a new Duluth fad though!

    Old Man made a good suggestion. At least I thought it was good, because I thought of it, too!

    Consider a back pocket holster. If you do, get on that disguises the the gun so that the outline just looks like a wallet. I like Braid's holsters (wallet holsters). Depending on where you work and what you do, you might also consider something like a portfolio. I carried this way to work just yesterday (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1).

    You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

    Normally I'd never suggest this, but a sob holster.

    Other than that, I'd say make some minor adjustments in your wardrobe and a lot more options will open up

    I have found the Aholster pocket Kydex to be the best I have ever tried. The black is .060 thickness and not only holds the gun upright in both square and rounded pockets but, that hook means all I do is pull the gun. No other sweeping to the rear or pressing against the leg the holster just plain stays in the pocket no matter how I draw. Obviously I highly recommend.

    That is the "Pocket Backbone" model on his website at the bottom of the products tab.
