    OWB carry is one solution. The other is to get a much smaller, slimmer pistol for IWB carry, something like a p365 or p365xl. The Walther Creed is big for IWB. The smaller the pistol, the less effect it'll have on your pants fit.

    I like that elastic waistband on the Cabela's cargo pants

    I think a good belt is most important no matter what kind of trousers and also OWB carry. I agree with a lot of these writers about Wranglers. I like the cowboy Wranglers the best.

    I tried IWB and hated it. I always go back to a quality leather pancake style holster for my 5" 1911 on my Wrangler belt on my Wrangler jeans covered by an untucked garment. For deep concealment, I pocket carry a Sig P938 9mm. For really deep concealment, I pocket carry an NAA Mini-Mag 22M revolver.

    I wear Haggar "Men's Stretch Comfort Cargo Expandable Waist Classic Fit Plain Front Pant" from Amazon. I order my usual 34 waist size. They're comfortable whether carrying 9 mm IWB, front pocket w/ .380, or both. They work for me.

    I wear Wranglers - Slim fit (I'm kinda scrawny) and can't make IWB work for me either, so I go OWB with cover or belly band.

    @M1911A1 I am impressed that there are entire stores dedicated to suspenders. Might keep that in mind as my butt fades into to yesteryear.

    Buy 1 size larger and cinch down with a very high quality gun belt.
    Holds my britches and my 1911 up no problem.
    I do prefer OWB though for more comfort.
    Glad to see that you wear pants. Had a hard time getting past the idea of a guy wearing a kilt and riding a horse.

    My gun belt fits fine on my kilt.
    I also have a custom made kilt with a pocket just large enough for a airweight snubbie.
    I do not wear kilts 100% of the time, but I do wear often.
    They are great for hiking and woods walks.

    I've never experienced that problem with any of my trousers.

    Try Wearing your trousers a little further down on the hips, go up a couple sizes in the waist (if you're not already), and wear a good gun belt (if you're not already).

    That's all I got.

    Iíd say the average age of the contributors to this thread .... well letís just say that weíre long in the tooth. The fact that we know what trousers are is evidence. I donít think folks under 55 even know the word.

    Sorry for my shallow contribution.
