I tend to be 50/50 IWB/OWB and have discovered Dickies work shirts to be ideal for the latter. Nice long, even shirt tails and they come in a wider assortment of colors (on Amazon.com) than you'll find at WalMart.

They're not dressy but they don't scream "guy-packing-a-gun," like vests.

First off, the floral/hawaiian print thing is not that bad. I've often said that women have more cover opportunities then men do because patterns in blouses tend to hide things better.

That said, I like the Columbia PFG shirts, untucked, if I'm needing something to cover. They run longer than most shirts, and if you do find one that is a T, as in XLT, or 2XLT, even better. Carharrt makes a lot of shirts that are T designated as well. Of course, it helps if you're tall .... the tall ones look a little gangsta on someone 5'5" tall! :smile:

But those Dickies are nice shirts.

I'm very grateful to be at the age where it just doesn't matter anymore. :yup:

I might tuck if meeting with certain business partners, but I generally leave whatever I put on that morning, hanging out.

I buy Duluth Longtail Tees because they have just enough extra length to help keep things concealed. I don't OWB much anymore but even for IWB it's nice to have a little extra material so you don't have to be so concerned about normal movement.

Those Dickies are classic. I've worn that style since long before I started carrying. Last spring I picked up some seersucker pattered Van Heusen shirts at Kohls - bought one of each color. The seersucker fabric really helps break things up.

Seersucker is hard to find but I always keep an eye out for it.

I pity the poor fool dirtbag who picks this guy out of a crowd for a robbery, only to find out that he's the local quick draw champion...can draw from cover and shoot 5 targets in 2.2 seconds, and hit all at dead center:rofl:

Those Duluth shirts (in general) are nice. The longer length of the T-shirts keeps you from having to wear a whole size larger just to get the extra length with a regular shirt. Or ...... check out BotachTactical.com and they often have those 5.11 Tactical Shirts on sale. With free shipping it is a good deal when they run them. Sometimes they get a bad rap for shipping inconsistencies but the prices make it worth while, at least IMO.
