I'm looking for a OWB holster for a my 9mm shield that I can carry easily under a suit coat. I'm looking for something that rides high and I don't care about the material but I'm leaning towards a leather one that looks nicer.

Thanks!

Check out a TT Gunleather OWB High Ride pancake holster. Very functional, high quality, holsters. I carry my Glock 26 in one. High Ride Pancake Holster - TTGunleather Store

You didn't mention whether you wanted a cant or vertical drop; that will narrow down your options as well as the ride and the material. Another factor is whether you want something right now (which means you'll have to buy 'off the shelf'), or whether you're willing to wait a month or two for a custom holster made to your specs. The two are often surprisingly close in price.

I carry a 9 mm. Shield in a Phaetos (low ride/canted) holster made for me by UBG Holsters. He also offers medium and high ride models. I bought the holster about 5 years ago and am very pleased with the quality. Turnaround time was as stated at time of purchase.

For an off-the-shelf nicer looking, leather owb, consider Galco: COMBAT MASTER BELT HOLSTER: Galco Belt Holsters at Galco. Cost is a little more, but quality is good and there's no wait.

You can buy a matching belt from either of the above. Hope that helps.

I wore a tape measure on my side for many years for work. This was a natural progression for me. DeSantis speed scabbard Was my choice.



It rides high & tight.

I carry OWB at 3:00. I have 3 holsters I use with my Shield 9 and Performance Center Shield 9 that meet your criteria. All 3 cause the gun to ride high and tight to the body for excellent concealment and comfort. I think you would be pleased with any of them. The are:

A Lobo Gun Leather pancake holster



A Desantis Mini Belt Slide holster



And a Detroit Concealment custom Kydex holster

This...and budget will give folks more of an idea of what you're after. I have a Galco Combat Master for my M&P40c. Very comfortable...great holster.
