Do most of you guys that carry IWB require that you buy a larger size pants (waist) for it to fit correctly?
Just dont be sitting across a beloved family member during dinner with your 9mm pointing right at them, chambered nonetheless.:ziplip:I only have one pair of pants that I can't wear IWB and those are my only pair of jeans. It is downright painful to carry in those. I just switch to pocket carry the PF9 when I wear'em. Otherwise everything fits okay. Although with all these Christmas dinners coming up.....might have to goto pocket carry full time!
I have a 32" waist but wear 34" jeans. I have what you may call the lean and muscular build at 5'11 190lbs.My jeans are 1" bigger than my waist size. I think it's perfect for IWB.
That, and what size pants you wear by "default" (assuming you've never carried).Guess it depends more on body type, degree of fitness and what you are carrying. Good belt and holster is always helpful.
I don't worry about pants being an extra bit larger when I use my IWB/SOB with the 'palm out' draw...it tucks in against the kidney without needing extra room.:comeandgetsome::icon_neutral:
