Serious Sartorial Questions: How To Dress For A Concealed Weapon?

Here’s something that you probably haven’t thought about when you’ve considered where you stand on the concealed weapon debate — concealed weapon fashion.

That’s right! As in — where do you put your gun? Sure, if you wear harem pants all day every day, you have your answer. But can you pack in skinny jeans? Or a dress? What kind of sartorial choices are necessary in order to uphold the right (if you have it) to bear secret arms?

About a week ago, the New York Times addressed this very question. According to the paper, companies are making pants and shirts with hidden pockets that can conveniently fit your freshly purchased handgun:

“What we’ve tried to do is create a collection of garments that allows the end user to have stylish lifestyle apparel but have features in the garment that enable them to carry a weapon and draw the weapon quickly,” said David Hagler, a vice president at 5.11 Tactical

    Well ladies, say you choose to protect yourself from the many terrible individuals that would do you harm. Say you choose to minimize the risks of being a victim. While you cant just strap on a gun and be Wonder Woman, with some practice and familiarization you can get some muscle memory down to deploy your blaster.
    There are purses designed to carry your heater, but i imagine they’re ugly. Probably no more ugly that those terrible boots, but you don’t have to wear ugly clothes or carry an ugly purse for protection.
    An IWB (in waistband) holster can conceal a small pocket pistol (like her in her tight AE jeans: http://i.ytimg.com/vi/x3oPw1WCYpU/0.jpg) no problem and that gun in the picture is a Ruger LCR with is a ton bigger than a subcompact .380acp like a Ruger LCP or Kel-Tec P3AT.
    If anyone is interested ill be a happy guy.
