This will be my first summer with my VP9SK which means there will be some trial and error in terms of figuring out what outfits and tops I can wear that will allow me to comfortably concealed carry my VP9SK. My summer carry firearm has been my Glock 43 but if you've been following me for sometime then you know that I'm all about the VP9 so being able to carry the sub-compact version is important to me. Luckily, our hot and humid days here in DC haven't been very consistent so I'm not having make the shift to a complete summer wardrobe just yet.
This striped linen button down shirt was something I owned in my pre-carry life that works well with my new carry lifestyle and even better allows me to conceal my VP9SK. I'm all about the partial tuck with my t-shirts and it's not different with a button-down. The partial tuck allows for easy access to the firearm and since this style shirt tends to be more structured I find that it doesn't settle into the lines of the firearm, which means no printing. An additional benefit of button-down shirts is that since they tend to be bit longer, you can get away wearing a pant with a lower waist if that's your preference. as you won't have to worry so much about raising your arms or reaching and exposing your firearm.
