I was so excited to find a few more of these tie front knot shirts on a recent trip to The Mothership. Not only are they super comfy, lightweight, and great for concealing but they were also on sale. I really wanted to buy this top in olive green as well but I found some self-control and restraint. I do wish they had it in black though. But this grayish-chambray color will be so cute going into summer. I can totally see it paired with white shorts and a cute pair of sandals.
I’m slowly shifting from the Spring concealed carry mode into Summer. I’m opting for lightweight fabrics to help keep me cool. I’m also ditching the extra bulk around the waist and choosing my Blacksmith Tactical holster with Fabriclip. It’s such a versatile holster because I can wear it with almost everything in my closet.
— Concealed Carry Tip —
When using a holster that does not require a belt be sure to take into consideration the fit and fabric of the pants (or skirt) you are pairing it with. The point of using a good quality belt with your holster is to make sure that your firearm and holster stay up and don’t sag your pants down. The added weight around your waist needs to be supported. So when choosing a holster with a Fabriclip or UltliClip option, I find it’s best to pair them with pants that are pretty fitted around the waist and that are heavier in fabric such as denim. That extra snugness around your waist from your fitted pants will help keep the firearm and holster from sagging and pulling your waistband down.
You can still wear a belt with this holster if you chose. You would still clip the holster to your garment and then put the belt on so it sits over top of the clip.
