    I'm probably going to get a lot of crap from the older guys so I figured the females would have more expiernce with this than the rest of the guys.

    Do any of you females carry with your tight/skinny jeans?

    If so do you have any tips? Perhaps I should start carrying a man bag? I'm prett fed up with not carrying due to the pants I wear. :cantsay:

    Again, please don't give me a hard time with this one. haha

    Why not carry OWB with an untucked shirt to conceal? Or you could just OC.

    I got a 34.5" waist and I buy 36" jeans, but only if they have stretch fabric. This is the way to do it. :D

    I kind of figured you had something to say about it drty haha

    Generally I OC everywhere. Just not in my skinny jeans... Could you imagine the reaction of a little artsy kid with skinny jeans OCing a full size XD40?

    I am also moving to Perry GA. I wouldnt get any crap in Savannah because they are use of the SCAD kids in the area... but Perry... I'm going to get enough strange looks as is... haha!

    They do have some with a little elastic in the waiste. I wonder how bad that will print if I wear a hoodie as well.

    Aw come on Juturna, OC the XD in skinny jeans. Educate them to the fact that even artsy kids carry for protection. :)

    Had to read the second question twice. Originally thought it was a bit personal and somewhat unrelated.

    Maybe get a size up and get them tailored to your liking? Nothing wrong with tighter clothing but I do come from NY where that is pretty common haha!

    =P Yeah most people don't care around here either. However, there are still some traditional folk that tend to give me a hard time. Especially when you have a traditional southern family.

    Fellow skinny jean wearer here.

    I don't have a great answer either, I have a xd9sc in a cb supertuck and it works for some of my jeans while the others no amount of gut-sucking will get them to fit in the waist. So either size up one, OC, or walk around in pain :)

    It was hard to conceal with a larger jacket. However, keep the ideas coming!
    So far I'm up for the Skinny Jeans with elastic waste. I think I have a pair like that. It's not THAT elastic but it may do. Sadly, I can't test any of these because everything is packed!

    Juturna, assuming you're a female, we need pics to help you make this decision. Preferably several angles, with and without skinny jeans. :mrgreen:

    If you're a male, I can't help ya. :shattered:

    I'm a musician, and always wore pretty fitted clothing, but gradually moved away from the skinnier jeans as I started carrying. I found I could carry IWB at 5:30-6:00 with my regular sized jeans, but eventually tried going up a size in the waist and found I could carry comfortably in the 3-4 position comfortably, which I've found conceals better. Jeans that sit below the waist don't leave as much room, or give as much support, for IWB carry, in my experience. To better accommodate concealed carry, I've started wearing large shirts instead of medium, and went up an inch in my waistband.
    You might consider altering your wardrobe slightly, with a fitted, but more classic cut jean like a Levi's 501.

    skinny here too...30" waist at 135 lbs. Don't wear jeans too tight like I did when I was younger....pineter got really big (really...I mean big) and gets squished...:) I don't try real hard to conceal because it's just too hard and really is an art to do. So I just carry a Sig P228 in a Blackhawk Serpa OWB and a tee shirt tucked in to keep the sweat from the gun. In warm weather, I keep the tee shirt untucked with the gun exposed...just to keep the gun from my skin. I pull the shirt over the gun when I feel like lazy conceal. That way everybody thinks I got a brick on my belt....:)

    For an old fart like me, I just carry OWB and pull my shirt over it if it prints it prints. For times where concealment is necessary I wear IWB with shirt of jack over it works well. That's all I've got. BTW I wouldn't skinny jeans if you hit me with em :mrgreen:

    I predict a future topic about men concealing while wearing jeggings.
