Slouchy in the hip, slim through the leg… and perfect for concealing your Colt.
Designers are catering to a growing number of gun owners who want to carry their sidearms in style, according to a new report.
Now ‘covert fashion’ pioneers at Woolrich are expanding their range, with a new Elite Concealed Carry clothing line that features $65 chinos with additional pockets and a stretch waistband to stash firearms.
The ‘concealed carry’ or ‘covert fashion’ collection, as the brand defines it, features cotton/twill blend slacks, a jacket and short sleeve button-down shirts with strategically placed pockets for weapons and tools.
The chinos are designed to have the same clean silhouette as a standard pair of pants with no external cargo or utility pocketing, making them ‘ideal for situations where discretion is important,’ according to the company website.
A hidden chamber, located behind a conventional pocket, is accessible through an invisible zipper and allows for placement of a concealed weapon while reducing printing.
A casual plaid shirt completes the look in offers of olive, navy and shale, designed with Velcro slits, ‘breakaway’ side vents and a false bottom button for ‘easy rapid access to essential gear on the waist’.
The Elite Discreet Carry Twill jacket, in dark shale gray and dark wheat tan, also has discreet carry options and a channel cut through the back that can be used to store plastic handcuffs, the Times reports.
