    Pants

    If you decide to carry IWB, do you put on pants that are 1-2 sizes bigger than your waist? Does that mean shopping for pants with your IWB to get the right fit?

    And is there a separate wardrobe for IWB versus OWB? Seems like a big pain---all your pants are 1 or 2 sizes too large and you have to wear belts all the time.

    There are stretch jeans out there that can really help too.

    My waist is about 34" and I buy Wrangler carpenter pants and Wrangler cargo pants. I buy 34"waist and I wear IWB holster and a Glock 17. Fits me well. If I carried IWB at the office I would wear a 35" or 36" waist in dress slacks. Thankfully, my office attire has been shoved to the back of the closet.

    Iíve found that it depends. Iíve been losing weight and I can now fit into 34ís. When I first found that I could ďfitĒ in them, carrying IWB was not comfortable. They were snug without a holster but not uncomfortable. But when I squeezed a IWB holster in there...ehhh...I got the 36s back out of the closet and that was much more comfortable.

    Depends on the pants of course, but I really like Prana "Zion Stretch" Convertible.
    They have plenty of pockets and plenty of room and are very durable.
    The only thing that changed,(and of course they couldn't leave them alone) is the cargo pockets are
    slightly shorter now so my freaking 5.7" phone doesn't stay in as well as my older pairs.
    I have some in my normal size and some one size larger.
    The type of IWB holster will make a difference too obviously. I recommend Comp-tac Minataur. FWIW
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you!

    I use a king tuck IWB holster and wear a 32" waistband. My older jeans have plenty of room, slightly stretched? IDK. Newer pants are a little tighter but still doable, this is with a Glock 43.

    Yeah carry and non carry sizes may be the order of the day. I donít see requirement of a belt being an issue? Especially if you go owb you going to need a belt regardless.

    I don't buy a bigger size pant to carry IWB and I've carried that way for years. I've found for me the belt is the most important part of comfortable and secure carry - IWB or OWB. And I go both ways.
