    For you OWB carry dudes, I assume those of you who are of "average" stature can just buy "TALL" shirts and get a bit more length to help cover your OWB rig.

    So have any tall dudes found a super extra tall version of nice shirts for OWB carry?
    I've tried virtually every brand of tall I have found and they barely do the job for regular wearing, let alone hiding an OWB rig...so I'm looking for ideas here.
    I've always IWB for this main reason but OWB sure seems it would be way more comfortable and convenient.

    (FWIW I'm 5'18" tall so just *slightly* above average)

    your only 5" taller than I and I seem to have no issue with western shirts in Wrangler, Cinch, and other related brands.

    I'm thinkin' you'll have better luck at "Big and Tall" shops than regular clothing stores.

    I've bought stuff from from "Davis' Big & Tall" several times over the phone (they've changed their name to "Davis' Clothing & Outdoor" now).

    They're located in Louisiana.

    Duluth "Long Tail" and "Tall" work fine for daily wearing to the office but dont really provide any additional length for a guy who could use some extra length on top of being tall trying to cover an OWB setup.

    Casual Male is about the same for all the tall brands I've tried there (Polo/Ralph Lauren/Lucky/house brand, etc).

    Bass Pro sells "talls", but again, they just barely do the job for normal clothes...and I'm out of length trying to hide something on my hip.

    Thanks for that link.

    Being 6'6" and about 380 lbs., I have a hard time finding decent shirts in 6XT. I'll check it out.

    I'm 6'3" and sorta long waisted but have no problem OWB. I think the holster matters more than the shirt. I like a high rise pancake.

    I’m in the same boat, I’m 6’6” and usually have to iwb or pocket carry. I’d like to carry owb but I’m not fond of the attention it brings due to lack of concealability by upper garments
