Stylish Pants for Men: Two Concealed Gun Options

Written by Gary North on April 25, 2012

From the New York Times, we learn that one venerable firm has started to offer new pants line for men. Their gimmick? Two different ways to carry a concealed handgun.

The pants are chinos. The company is Woolrich, which has been around for  182 years. This is the Woolrich Elite Concealed Carry line.

There is a second pocket behind the front pocket. There is also a stretchable waistband that lets you carry a holstered weapon.

You can carry a knife, too.

That’s the kind of fashion statement I approve of.

Best of all, they cost only $65.

The company says the pants are for the fashion-aware gun owner.

Better yet, other companies have targeted this market.

One fan has fallen in love with the shirt.

The shirt has a barely discernible side slit with Velcro through which, he said, he can yank his Colt 1911 from his waistband holster. Depending on circumstances and mood, he might also carry a folding knife and, at night, a flashlight in a pair of Woolrich chinos his girlfriend bought for him.

The new line is not for would-be commandos. It is for people who want to offer a surprise to trouble-makers.

“What we’ve tried to do is create a collection of garments that allows the end user to have stylish lifestyle apparel but have features in the garment that enable them to carry a weapon and draw the weapon quickly,” said David Hagler, a vice president at 5.11 Tactical, who was lured from Nike to work at 5.11, one of the biggest makers of clothing for soldiers and police officers.

Fashion nuts and gun nuts, unite!

    Are they going to design styles for women? We need a way to legally and unobtrusively, carry, just as much as men……maybe more!

    I saw this Bra Holster last week and was surprised especially the demonstration by the pregnant woman.
    With aging quite a few of us are getting thicker around the middle and hate the bulkiness of a front fanny pack and the holster purses are sometimes literally a pain in the neck. I think I'll be getting one and see how it feels. i guess it'll help my posture if anything.

  3. I liked the article except for the last line; they could have left out the word "nuts". It is not nuts to carry in this crazy world.

  4. It is about time ! With the upsurge in Trayvon revenge crimes, some new conceal – carry ideas are in order. Ya'll be careful out there !

  5. Is that a gun in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

  6. Where are they marketed, ? I need at least two pair plus shirts !Aitch
