    Probably

    IMHO, it all depends on your holster and belt.

    After that, your mode of dress will dictate what, how and if you can carry.

    I'm 6'3" and 280#. I'm a jeans and baggy t-shirt kinda guy. Sometimes I'll tuck in a t-shirt and wear a loose button-up shirt (unbuttoned).
    I do like the overall idea, though!

    I carry a Smith 1911 in a hawk belt holster under loose long t shirts in summer and under vest or jacket in winter. Only problem I have had is when I buckle my seat belt in the jeep. But that just takes a little adjustment.

    I carry a Springfield EMP in a galco holster on a galco belt, everyday, everywhere except when showering.

    I only carry my 1911s in local area-horizontal shoulder holster under Hawian shirts....always get a surprised look when it's "hug the person next to you time"in church...then a smile-I love the South.

    I have a couple of OWB holsters for my 1911's. One is a leather Galco see below

    I also use a Fobus OWB and I have a very nice Galco King Tuck IWB. I bought a pair of Wranglers 1 size to big for this one! https://www.amazon.com/Galco-KT212B-King-Tuck-Holster/dp/B004AO4ALC

    I carry an Officer's ACP, RIA Milspec, Colt Mk 4 .38 Super, last two are full size. Either my Hawaiian or fishing shirts cover them all. I bought a summer weight vest for conceal carry when I want to wear a T-shirt and a large gun under it.
