Story

Offering custom, American-made concealment attire since 1997
Introduction
Concealed Carry Clothiers was started in 1997 by my brother, Walt, and myself (Gingee).  Walt was teaching handgun safety classes through his local police department and called and asked me if I could make a Vest for him that would allow him to discreetly and safely carry his waist mounted holster with gun.

After going back and forth over the details of inside and outside the waistband holsters, shoulder holsters, needed pockets - stiff enough to provide for a clean sweep to his gun - it dawned on both of us that if he had this need then there were probably a bunch of folk who also did.

What we decided to develop were a few Vest styles that would allow both men and women to tastefully and discreetly carry while moving about in public. The emphasis was still on waist mounted holsters. The need for a 'clean sweep' using our lightweight fabric, meant introducing canvas lining to our outside pockets.  

The Internal Pocket System just kind of developed after we realized how many different items we could carry in the pockets - if those items were held upright, accessible, and out of the way of all the other items one needs and wants to carry. By using Velcro as the attachment medium in the rugged canvas lined front pockets, the Vests could still be machine washed and dried which is a really important feature to a daily wearer. 

The Gun Belts just were the next evolution of wanting to carry needed items securely.  It's interesting to note that once we started working on this I realized that a man's belt is like a woman's pocketbook...it must carry a lot of stuff securely. From cell phones, to pagers, to OC spray, to holsters...it's a very important piece of equipment. But, to us, what became most important was to create a belt that even a trained observer would not recognize as a 'gun belt'.  By thinning down the latch and buckle area and only doubling up the thickness where you need the strength and stability to hold your equipment - it's invisible as a Gun Belt.

So, that's how it happened.  Walt had the need, the gun experiences to draw on for design creation, and the critical eye to comment on detail, style, and invisibility.  Luckily, I had the design, pattern, and sewing experience and lots of time working with horses and bridle and harness repair and buckle replacement.

From the start, we both have been dedicated to making the best products, with the best materials, at the best price. We provide excellent customer service, meeting individual needs for custom work and design. So coming from Walt and I and all the folk who work for Concealed Carry Clothiers - we thank you for being our customer.
