Haha, BIG GUY, you're a fargin' ballerina compared to me.

I use (EDCX9) Warbird, IWB/OWB convertibles at a 25deg cant. It hides perfect under my FFG (full figured guy) love handles. I also have 3 more Warbird's set up the same way. DW ECO, WC Xtac compact, & WC Wilber Centac.

Also the 2" bigger waist size is sound advice from @gaijin.

I am a thin guy & find the Galco Jack Ass shoulder holster more comfortable
for all day carry than the IWB holster.

IWB does work better for warm weather, when a shirt is all you need.
At a 32" waist, the hardest part for me is keeping my pants up LOL.

Thanks guys, just need to keep trying different ways.
What about dropping a few lb’s?

You’d feel like a new man. I’m 6’6” was 311 lbs. Dropped down to 248 lbs. I’m a jacked 265 lbs now. I had to drill a new hole in my belt a couple of weeks ago. Never felt better. A New Year is coming....

Good for you, great accomplishment. I was at 335 a few years ago so I have been there and just stopped.

It’s literally the hardest thing I’ve ever done. They’re are so many health reasons alone to do it. Sorry if I’m going off topic, but I a fix the problem type of guy. It’s helped with my knees and sleep apnea.

Oh and for every 30 lbs you lose your penis gets an inch bigger.

To answer the original question. I bought this fine rig from a very fine local maker who I’ve bought five gun belts from and at least one other 1911 holster. I’m not as big as you, but I just found carrying in a shoulder rig to be...cumbersome.

I only where 40 waist pants, but 46-48 Extra Long coat.
