    Recently received my TTgunleather Reinforced IWB "Mikes Special" holster for the Les Baer CC. I honestly can't imagine it being any better. Perfect cant, perfect fit, superb quality all around.
    Using this holster with a Bulhidebelts Brown Steel Core leather gun belt. I've had this belt around 3 years; it's 1/4" thick with a steel core insert. It just gets better every year and laughs at the weight of an all steel 1911.
    I don't know why but this leather holster/belt/1911 setup is way more comfortable and easier to conceal than my Glock 19/kydex setup, even though it's both larger/heavier than the latter. It almost feels thinner overall IWB than the plastic fantastic setup; maybe that's it?

    I’ve got one just like it. Typical TT Gunleather: freaking excellent. I got mine barely used for a 5” with rail. It fits my Pro excellently. I haven’t carried mine, yet, but it will do the job.

    Nice looking carry rig. For me, leather is always more comfortable than kydex because it forms to your body.

    Looks good! Can't wait for this one to break in like yours has.

    That's what I'm beginning to think; It just contours to the body better overall.

    Beautiful combination! I'm a Southpaw, so I have to add a "mighty fine!"

    I'm so glad to see this as I've placed an order with them.
    This will be my first TT product and I wanted AIWB leather.
    Due in two weeks.

    I have the same holster for my Commander. I’m very pleased with it. Well made, comfortable & good retention. Nice quality leather work.

    Excellent choice. I’ve been wearing that exact holster for 5 years.

    I purchased one (Reinforced Mike's Special) a couple months ago for my CZ 75 P01 Omega. I do like it a lot.

    Question completely off topic and a little strange, what pants are you wearing? I've been looking for something similar and everything seems to be crap quality, those look pretty decent.

    Those are firm duck Carhartt B10 model. Unfortunately they no longer make them so the closest you can get is the B01 model but the fit is different and they're double front. I know all this because I've searched for another pair for months and even emailed Carhartt to make them again to no avail lol. Closest I've found is the Carhartt washed duck and some pairs made by Duluth Trading Co. You'd think a quality made pair of pants wouldn't be hard to come by but it is...

    Riggs by Wrangler are good enough for my behind.
    Give them a look to see if they will fit your needs.
