Conceal In Style

Conceal In Style

Woolrich’s concealed carry chino pants.

If you carry a concealed firearm, you know that sometimes it can be difficult to remain inconspicuously armed in your everyday clothing.

Sometimes a holster is not an option and can’t be easily concealed.

Iconic clothier Woolrich, realizing this problem, has designed a pair of $65 chino pants that have the clean profile of a standard pair of pants with no external cargo or utility pocketing, but offer the added advantage of a hidden chamber pocket strategically placed for weapons concealment.

The New York Times reports that the company is not alone in creating innovative clothing options for individuals who exercise their 2nd Amendment rights every day, and demand for concealed carry garments for daily wear is on the rise.

The Times reports:

Carriers of concealed guns say the new options are a departure from the law enforcement and military look, known as “tactical,” long favored by gun owners.

The latest styles, by contrast, are called “concealed carry” or “covert fashion.”…

…companies are rushing to meet the demand for concealed-carry clothing. Under Armour, best known for its sports and action gear, will be adding a jacket and a plaid shirt with Velcro pockets for easy gun access.

Increased demand for these types of products could be a good sign for gun rights activists, as it may mean gun ownership for protection is growing in popularity.

Reports indicate that in recent years, gun sales are on the rise. According to figures released by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, gun sales jumped from $19 billion in 2008 to $31 billion in 2011. The FBI’s figures show more than 14-million criminal background checks requested for firearms purchases in 2010 and that number has grown. Employment in the firearms industry jumped 30 percent in the same three years.
