Want to pack a pistol without the unsightly holster? A growing number of clothing companies are eager to help. As more states pass concealed carry laws, companies like Woolrich and Under Armour have started making clothes that allow wearers to discreetly carry and quickly access handguns. The clothes are designed to look like everyday street wear rather than hunting gear. “What we’ve tried to do is create a collection of garments that allows the end user to have stylish lifestyle apparel but have features in the garment that enable them to carry a weapon and draw the weapon quickly,” said the vice president of 5.11. Last year 7 million Americans had concealed-weapon permits, up from 5 million in 2008.
