However, the ladies on the forum and anyone who identifies as female may find something of interest?
    Hmm, if it provides a solution to a specific weapon-concealment need, especially in a non-permissive environment, maybe “identifying” as female, or non-binary, could be situationally advantageous. When I was a kid, I remember a homicide detective, who was a member of our church, remarking that he wished purses would become fashionable for men, so he could use one to carry his handgun. Of course, forty to fifty+ years later, weapon-concealment purses for men are normal; just not being called “purses.”

    I remember when some business establishments would want me to leave my “portfolio brief” at the front counter, or with a manager, when women could (usually) freely enter with a large purse, of about the same size. I ran into the same problem when I started toting a laptop, which was before there were “notebook” laptops. Finally, laptop bags/cases/backpacks became so common, places stopped requiring men to check most bags at the door. (I know that large backpacks will present a problem, at some places, which is why I do not tote my LAW-folder-ed DDM4 V7P, while at the local shopping plaza.)

    To get to female-specific clothing, well, I bought Dene Adams semi-compression-type shorts, for my wife to use, for concealed carry. There are holster pockets, and other pockets, built into the waistband. The stretch factor makes them look pretty unisex, to me, and are well-made, making most “belly band” rigs look crude. Of course, women can wear such shorts, without another layer over them, socially acceptably. If any of us guys are bold enough to “wear women’s underwear,” as an inner layer, or as the only layer, well:

    Back in the late 80's early 90's in Miami, the easiest way to spot a fed, (ATF, DEA, Customs, etc), was to look for the leather purse man-bag / clutch. It was a dead giveaway and guys had to stop using them for that reason.

    A really good way for a man to carry a bag, and not alarm folks, is to also sling a camera, as deceptive camouflage. Some places, of course, do not allow photography, so will have kittens if they see a camera that is visible. Capping the lens opening, and putting the lens away, assuages the worries of at least some security types.

    A nice bag, though I made the mistake of ordering black, which really shows dirt and pet hair:

    This is what I would wanna carry, if I wanna be femme. I got one, as a gift, for my wife, and I am envious:

    Worse yet, those guys wore loafers with no socks.

    Oh, the humanity!!!

    (Thankfully, yours truly resisted this insidious trend.)
