I highly suggest "The Canted" from Kusiak. Fantastic holster, super thin, well made. I've been carrying my 43 in one since Feb. 2016.
Don't know about either, but the Com-Tac Minotaur is very comfortable.
I wear Old Navy straight leg. Nice deep pockets. When I carry my 30 I use a rip-stop nylon wallet under the Sticky to take up the extra depth. They have jeans and pants in big & tall too. I only get the B&T so I don't know about sizes under 38Wx34L.
Younger guys can wear the low rise, works for guys with Dunlops like me too, if you want to wear suspenders (old white guy, flat rear end syndrome)
GT's answer to Dane Cook.
If you pocket carry this^^^ is hard to beat.
In jeans with the flap on it looks like a plus size phone.
For pants/shorts that don't print as much you can take the flap off and it's just like the nemesis, but a little stickier.
Concealment express makes a nice cheap decent quality kydex holster with adjustable cant. I have one for my G19 and G43.
I'm currently looking at getting an Alien gear holster with interchangeable holders for my 19 and 43
I own this one and have carried for years when I want IWB. Cheap too!
Over the course of time, we all will accumulate a number of different holsters for different seasons, types of carry, etc. I carry larger guns OWB when the weather permits a fairly loose jacket or or pullover. For that I lean toward quality leather such as Galco or, for convenience, a good paddle holster. In warmer weather when lighter clothing is necessary, I lean more toward a sticky holster, such as Ramora. I will use one of those for everything from my G30sf to the smaller Shield40.
For IWB carry I would go with the Crossbreed for sure. It can be moved to any position that is comfortable. Alien Gear and Stealth Gear were both modeled after the original Crossbreed. You can't go wrong with the best, and original. I use the Supertuck as well as Mini Tuck. Love them all
Gear Craft Solo? That's a pretty good idea, does it work really well?
aliengear is fantastic, it is comfortable and almost invisible.

Except the Crossbreed doesn't breathe and will be heavier, advantage Stealthgear.

Goodness! How big are your front pockets that a 5-inch 1911 fits in them?
Read post #45 above.
44. I will have to check those out.
I stand corrected. It was post 44.
Would have been cooler if it had been 45, given the gun in question.
Check out the Alien Gear Tuck 3.0 on their website. One nice thing I like, beside the fit and comfort is that you can send the kydex shell in and trade for another shell if you change EDC's, no charge. just remove the shell and ship to AG, they will send you the correct shell by return mail. Hope this helps. Take care, John.
Extra shells are only like $12 too, so very cheap to just have a shell for any gun you might carry.
It certainly works well for me. YMMV. Of course there is no layer between you and the pistol other than the trigger guard area, but that doesn't bother me. I prefer as thin a profile as possible. If you want that kind of minimalist/thin set up, it's a great option.
Since my earlier post in the thread, I saw someone else mention the Q-series holster/trigger guards, which I had never heard of before; although, they look similar to the Raven Concealment Vanguard 2 but with a different style belt clip.
While I have no first-hand experience with the Q-series, I think the two strengths it offers would be:
1. minimalist design
2. Like the RCS Vanguard, it is all one piece of plastic and, therefore, is probably quite sturdy/stable on the pistol.
(The video also shows the wearer doing a one-handed reholster while carrying appendix. Personally, I don't consider that a "feature". While I have at times carried a Glock appendix style, I would never reholster while its in my pants and certainly not with a trigger guard only).
Still, I prefer the GearCraft Solo. Even though it can shift a bit on the gun when not worn (because it is made of two pieces of kydex, not one. But, this shifting doesn't happen IWB), I think it offers more strengths:
1. Also a minimalist design
2. It also adjusts for cant. (Both the Solo & the Q-series adjust for ride height and are ambidextrous; however, the q-series appears to be designed for appendix carry or other uses that don't favor a cant).
3. It covers the mag release button to avoid accidental mag drops while IWB. (Probably a greater risk for those of us who are lefties. I have had other holsters where the retention clip can hit the mag release. Not good).
The Solo on a G43:
Mag release protection:
Here's what I mean about a loose fit when not held snugly in place between belt and body. With some pressure, you can rotate the kydex down and out of place. The trigger is still protected, but the holster isn't rigidly fixed in one position like an RCS Vanguard 2 would be. (However, while carrying, it stays in position. I've had no shifting, movement, or looseness).
And, here's the style of belt clip they use. It comes with a 1.75", but you can also buy a 1.5" version, as seen in this picture.
So, yes, for me, it works very well.
