I've had several made by "good" makers.  What I am looking for is one that will ride slightly higher.  I have issues with some of mine ride so low that when I sit they are uncomfortable, or hard to draw from a seated position, like riding in a car.  I'm sure I'm not the only one.  I don't wanna wear my pants like my 80 grandpa which is about what I'd have to do to get some of mine to draw comfortably from sitting.  Suggestions?

Milt Sparks has been my best, but they make mostly (possibly exclusively) for 1911s.  Kramer and Tucker also make exceptional stuff.

All 3 usually have long waits.

Milt Sparks makes fine holsters. One can have the summer special model carried in stock at B rownells for several popular semi autos.  One can also special order from Milt Sparks and while they make a fine 1911 holster they also make them to fit a variety of other handguns custom. I recieved one for a N Frame Smith and Wesson 4 inch about two months ago and it works just dandy. I have one on order that may hopefully show up late spring or early summer for a Glock 21.

I wear the executive companion most days, great holster, no outline (once broken in) and doesn't move around at all.

Hard to beat Milt Sparks holsters, belts and mag pouches IMHO.  I've been using them since the 70s for 1911s and N frame Smiths.  All six or seven of my holsters, several mag carriers and a belt are still in service, several having seen lots of use.  The downside is the turn time and limit on how many new orders they will accept each month.  Monthly quota is usually filled during the first few days of each month and then the wait.  Ebay is an option but clean used ones have recently been selling for as much as double list price to beat the order time.  Kramer also makes durable leather that is not quite as meticulous as Sparks but tough as nails and equally functional.  Another quality maker with quicker turn time at a lower price point for well designed concealment holsters is Kirkpatrick Leather in TX.

You should try a cross draw holster. It works better than any I've used for sitting or in a car.

TT gunleather made a crossdraw. Everything I have of his is a perfect fit to the weapon and hugs tight to the body. I do not have a crossdraw from Tim Thurner. I noticed that his wait time is down to only 10 weeks. Backlog is normaly over 25 weeks for the last 3 years. Sholling recommended him to me.  I have been happy he did . It is best to have a single stack under 3.5" barrel to be comfortable wearing it in the 2 or 10 o'clock position for a IWB crossdraw. The one that was on his website was simular to his slim model with a heavy reverse cant. His holsters have a tab on the bottom that keeps the holster from digging in. OWB can accommodate a larger weapon. I use a Crossdraw for a 9" barrel  tractor gun when brush hogging in areas that will allow coyote shooting. It was made by Mock Brothers Saddlery. in Sand Springs, OK.

Some of the Pure Custom holsters are adjustable for cant and how high or low they ride.  I have several brands of IWB holsters for 1911's and have a Pure Custom Black Ops for my Sig P238.  It is a well made and comfortable holster.
