I like Leather for IWB concealed carry. 3 o'clock. I have settled on a Safariland Leather IWB holster, no latches, adjustable friction. If I Mexican Carry it's most often cross draw.

I have a Blackhawk Serpa holster (Kydex?). It's terrible for CCW but for an open carry holster, especially around the farm or tucked under my coat during hunting season it's a good holster with great retention.

For me, with a standard 5" 1911 SOB is really uncomfortable.
