    Trying to decide on nice holster for my Citadel 1911 compact to be IBW or on belt for same holster option. Have seen somewhere, but where?
    Leather would be nice.
    What do I look for?

    Look at a Galco "Jackass" style leather holster.

    It should work quite nicely with your officers model.

    I carry my Colt Officers Mod in soft suede leather IWBs. they are comfortable and cheap. one of the holsters is a Bianchi, the other is one that I made from leather scraps that came from a place that makes motorcycle leathers.

    Cant beat the Milt Sparks Summer Special. I can carry all day and not even know its there. You can also sit in a car and not have it bother you. I carry it at the 3:30 position, slightly behind hip bone. A good quality gun belt is also a must.
    Holster is made with rough side of leather out so it doesnt slide around.
    Alittle expensive but its worth it
    I belive Brownells or Midway USA carrys them
