For women serving as cops or military professionals, finding a suit that conceals a firearm is nearly impossible. Now a former cop, turned fashion designer, is helping women who conceal carry.  

Alisha James feels at home on the range. But didn't always feel comfortable in her work clothes.

"I've been in law enforcement for over a decade and I've figured out that there is no company that is providing suiting for women for women who carry concealed weapons. I got irritated that it didn't exist and created it myself," she said. 

She calls her clothing line Ten Four Clothing.

The suits she designs have reinforced waistbands, inside pockets and extra stretch. The jackets hang longer to cover a firearm and the fit is feminine.

"Traditionally, we have been told just to get a men's small or a men's medium," she said. 

James said suiting-up women in clothing made specifically for them is empowering.
