Steve McQueen's holster in 'Bullitt'

Hey there folks. I was watching the old classic movie, 'Bullitt' the orher day and was wondering what kind of shoulder holster Steve McQueen was wearing? I would really like to get my hands on one for my Smith & Wesson 642. If anyone can tell me where I can get one, I would greatly appreciate it.

And just for the record, 'Bullitt' is the coolest movie where the lead characrer carried a snub.

Ken Null, Greg Kramer; Kramer Gunleather....

That style shoulder rig is based on a design I think was made by Tom Threepersons or Paris Theodore.
Custom holster maker: Ken Null or maybe Kramer Gun Leather could set up a holster a lot like it.
Jack Lord(Steve McGarett) on the hit cop show; Hawaii 5-0 used a upside down concealment holster for his S&W Chief's Special too; .
