Personally, I wouldn't choose a 1911 for pocket carry. To my mind, a 1911 is best carried in condition 1 (round in the chamber, cocked and safety engaged). That works out just fine in a holster, but I don't think it's the best idea of pocket carry.
I like a hammerless S&W J frame (a 442, 642 or 640) for pocket carry. The LCP Rich mentioned also looks promising. Or I'd be tempted to try the small Kahr 9mm. There are some other small auto-loaders that would also be suitable.
