(which may be relevant with an ankle holster or carrying past certain signs) but is pretty much irrelevant on say, city property in a belt or shoulder holster.
Anyway, the definition seems to have been repealed
Texas legal definition of concealed was repealed because Texas no longer has "concealed carry" so it is irrelevant if carrying in a belt or shoulder holster, but applies to ankle holsters and other holsters which must be concealed by a licensee to carry a handgun holder)
The legal definition was Repealed but it used to be

Texas Government Code - GOV'T § 411.171. Definitions
In this subchapter:
(3) “Concealed handgun” means a handgun, the presence of which is not openly discernible to the ordinary observation of a reasonable person.

Texas Government Code Sec. 411.171 Definitions
In this subchapter:
(3) Repealed by Acts 2015, 84th Leg., R.S., Ch. 437 , Sec. 50, eff. January 1, 2016.
This is why I cannot find a definition in Texas law now
(But ...does a Texas definition of "concealed" exist elsewhere any more?
Because the term is still used... so what does
"in a concealed manner" mean ?
Penal Code 46.15 Nonapplicability

-(Interestingly, The State of MT definition is pretty loose http://jeffersoncounty-mt.gov/documents ... MCA_45.pdfSec. 46.15. NONAPPLICABILITY.
(b) Section 46.02 does not apply to a person who:
6) is carrying:
(A) a license issued under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, to carry a handgun; and
(B) a handgun:
(i) in a concealed manner; or
(ii) in a shoulder or belt holster;
A permit is required if you will be concealing a weapon in an incorporated
Concealed weapon includes any weapon that is wholly or partially covered by clothing or
wearing apparel. )
So apparently you need a permit if your shirt partly covers your handgun and you must get a permit there if you want to drape say, a sock, necktie or pantyhose over part of your pistol's grip
