ETA: and really THAT'S what it boils down to. We can debate the definition of "business casual" all day long. The only meaningful answer is "what can I get away with at my SPECIFIC place of employment?"

QFT.
I wear slacks and a nicer bowling shirt most days and it is never an issue.

It is therefore hard to say.

Is a tuckable holster out of the question?  Or, are you one of those guys who is trying to conceal a full-sized pistol?

You need more than a remora.
Either get yourself a ComTac or other similar style that will not fall out of your pants.

Add another one in an ankle holster. Quick and easy access whether sitting or standing, and 10 rounds instead of five.

Briefcase carry for the office and the car. Pocket backup for the walk to the car. This setup has worked very well for me.

Did he have financial interest in a local Dry Cleaning chain?

You don't have immediate access to your briefcase?

I guess it depends how you work. I teach at a university, so my briefcase travels with me from classroom to classroom. It's always RIGHT THERE, and odds are that an active shooter situation isn't going to start in MY classroom.

Or, if it starts, it shouldn't last too long.

Nothing.

Only old farts tuck in polos.

Business casual would be tucked...

Derp.

Why do classic polos and those still cut in the same manner (Lacoste) have a longer tail in the back?  Because you tuck them in.

OP works in a payday loan store,....I think "business casual" is not going to be very strict.  Just wear one of those photography vests, you will be fine.

Maybe the 5.11 covert shirts are what your looking for. I use a vanguard 2 with tucked in polo

Van hussen fitted work great for me.
