Does such a beast exist, other than sweaters? I need to have the best access to my concealed carry weapon at all times while in the office.

Business casual would be a tucked in shirt.

Don't think any really exist....I take it it's not feasible to wear a sport coat all day in the office...

That leaves you with an ankle holster or pocket carry...

If you go with a tuckable holster setup, I'm not sure it'll be faster to draw from that than it would be an ankle holster to be honest...and plus talk about telegraphing your move...

Pocket carry.

Or you could carry in a shoulder holster. But you would need to rip your shirt open superman style to get to it.

Carrying in business casual sucks.

Pretty sure yeah, but wondered if there was something that would look nice not tucked in, this for example is passable in my office:

You could wear the 1/4 zip over a dress shirt, but that wouldn't be very handy in the summer.  That is when you will find it more challenging.

I may have worn something similar in the past at the office when it was cold during the winter months.Usually with a collar shirt under it.
Just make sure it's not too tight and use darker colors.

Another option during the winter months and into spring is to use a vest which is what I used more often.

Isn't there a Hindu or Muslim shirt dress you could wear?  

I like the Chuck Finnley style but thats only appropriate in FL.

i've tried those, but if they fit properly, they're going to ride up over even a deep IWB as soon as you sit down.  IMO, the only way to make that kind of overshirt work is appendix carry [edit: or belly band]







for carry in casual business environments, i prefer relaxed-fit sports coats.  my go-to is a sand-colored linen coat that isn't too hot, is comfortable to move around in, and keeps everything nicely covered.

Ehh, maybe not to do out to dinner or something, but for business casual it should be, also jeans aren't business casual, doesn't matter if they are a $200 pair or a pair of $10 Walmart specials.

Going by your standard just wear a button up shirt tucked in, no tie, top button undone. It will look more professional than an untucked polo, if it's long sleeved you can even get away with rolling the sleeves.

What type of place do you work?  Business casual and "need to have the best access to my concealed carry weapon at all times while in the office" are a bit of a contradiction.  

And yes, business casual is tucked in.

Still needs to be tucked in, business casual is tucked in regardless of the style of shirt. All that being said it depends on the dress code at your place of employment. Sme places have a much more relaxed view of business casual that includes employees being allowed to wear jeans...at that point an untucked shirt is ok

Not really. Tee shirt relevant to job (company logo, or Hank Hill if you work at a propane store, or Milton with a red stapler if you work in an office, etc.) under a casual sport coat (maybe something like denim, light linen, etc.). I think it looks nicer than a polo.

Of course, for me the question is... academic. Because I work in a school. Neither business casual nor guns.

Most places arent going to consider a t-shirt business casual...even when dressed up with a sport coat
Link Posted: 1/25/2014 12:06:47 PM EDT
Depend on the style of shirt. If it has a straight cut/seem across the bottom that is made to hang and meant to tuck in.. there you go

Buy a corduroy blazer in a traditional (not skinny/metro) cut.  Or maybe a Duluth Trading Company presentation jacket.

My company defines it as "khaki/Dickie's pants or nicer and an ironed shirt with a collar and buttons" or there-abouts.

I wear Dickie's and nicer bowling shirts (think Charlie Sheen), untucked, everyday at work and it passes with ALL of my supervisors, including my supervising client.

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?"
Link Posted: 1/25/2014 12:31:32 PM EDT
The SuperTuck holster works ok with a tucked in shirt, as long as the shirt is heavier fabric and a darker color.  The V-Clips with a velcro-lined belt are very low profile.  I would use that rig to carry in casinos in Vegas when dressing up a bit and had zero problems.

If it has tails, you tuck it in when you are in a business environment.

I vote pocket or ankle carry.

Business casual: has become one of the most fascinating terms to hit the American lexicon.

One mans "take off your tie and jacket" has become another's "show up like you are at the beach."

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?
