I have to take some exceptions to your reply on hats!
BUSH hats and Tilley style hats in general are NOT US
millitary and are not nessarily camoflagged!
In fact the US contingent of BSA scouts to the WJ
in Austrailia in 1989 (i think), were issue a orange BUSH
hat, and in fact WORE the bush hat as the official HAT!
Also as far as STYLE of the uniforms. . . . When BSA
decided to change the uniforms to the current TAN,
a major fashion designer was contacted, I believe it
was Oscar D Larenta or someone such as that!!!! BSA
made a BIG about the re-styled uniforms for a few years.
SO, it would appear that STYLE was important to BSA.
