IMHO the issue with adult uniform is setting an example for the boys, so
the uniform should be correct. Personally I can't see the point in
wearing " antique " uniforms or outdated awards unless for a very special
occasion, e.g. a pageant or show to commemorate a special anniversary. By
all means keep them as souvenirs.
Likewise, why wear all those knots ? I can understand that a Scouter may
wish to wear the Eagle Scout knot, but the Arrow of Light gained at
eleven ... is that <really> relevant ? Likewise, why not wear the
highest award in each category rather than the whole string ?
I guess what I am saying is who are we trying to impress here ?
