The announcement of the new Exploring Uniform did not authorize it for
wear by Boy Scouts. Until we hear differently from National, the only
uniform shirts authorized for Boy Scouting are those in the Insignia
Control Guide; e.g., the tan shirt, various t-shirts. Using the Exploring
shirt without insignia in my opinion is not any different than a Troop
deciding on its own uniform. And if that were to be acceptable, where
would it stop. Imagine a group of Scouts on tour in mega-death torn
T-shirts and baggy shorts - what kind of message would be sent then?
