What I always tell the parents of my cubs is that they should always wear
the uniform pants, so it's always the same pants that get dirty when they
do the things they do. But of course I don't know what the BSA pants are
like; the Scouting Nederland uniform pants are quite strong, and definitly
last longer in "heavy use" than more expensive jeans.
So much for a small international note in this discussion...
