I think the proper answer would be: ok. I'm out of uniform. I could imagine
that the guy was teasing you only.
Now as a cubmaster I have this problem that a few of my den leaders (which
are otherwise good den leaders) do not wear uniform. Also the majority of
my den leader come to roundtable rather rarely. If some bureaucrat
would make life hard for one of my den leader for having only 99.5%
correct uniform at a roundtable, I'd get my revenge and my den leaders
a good laugh.
By the way: You are totally in your right to wear tiger service star's when
you have been adult tiger partner. Just don't wear multiple service stars for
one single year of service...

Yes; we award a parent's pin in addition to the tiger graduate patch.
I always had this service star question which I was to timid to ask.
Can I add my 23 years of service to scouts of Switzerland to my meager
two stars for bsa service? Theoretically only; in praxis I am rather using
the quality unit patch and not service stars for bragging.
And one more remark about uniform. I whish the scout catalog would
be a little more clear what is uniform and what is fashion-ware. I'm tired
of hearing from cub leaders wearing a tee shirt with a scout lily on it "But
I'm wearing uniform". My pack does not issue insignia guides to all
leaders (there really is more important literature) and the catalog is the most
popular source of uniform wisdom.
