In our troop, the PLC has the authority to make uniforming decisions. We
have a troop neckerchief, which the PLC has said will be worn during all
formal occasions (BOR's, COH's, While serving on a Color Guard, Etc.) While
traveling, all Scouts are supposed to wear their neckerchief, but the PLC
gave those Scouts that have reached Star rank the option of wearing a bolo
tie instead. Yes, the PLC should set the example, but they should also set
the policy. When Scouts write the rules they have less tendency to break them.
