They're also "official Scout terms", Ron, if your Council uses them as such.
And most local Councils *do* use the term "Class A", "B", "C",
and "D", with the "lower the letter, the more informal the wear is" thinking.

There's a "uniformity" which is taught to professionals and key volunteers
that have come about over years:
"A" - Complete field uniform, with neckerchief and hat (Troop decision),
in either long-sleeved and long-panted, or short-sleeved and shorts.
Merit badge sashes are worn by youth; awards and devices worn by adults.
"B" - Short-sleeved versions of field uniforms, without merit badge sash
and without the medals and devices. This is the "field uniform" of
Scouting, particularily for key volunteers and professionals.
"C" - Causal "activity uniform" (the "polo shirts" and matching tan shorts.
NOTE: YOU AREN'T SUPPOSED TO WEAR THE TAN SHORTS WITH THE TAN FIELD SHIRTS
AT ALL!!) or Troop-issued tees and tops, with the green shorts.
"D" - "Get Dirty" clothing....jeans, shorts, teeshirts, and other wear
designed to get grungy in...personal preference.
In many Council camp's programs, they will explain the "code" that they are
using, including localized teeshirts or other garments, and when they should
Many Troop's "welcome packets" will contain that same kind of information as
