This may sound a little harsh, but in our troop the only shirt that is
acceptable,when T-shirts are allowed,is either our troop shirt or a
scout shirt of any kind,or a plain white shirt (this means absolutely
no markings).The patrols are counted off for no uniformity so this helps
push the troop T-shirt.
