Boy Scouts of America define two categories of uniforms:
- Class A
- Class B
Class A uniforms consist of:
- Khaki Scout uniform shirt with patches properly attached
- Pants or shorts (typically blue jeans)
Tuck in your shirttail.
All patches (U.S. Flag, Sam Houston Area Council, Troop numerals, rank, office, and other miscellaneous) should be properly placed and securely attached. Boy Scouts are identified with red shoulder loops.
Class A uniforms are worn to and from campouts, at Court of Honors, to dinner and specific activities during Summer Camp, at Scout Fair, at Merit Badge Fairs, and other special events during the year. For normal troop meetings, the uniform shirt and solid-color pants are sufficient.
Class B uniforms are Boy Scout t-shirts, preferably the Troop t-shirt, or from a Scout activity or organization. Class B uniforms can be worn after arriving at a campout, or during meetings when fitness tests are held.
