Just let those that prefer these to wear them if they want and only if it's approved within the troop, which our troop btw would allow.
And there in lies the rub. BSA's Insignia Guide 2005, says that no one other than the National Executive Board has the authority to alter the uniform. So what a troop would "allow" really has no bearing on the matter.
At the tp of the first page of the Insignia Guide is a paragraph that should be shared with every parent and adult leader in every unit. It is entitled "Personal Committmemnt"
I will share the last paragraph and invite everyone to get a copy of the manual and read the first paragraph for it is very meaningful.
The last paragraph is as follows (the bold highlight was added by me.)
...The leaders of Scouting - both volunteer and professional - promote the wearing of the correct complete uniform on all suitable occassions.
The use of the uniform method of scouting is not about cost or fit...it is about "personal committment".
A person who does not yet have a complete uniform does not require the blessing of the troop to not wear what he does not have.
A person with a complete uniform has no need for the "troop" to give him an excuse to not wear it correctly.
How about instead of a unit altering what the uniform is, they put their effort into encouraging and aiding the scouts to obtain and wear a complete and correct uniform as is expected of them as leaders?
Something to consider...
