I, for one, was sad to see BSA authorize Webelos to wear the tan shirt. All through life special occasions are marked by the purchase of a new outfit. First day of school, first communion, prom, etc. Being able to purchase that tan uniform shirt for that first Troop meeting made it all that more special to the boys. But no one asked my opinion. Our Pack has always just brought a Webelos scout into the Tiger room and said "picture your son this size and buy your shirt accordingly". We have Tigers and Wolves with shirts down to their knees, but most make it to graduation with one uniform.
