You might think after more than a hundred years, we as Scouters would have mastered the basics of uniforming. If so, you would be wrong!

One of the persistent questions people ask about the Scout uniform is whether the shirt must be tucked in. As of this month, there’s a clear answer:

Effective Oct. 1, 2013, the official stance on the Boy Scouts of America’s uniform policy is that shirts are to be worn tucked in, regardless of whether the wearer is a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, Venturer or adult Scouter. All Sea Scout uniforms are designed to be tucked in except youth dress whites and youth dress blues.

In the past, guidelines have simply stated the uniform wearer should be neat in appearance. Neatness includes tucking in the shirt. This update will appear in related resources, such as the uniform inspection sheets, as they are revised and printed.

So there you have it. Now you can tell your Scouts to tuck those shirt tails in!
