The Boy Scout Shirt

Boy Scout Shirt

A boy scout or cub scout shirt, is an embellished work shirt in blue, khaki or army green, traditionally worn by members of the boy scouts. They are traditionally made in America by the United Garment Workers of America and are usually decorated with merit badges and pins marking the achievements of the member.

Boy scout and cub scout shirts are ironically worn by men and women to say to the world “I’m super cool and a little nostalgic.”  Even the fashion house DSquared² has picked up on the look for their spring-summer 2010 collection, which is inspired by scout and camp wear.


Scoutskjortor (boy scout or cub scout shirts) är en arbetsskjorta med dekorationer i blå, khaki eller armegrön färg som traditionellt bärs av scoutmedlemmar. De görs traditionellt i Amerika av arbetskraft anslutna och är vanligtvis dekorerade med märken och nålar som visar vad scoutmedlemmen åstadkommit.

Lustigt nog så bärs scoutskjortor ofta av män och kvinnor för att visa världen att de är coola och lite nostalgiska.  Modehuset DSquared² har till och med för vår- och sommarsäsongen 2010 använt denna look (bilden) inspirerad just av scout- och campingkläder.
