This is probably the least related to any of the topics that I normally go with, however being a former Scouts Canada kid I thought this was very interesting and IS design related. Fashion design that is. This new style has a main benefit to it that I didn’t get wearing the old uniform when I was younger. FLEXIBILITY and the ability to run around without restriction. Yes, I was one of those kids that liked to run around and climb things. I think the downside to this new uniform is the fact that, well, it doesn’t look like a uniform! It’s casual, dress-down style doesn’t lend the the kids the concept of discipline like the old one does. Not to mention, “Where will they put their badges?

What do you think? Out with the old and in with the new?
