Where do all the patches go?
Need a quick reference to what the typical Cub Scout uniform looks
like? How about where all of the patches go?
This page is meant to show pictures and give guidelines to help those
doing the sewing. Also, if you have someone else sewing for you,
send them here for a quick "look see"
Cub Scout might not have all of the patches these two guys do, but
you can see the general placement of the Den number, patches, so

Parts of the Uniform
The parts that make up your Cub Scout uniform are these:
- The Cub Scout shirt, with long
or short sleeves
- Cub Scout shorts or trousers
- A cap that shows your rank in
Cub Scouting—orange for Tiger Cub, yellow for Wolf Cub Scout, blue
for Bear Cub Scout, and plaid for Webelos Scout
- A neckerchief that matches the
color of your cap
- A blue belt with a brass buckle
- Official blue socks with orange
or gold tops (orange tops for Tiger Cubs; gold or yellow tops for
all other ranks)
Because Webelos Scouts are close to
becoming Boy Scouts, some Webelos dens choose to wear the tan and
olive uniform similar to the one that Boy Scouts wear (tan shirt,
olive shorts/slacks, olive socks).
Patches, Pins, and Medals
Besides showing that you are a
member of the Cub Scouts, your uniform gives you a place to display
your personal achievements and those of your den and pack. Badges of
rank, award emblems, special recognitions, and the medals you win at
Cub Scout activities are all sewn or pinned onto your uniform.
Wearing the Uniform
Unless your den leader says
otherwise, you should wear your Cub Scout uniform to all Scouting
activities—not only den and pack meetings, but every activity in
which you take part with other Cub Scouts.
