The following was posted to Scouts-L on Oct 7th 2007 by Jay Lenrow under the Subject heading "New Uniform - Update":

Yesterday at the National Meetings in Irving, I had the opportunity to
actually see the prototype of the new uniform. I can report that the
colors have not changed. The shirt is still desert tan but it is made
of a quick dry fabric. The epaulets have remained but the tabs for Boy
Scouts will now be a muted green color. On the left sleeve, there is a
bellows pocket with a flap where the position patch goes. The troop
numerals have a tan background with darker tan numbers. I could not
tell if the patch is held on by velcro or not. Each of the chest
pockets is a bellows type pocket with velcro closures. The overall look
was very understated which made the colorful CSP and OA flap look
somewhat out of place.

The pants are an update of the switchback pants. Each leg has a large
bellows type pocket with velcro closures. It is hard to tell but
because of the size of the pocket, the zipper for the leg bottoms
appears to be at or below the knee.

It was unclear whether this was the actual new uniform or a work in
progress. It was explained to me that this change came from National
Supply, which has the authority to tweak the current uniform. A radical
makeover (e.g. changing the colors) would have to come from the Boy
Scout Committee.
