…Or why was JB uniform so popular? The last thread was a little heavy so I thought this was could be a bit more lighthearted. There is no other way of saying it. Whether you like it or not the Jeff Banks uniform is iconic. It was a shift away from the previous uniform and certain elements are very “of their time”. The debate over and inclusion of a baseball cap may arguably be responsible for a hat no longer being a part of Guiding uniform. The uniform seems to be popular to the extent that only in the last two years or so have CHQ stopped putting reminders that JB has ceased being official/appropriate uniform in the essentials catalogue(2009 it stopped being acceptable?). Lots of leaders still wear pieces in a way that apparently didn’t happen as much as previous uniform change overs. What made it so popular that even now leaders want to still wear it regularly?
