Getting your uniform...........
The first thing you're going to want to do is buy your shirt, belt and basic patches. These three things will apply to Tigers, Wolfs, Bear Scouts and Webelos. Webelos have the same basic patches but their shirt and belt is different.
1.) For the Cub Scouts shirt we recommend the basic blue short sleeve cub scout shirt.
Keep in mind when buying this shirt that it needs to make it through first, second
and third grade. Once in fourth and fifth grade, their shirt will change to the Webelos basic
beige short sleeve shirt. The Webelos shirts come in two different types of material Cotton and Polyester Microfiber. Prices will vary.
2.) Scouts belt, allow room to grow. Click on pictures for link.

3.) There are four patches you need to get started that apply to Cub Scouts and Webelos. Simon Kenton Council Patch that is placed on the left shoulder. World Scout Crest Emblem goes above the left side pocket. And the Unit Numbers "7" and "1". Where to place these patches on the uniform is discussed here Patch Placement.
