Scouts attending Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review need to come in full class A, with their merit badge sash, neckerchief and slide.
All Scouts should come to Court of Honors - COH in full class A.
For Class A Uniforms, all patches should be current and in the correct place, see the photos below.

Merit badge sash and any medals earned are not needed for normal Troop meetings.

Long blue jeans and shoes or boots are Class A Uniform in Troop 373.

A BSA Scout Belt is worm with the long blue jeans, if a brass BSA belt, the belt should be adjusted so the brass buckle is just touching the brass end piece.

All Scouts should purchase the longer sash, unless you are sure your scout will no grow should you purchase the shorter 30" sash. If you fill the front of the sash, the patches then start up the back from the bottom. No non-merit badge patches may go on the back or front.  Merit Badges are award at COHs.
FYI, the Eagle Scout required merit badges have a silver boarder. The Sash is worm for formal occasions like to COH, Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review. Also to community Color Guard events. The sash goes on the right shoulder.
