    Wasn’t Toby’s uniform polo shirt white? (No, I don’t really care about a very minor detail as that one, I’m just curious.)

    Street smarts doesn’t come from watching TV . It comes from being in the streets for a long time.

    I didn’t include Toby’s school ‘uniform’ on my character sheet, so Joey’s free to make those choices. If we’re trying to relate it to some reality or other, though, we can say that Toby’s school colors are read and gold, and he could therefore wear a white polo, red polo or yellow polo. (My own kids can wear white, green or grey that gets called silver)

    Or we could go with capnLaz and just say, "The warm red makes the character pop off the cool blue/green of the background.

    Either answer suffices.

    My daughters wear white, my one son green, yellow or blue and my youngest son blue, white or black.

    @Greg and @Shygirl27
     
    Thanks, that was very informative.   See, what seems like irrelevant trivia to most turns out to be fascinating to borderline OCD chaps like me.

    It seems pretty darn fascinating to us when we’re hunting all over town at the last minute trying to find hunter green polo shirts enough for the school year.

    It’s too dangerous on the streets – I’ll stick to TV for street smarts. (TV smarts? – doesn’t work.)

    At our old school, my kids could wear white, red, light blue or dark blue, but NOT green. We got in trouble for wearing a green polo to school. At our new school, the expensive embroidered polo shirts come in about six different colors and green is one of them.

    Is everyone talking about parochial school here? I went to public school, and I’ve never heard of a school that had rules about what colors students can or cannot wear. (I have heard of school uniforms, but I thought those were always in identical colors.)

    My kids go to a public school that currently doesn’t have a uniform, but they have been discussing it. We have friends who go to a public school that DOES have a uniform code, and they say it is great since the kids always know what to wear in the mornings and there isn’t a visible social/economic disparity within the student body, like there had been previously. No more “keeping up with the Joneses” mentality.

    Yep. My kids are in a public school system that does the school uniform thing. It does weed out the “Mom, I HAVE to have the $75 shirt… EVERYONE has them!” crud. It also leads to some really bizarre socks being bought around town. All for the best, I’m sure you agree.

    What happens, for instance, to a family that can’t afford the NEW “this year” uniform stuff? (i.e. slight changes in design, colour, tapering etc.). They have to send their kids in someone other persons “hand me downs”… I’d have been THAT kind of kid, and would have felt worse then if I had to wear WalMart clothes.
    “Oh, look at Allan. He’s got someone elses pants. How sad, he’s so poor.” (Trust me, I’ve heard THAT before!)
