How to Wear Wood Badge Regalia

 

The Boy Scouts of America, "Guide to Awards and Insignia", 2018, Section 3 "Training Awards", page 56:

 

  Wood Badge beads

Two beads on thong, restricted, No. 2175; staff, three beads, restricted, No. 2176; course director, four beads, restricted, No. 2177; Scouters who have satisfactorily completed all phases. Worn only with official field uniform, not activity clothes, T-shirt, or dress blazer uniform. May be worn alone or with Wood Badge neckerchief, restricted, and woggle (slide), No. 2173, restricted. Worn under Wood Badge neckerchief and over the ends below the woggle.

  Wood Badge slide or woggle

Wood Badge slide or woggle, restricted, No. 22132173; trained Scouter, with Wood Badge neckerchief.

 

The "Guide to Awards and Insignia", is very clear:

You can only wear the neckerchief with the beads and woggle, and the official "field uniform". Some Scouters refer to the "field uniform" as the "Class A" uniform.

 

You MAY wear the beads without the neckerchief, only with official field uniform, not activity clothes, T-shirt, dress blazer uniform, or civilian clothes.

 

The woggle and neckerchief must always be worn together, and the beads must also be worn. The beads are worn under Wood Badge neckerchief and over the ends of the neckerchief below the woggle. No knot is tied in the tail of the neckerchief; it is itself a symbol of service.
