This is one of my favorite AGOT outfits. It is truly a unique “activity outfit” and is a nice diversion from the dance, gymnastics and sports outfits. The outfit comes with shorts, long-sleeved shirt, vest, belt, pouch that attaches to belt, socks with a GS logo and brown loafers. This outfit not only contains a lot of pieces, but it’s also very durable. After almost 12 years, my sets still looks like new.
Although, the “patches” on the vest aren't actual patches, the appliqués have stayed on and look like new. I enjoy looking at the little patches. The shorts fit nicely and are large enough for chubbier dolls. The top is quite versatile and also looks nice with jeans/overalls etc. The shoes are very similar to Molly’s roller skating shoes, but are faux suede and a little more structured.
I would strongly recommend this set. I know there are some non-AG sets out there, but this one appears to be superior to some of the others. It especially looks nice on AGOT#10 and AGOT#19-2

I got mine on eBay a while back, and unfortunately it didn't come with shoes and socks. But what is there is great. Fits great on PM dolls, and isn't too big on Mattel dolls either. Wendy (PM AGOT 12) is wearing this at the moment with the shoes and socks from the Plaid skirt and sweater outfit.
I love the GS outfit, it matched the one I had in 1994, haha. My dolls don't wear it much anymore, but it got quite a lot of use in the 90s. I love the shoes that came with mine-- mine had the fuzzy loafers (like were in the catalog pictures of the time), not the smooth ones that are pictured above (and which my sister and our two friends also got... for some reason, I'm the only one who got the fuzzy ones). I'll try to post a picture at some point.

I got this outfit in February of 2010, from a grey market Singapore seller on eBay. My outfit seems to be identical to the ones others have featured - same patches, same details, except mine did not come with shoes. It did come with plain white socks - I don't know if authentic versions had little green flags on the sides or not.
I love the outfit - I was surprised that AG had used decals on the vest, but they're sturdily applied even on my knockoff and they have nice detail. As a former Scout, I heartily approve this outfit.
I do want to add something for new buyers though:
The shirt on mine is tagged "Pleasant Company," even though I know I bought it on the grey market. The seller admitted that she buys her stuff from a factory that is still producing these retired outfits. I think the quality is very good (the stitching is a little crude, but serviceable), and I am more than satisfied, BUT if authenticity is important to you, be VERY careful about who you buy from on eBay.

My stepsister was in Girl Scouts, and this was one of the first outfits she got for her modern doll. I got it when she gave me her dolls and their outfits. I like it. I was never in Girl Scouts and can't vouch for the authenticity, but the shorts, shoes, and shirt are all great mix-and-match pieces. The vest still has all the little patches. The socks are the only things missing. Otherwise, the outfit is in great shape.
