    Eh. They are nothing special (a little too Ralph Lauren for me) but they seem better than some of our previous Summer Olympic gear. I usually like the Winter Olympic apparal much better.

    That's a good one.

    I like the uniforms. They're classy. You can never go wrong with a Navy Blue Blazer. I could do without the berets, though. That's just a little too French/Canadian for my taste.

    Definitely should have gone with fedoras instead of berets and lose the big Ralph Lauren logo in favor of something a little smaller. Although I'm certain Ralph Lauren paid lots of money to outfit the team, so they want their logo as visible as possible.

    Fedoras would have been a better choice for the headgear, though.

    I work with the mother of a US olympic bobsledder (not hard to figure out who, he won gold.) Ralph Lauren was selected (they made the best paying offer) to design and provide the uniforms for the opening cerimonies for the Vancouver olympics. These included a custom top and custom RL style white jean for the occasion. The day before the ceremony the Ralph Lauren representatives started distributing the uniforms to the athletes to use.

    Nobody in the Ralph Lauren organization was bright enough to figure one thing out. Ralph Lauren jeans are designed for metrosexual emo guys and bulimic women. Super skinny and super tight with no stretch. Suddenly, to late to do anything about it, they figured out that skinny jeans don't fit well on bobsledder, speed skaters, figure skaters, hockey players, skiers, or anyone who performs a sport where muscle development in the legs is an advantage. The bobsledder in question couldn't get the pant legs past his calf much less to and over the thigh.


    The uniforms looked great on malnurished models, the athletes wore coordinated sweatpants.

    For what they probably paid for the endorsement, someone should be fired for that - wow!

    They're not THAT bad. Honestly, if they could get rid of the berets, i'd be ok with them.

    Anybody but me notice the men's jackets are double breasted, while the women's are single? Is it a fashion faux pas for a woman to wear a double breasted jacket?

    They're stupid. Send our people out there in flop flops, cargo shorts, beer helmets and tshirts that say "Get ready to get your ass kicked in front of your whole ****** country!"

    America! **** Yeah!!
