So USA and Ralph Lauren just unveiled the USA Olympic Team Uniform.

WTF? Not only are they hideously and overly preppy looking like an Equestrian Team more then an Olympic Team, but did nobody from the design team notice what happened when the blazers where put on? The public sure did within minutes of them being released.

Perhaps actually sizing them and providing uniforms that fit would be a good start to fixing that picture. Fack those are bad and unprofessional.

Single breasted blazer, gold buttons, high water, tight fit pants, and boat shoes?

So dressing like a WASPY Hamptonite is how we're going to present ourselves to the world.

Why not pink above the knee shorts and a sweater wrapped around the neck too?

Great job, Polo and USOC.

It is all about marketing Polo and their look. Money rules the world. If Polo gives the USOC big bucks so we can support our athletes better then that is how it is going to be. The alternative is the athletes get less money, have to work more and would end up training less.

It sucks, but that's life.

I think it's supposed to look like some kind of fashion, I just don't know what kind.

If they're gonna make money from this you'd thing they could drop a few bucks on some more fabric and time to make something that fits.

Lol. The USA on the back of the jackets and the emblem apparently light up using some sort of voltage reactive fabric.

Why are you the only one that noticed it when i even posted a pic of the Russian flag under the photo. These uniforms look more like a Russian then USA, if I didn't know this was the USA team I would totally think it was the Russian team. Guess we are supporting them during their scandal.

Yeah, but why does the "costume" have to make the US look like a bunch of twats?
