    America's Olympic Uniform



    Yeesh.


    Leaving aside the too-short double-breasted blazer with gold buttons, is there anyone besides Ralph Lauren who thinks that Team USA should wear berets?

    And wear crap that is not made in the USA?

      It's a good thing the Olympics don't offer a medal for style.

        If they did, at least we wouldn't lose to China.

            Fantastic. Thank you, US Olympic Team, your uniform has made my going-out-for-groceries outfit come across as derivative.

              The fact these uniforms are made in China is a disgrace.

                bah, most of the sportswear for the Olympics is probably MIC...so China has already won the Olympics.

                  No wonder 20% of americans can't find steady work or work at all. Even the sponsors for USA are foreign like BMW. I miss the Old America. Now everything is made cheaply and out of material that will give us all cancer one day. This is unbelievable. The sad part is this has been going on for previous olympics too. And even sadder all of the politicians are pouncing on this news to look like they care even though they did nothing to change this practice in the past.

                    You guys disappoint me.


                    What's more American than to buy things made in China!? I'm looking around my living room here and am hard pressed to find anything NOT made in China. Okay, my wife's blood diamond was probably from Africa. I stand corrected.

                      Trust me, I agree that this is ludicrous. However, it's easy to wax nostalgic for a time in American history that never existed. More products used to be made here but that didn't ensure quality or safety for anyone, especially those at the bottom.

                        @ greg_s - Actually, products used to be higher quality than they are today, but mostly because we didn't live in today's "throwaway" society - products were built as investments to be repaired and refurbished as necessary rather than replaced after falling out of style.


                        I understand people's disappointment, but I am already so disenchanted about the Olympics that, to me, this incident is not really an embarrassing aberration, but a fairly typical illustration of the overall commercialization of the event. These days, everything about the Olympics is about money. Athletic achievement and international relations are an afterthought to all the sponsorships, merchandising, and advertising.

                          So people on this forum have issues with Chinese made products, and yet users on this site buy crappy brands like GAP, BR, etc that make products in China. And on top of that, the users on this site ridicule Style Forum users for spending a little extra cash on EU and US made clothes.


                          Now that is classic!!!!

                            @ amathew - There is a difference in buying foreign-made stuff when you're strapped for cash and trying to redo your wardrobe, and buying foreign-made stuff when you're Ralph Effing Lauren designing clothing that will be worn by elite athletes representing the country in front of an audience of billions at the most anticipated international spectacle in the world.


                            I would have thought that was obvious, though.

                              Oh yeah, that's right, when the CEO of a multinational in Finland sees that American athletes at the Olympics are wearing chinese made garbage at the opening ceremony, he's going to become anti-american and decide never to do business in the US. Yeah, totally forgot about that.
