RALPH ALL THE WAY
The US team has fashion icon Ralph Lauren as their outfitter. The Ralph Lauren 2012 Olympic Collection features reissued heritage pieces from the 1930s and 1940s, including fleece warm- ups, a cricket- collar shirt and sweatshirts with USA appliqués featuring an updated 1948 crest. The colour palette matches the country’s flag— red, white and blue. In addition, newsboy caps are making quite a statement this Olympic season. Trust the US to take patriotic fervour to extremes. Angered at uniforms being made in China, Senator Bernie Sanders said: " When millions are unemployed in the US, why aren’t our Olympic uniforms being made here?"
