RALPH ALL THE WAY

India Today - - SPORTS -

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?"
