These don’t excite me.
When these were unveiled yesterday, everybody was all crazy about it. I looked at it and just was like “meh” to the new USA hockey jerseys. It in fact is an homage to the 1932 sweaters.
I don’t understand what the great celebration was for this set. The fact that the blue and white sets aren’t even symmetrical makes it hard for me to like it. Then you add on the fake stars and fake collar lace and you really have a boring, unimaginative set.
(I will give them props for their collar paying homage to their two gold medal teams, but none of us will see it when the players hit the ice.)
I suppose the blue one is a little bit better in my eyes, but not really. It’s just boring. I’m not a fan. And that logo, where have I seen it before? Of course, now I remember!
Russia’s looks better, but the non-symmetry still bothers me.
These outfits look OK.
Here’s the official information on the outfit:
Ralph Lauren, three time outfitter of the U.S. Olympic team, unveiled the uniforms athletes will don during the Opening Ceremony on July 27 in London.
Calling it an “updated take on old-world elegance,” David Lauren, son and executive vice president to Ralph Lauren, told the “Today” show the aim was to achieve a classic look that would look good on all athletes, from wrestlers to gymnasts.
The outfits consists of a white cotton sport shirt with a red and navy necktie under a double-breasted blazer for men, and a cream skirt with a white blouse under a red and navy scarf and a navy blazer for women. All athletes will also sport berets. More casual outfits were prepared for atheletes to wear within the Olympic Village.
I think it looks OK. It was inspired by the 1948 outfits worn to the Olympics in London. A part of me keeps thinking it’s French yet another part of me feels like they’re all stewardesses.
The jacket and tie look fine, but I feel that they just got off a yacht and are on their way to the annual polo festival.
What do you think of this outfit?
