The Official Team USA Olympic Opening Ceremony Uniforms Are Here and They’re Classic AF
The summer 2016 Olympics are right around the corner, with the opening ceremony set for August 5 — are you all set for your viewing party? — and while we already knew the official uniforms were a prep-lovers dream, team USA revealed its opening ceremony looks on the Today Show, taking things to a whole other level.
With Carson Daly, Cliff Meidl and Sheinelle Jones on hand to model the look, the show gave the world its first glimpse of the getups Friday morning.
Featuring white pants, blue blazers and a red, white and blue tee, the uniforms certainly fit with designer Ralph Lauren’s aesthetic: The athletes could easily be headed off to a polo match instead of competition. To put it plainly? They’re yuppified to the max.
One cool focal point of the uniforms, however, is the illuminating flag bearer jacket (the first of its kind) which can be seen in the video the company posted below.
“[It] will literally light the way for Team USA as they represent our country,” Ralph Lauren’s son David said in a statement.
Love them or hate them, they’re certainly patriotic, and isn’t that what it’s really all about?
