RL_vancouver.jpgIt’s out with the stetsons and in with the alpine hats for U.S. Olympians, who next Friday will parade into Vancouver’s 60,000-seat BC Place Stadium dressed in Ralph Lauren‘s just unveiled opening ceremonies ensemble. Polo Ralph Lauren, an official outfitter of the 2010 U.S. Olympic Team, will dress the athletes in down puffer jackets, chunky cable-knit turtleneck sweaters, fleece pants, and rugged alpine boots, topped with tasseled wool and alpaca hats woven with moose, trees, an American flag, and the Polo logo. Meanwhile, for the February 28 closing ceremonies, Polo is returning to the 1920s vibe that brought berets to Beijing. In Vancouver, there will be more berets, along with toasty shawl cardigan sweaters stamped with a giant Polo pony and the Olympic team logo. Armchair athletes can purchase their very own versions of all the Olympic uniforms at Polo.com.
