Ralph Lauren, Olympics 2008

The prologue to this year’s Olympic Games has been nothing short of eventful with headlines about the notorious so called “Olympic thugs” and China’s relationship with Tibet. Fashionistas who have kept a distance from the political turmoil can finally find some sense of grace in this, thanks to good news involving Ralph Lauren.

RL have taken on the task of commissioning the attire which the American athletes will be wearing at the opening and closing ceremony of the Olympics. With long history designing sports attire for “finer” sports like tennis, golf and polo very few other American designer posses the same skills in creating formal sports attire like RL. Below is a sketch of a very classy summer outfit that they boys will be wearing. The potential imposture out there who might plan on sneaking into the stadium to parade with the American team might be glad to know that the clothes will be made available to the public for purchase.
