Perhaps this topic belongs in sports but I do think this will be a controversial topic so I put it here.

Basically, the US Olympic team will not be wearing Red, White and Blue at the closing ceremonies. They will be wearing all white clothes designed by Ralph Lauren. Personally, I think this is bullspit and pretty ugly anyway. This is clearly Lauren flaunting HIS brand and not the US as a whole.

The belts are red, white, and blue.

I file this under my "who cares?" category.

OOOOOHHHH, the belts are Red, White and Blue. It's not enough. Lots of people care, look at the comments it has generated so far. All against the color scheme.

Besides. In this "Anti-corporate" world people want to live in, shouldn't they be pissed that the logo of the corporation is much larger than the flag of the country they are supposed to represent?

Nice looking North Korean uniforms.

I would not be surprised if they are made in China.

If they are made in the U.S.A. I'll eat my hat.

Considering you could buy a shirt like this anywhere....... The oversized logo is ridiculous and the all white certainly doesn't look representative of the US.

Overloading every available surface with advertising is actually fairly representative of the US.
