Here Are Team USA's Winter Olympics Uniforms Designed By Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren is out with Team USA’s Winter Olympics uniforms, and unlike last year, the apparel was actually manufactured in the U.S., reports the Associated Press.

Last year’s Olympic gear caused an uproar because most of the uniforms were made in China.

This year, Ralph Lauren — which has designed the Olympic uniforms since 2008 — was careful to only use U.S. manufacturers.

“We have worked incredibly hard as a company to go across America to find the best partners to help us produce the Olympic uniforms at the highest quality for the best athletes in the world,” company executive David Lauren told The AP.

Lauren said the company used materials from 40 different sources across the U.S., while the clothing was actually sewn in New York’s Garment District.

The ensemble includes a navy peacoat with a red stripe around the waist and a sweater with a reindeer motif and a hand-sewn American flag.

Here are some of Team USA’s athletes wearing the new gear:
