Have You Seen the Tacky Hip-Hop Uniforms Team USA has been Saddled with at Sochi 2014?
Reaganite Republican ^ | 23 January 2014 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 01/23/2014 8:44:07 AM PST by Reaganite Republican

Crowning achievement in Obama's comprehensive 
international humiliation of the United States is here-
good reason not to smile

Designed by Ralph Lauren, the opening-cermony uniforms released today are garish, undignified, and downright embarrassing-
or am I silly for somehow expecting them expecting to look like impressive grown-ups?







To top it off, he's got 'RL' on every single item,
and the sweater says 'Polo' rather than 'USA'...


Don't forget the goofy hat...

Raided the Biebs closet. I call those hats turds catchers as they always look to have a load in them.

Yikes! It’s like an Abercrombie and Fitch catalog on Quaaludes.

I thought the US Flag Code specified that the Stars and Stripes should not be used as part of an athletic uniform?

I see those uniforms and I think of Slapshot....

Jim Ahern: I look like some c--------- faggot!

Johnny Upton: I'm gonna flash them, Joe!

Joe McGrath: Aw jeez, son...

Johnny Upton: Yes I am! I'm gonna walk down that stinkin' aisle, and open this faggot bathrobe and wiggle my ---- at 'em!

Joe McGrath: You WILL not.

Johhny Upton: Yes I am, Joe, and you know why? Because I want you to have a heart attack and die so that we never have to do this ---- again. You and your -----' fashion shows.

Joe McGrath: It's good publicity! You boys just haven't been bringing in the crowds like you used to.

Johnny Upton: I'm telling you, ya better be prepared, because when I yank it out, everybody in that audience with the exception of my wife is gonna be runnin' for the exits!

The sweat pants in the socks with the, god I don’t know whats on their feet look isn’t cutting it. Looks like an outfit someone would wear, while sitting in front of a fireplace, drinking a hot chocolate and discussing Obamacare.

I have just written the U.S. Olympics Committee about how embarrassed I am by the hip-hop gangsta uniforms created for our Olympic team. I have also asked if they're going to be issuing a Saturday Night Special to each athlete.

And I especially noted Ralph Lauren's contribution.

It is categorically inappropriate for a standard uniform that is to be worn by athletes representing the United States to promote the brand name of a commercial business. To make it even worse, the brand is very large and prominently displayed. In the pullover sweater it is the focal point of the design.

LOL,, those aren’t even remotely close to “hip hop gangsta”, badly designed hipster but definitely not hip hop. FWIW Lauren is a Republican and his been called a racist from time to time. I don’t know what happened here though.

Yep, the uniforms look VERY "Ralph Lauren". They reek of his style. But, things could be worse. The uniforms could look like this:

I like them - sort of a patchworky theme. Patchwork is culturally very much a part of Americana, implying thriftiness, creativity and homemaking; not bad values IMO.

That said, a big ZERO for the polo logo in the middle of the sweater. It’s tacky!

Sweater picture - I didn’t realize that polo could be played while riding a moose. That must be because it’s a winter Olympics sport. :=)

When I first looked at this, I thought the RL was for Right Leg, to help them put on the pants correctly.
