*gasp* As opposed to everything else we buy?
why are they wearing gay french hats? that's my fucking question.
berets are terrible. only old ladies and frenchies wear them (aside from the military units that wear them, where they are also terrible).
the only proper US olympic hat:
This story might have been outrageous maybe 10 or 20 years ago. Nowadays it just seems par for the course.
Where are US Military uniforms made?
But the manufacturer can change every so often depending on the contracts i guess.
Im viewing this on my ipad. U mad op?
Yeah, I heard about the outrage by various politicians. I wonder if any of those scumbags realize that the Olympic team is privately funded, so shyster politicians don't get to decide what they wear.
This person is retarded. He/she actually works in the garment industry, and still doesn't realize that it's not about how much the clothes cost? Nike and Ralph Lauren are paying the US Olympic committee to have the athletes wear their gear, not the other way around, stupid.
I don't even think there is a sportswear company that makes its products in the US, let alone one that could afford to sponsor the Olympic team.
Also, it's NOT cheaper to make it in the u.s., why does she think they were contracted out to china in the first place? Fuck. Pretty much the only reason left for american goods is specifically because they're american. And i'm sure she wouldn't have minded getting the contract.
Those look like something out of a Robin Williams bit about a fashion designer making military uniforms. Yuck.
My issued ACU's were made in the DR, according to the tag. Not sure where my old woodland BDU's were made. I think the couple of extra pairs of ACU pants I bought when I needed them were made in the US, but for the life of me I have no idea where those are to check the tags.
Goods made in China are obviously cheaper to produce although that gap is closing faster than people think. The slant middle class is getting a bit smarter.
Although the Chinese government's idea of union negotiations is "you won't see him no more".
Because dental floss. AmIrite?
Such a non story. Are the Americans supposed to bring their own water for the pools too?
Those prices (and outfits) are inexcusable. Blazers shouldn't cost $700+ even with international shipping.
but it only cost .50 and a bowl of rice for some little kid to sew it all together.
You sir, are a god among men
Imagine if someone on the US team refused to wear the official ceremonial uniform, he / she would get a lot of attention for themself and would be a "hero" to a certain segment of the population
I could give a fuck less if they wore the uniform or not. They look like shit anway.
Everyone there worked hard for a chance to be at the Olympics. Why would they blow that for being "a hero to a certain segment of the population"?
Uniforms are bullshit.
US Olympic designer Ralph Lauren says future uniforms to be produced in US starting with 2014 Winter Games -
and by then all will be forgotten about this years hullabaloo
and we probably had an obligation to buy from the chinks as I am sure the money we are spending for the whole olympic team is borrowed from them
The money who spent on them? The Olympic committee is privately funded.
Not to bring up an obvious point, but, How much gear the USA athletes are using/wearing when competing is USA made????
