The countdown to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia is on!
Once again, American designer Ralph Lauren is the official outfitter for Team USA and has designed apparel athletes will wear during the closing ceremony parade. The uniforms will embody the pride of America with a red, white and navy color palette and other patriotic references.
Ralph Lauren also created a line of village wear for athletes that will be available to the public. It includes graphic tees, polos, gloves, hats, sweaters and more.
This time around, Team USA's parade uniforms are made in America. The designer drew harsh criticism in 2012 when it was discovered that parade outfits for the Olympics in London had been made in China.
