Big news in the Olympic sphere today and yesterday as it’s come through the wire that these interesting double-breasted, wanna-be-sailor, are-those-French-hats, Ralph Lauren outfits that our superhero Olympic men and women will be dawning this year have been produced in China. Very sneaky, China. Way to get in out heads. Apparently Mr. Lauren and his troop of horse riding thread weavers has promised to remake these outfits in the United States. But with these things costing $1,945 for men’s uniforms and $1,463 for women’s how much could have been saved shipping them overseas? Either way, Next time Mr. Lauren should consider just ripping the little “Made In China” tag out and stapling in a Post-It with MADE IN USA!!!! scrawled upon it. At least it’d look legit.
Side note: who knew Trampoline was an Olympic sport? that backflip you mastered in 4th grade could’ve come in handy in this economy.
