    Canadian Olympic Uniforms

    We will be the laughing stock of the games. The clothing is absolutely hideous not to mention the fact that it was made in China. Why we can't produce clothing in our own country for our athletes is a mystery to me other than it's probably a hell of a lot cheaper to make it over seas.

    "Made In Canada" has gone the way of "Made In America"... Along with that, the ability to be self-reliant... Sales and service is not an industry that will keep our economies afloat, but as long as those in our governments are not being affected directly in their wallets (or ballots), they won't give a shit...

    Dear God...It looks like a bad Santana wardrobe malfunction; crossed with an acid tripping Zepplin dream; combined with horrid Sgt. Pepper's barf-fest.

    Jeeees...overweight guys from all over are now delighted that Zubaz pants have finally come back into fashion, as part of a pajama ensemble.

    And what is with that vaguely samurai looking headband?

    As if there wasn't enough controversy over the Beijing games themselves, now we've got shitty uniforms to go along with it!

    I can't disagree with the first part of your post.....but...

    Funny because now I believe your American Olympic clothing is now being made....by what was originally a CANADIAN CLOTHIER......it's called Roots

    Yup, the winter Olympic uniforms were designed in Canada...I loved those berets.



    This year, the summer Olympic uniforms will be designed by Ralph Lauren...possibly a decision to avoid the backlash of the Roots story.

    The US uniforms are the opposite of the Canadians this year ... "tasteful" to the point of boredom. Lots of white walking shorts (!) white polo shirts with red and blue banding (shown with the collor turned up no less) and sweater vests over shirts and neckties. Just the sort of thing to get you beat up on any middle school playground. Didn't see any footwear, but I'll bet it's deck shoes with no socks.

    American designed but you can bet they were made by the tiny little hands of Phillipino child laborers.
