Polo Ralph US Olympic Team Parade Outfits unveiled
Aug '08
The Official Opening Ceremony Parade Outfits of the U.S. Olympic Team debuted in Beijing. As American athletes took to the stage during the commencement celebration, the Polo Ralph Lauren 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Parade Outfits were officially unveiled to spectators around the world.

Inspired by the rich past of the Olympic Games, and in keeping with the time-honored tradition of this historic event, Polo Ralph Lauren brings an elegant and contemporary style to the U.S. Olympic Team. Reflecting the brand's trademark sporty sophistication and refined sensibility, the Opening Ceremony uniforms evoke the heritage and legacy of the 1920's and 1930's.

Featuring a polished and tailored silhouette, the ensemble is comprised of a crisp white cotton shirt and ivory cuffed pants, complemented by a timeless navy blue blazer in tropical wool, adorned with the iconic Polo Pony and the 2008 U.S. 'Look of the Team' logo.

The chic outfits are accented by Americana-infused accessories with red, white and blue silk ties and scarves and classic canvas sneakers with red and blue lateral stripes, topped off with a white twill hat.

In addition to designing the Official Opening Ceremony Parade Outfits for the U.S. Olympic Team, Polo Ralph Lauren has also created their Closing Ceremony Parade Outfits, as well as an assortment of village wear pieces.

The 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games will be celebrated from August 8-24, with an estimated four billion viewers watching global-televised coverage, which is expected to be the largest audience ever to view the Olympic Games.
