Nylon pants & Alpine style knit sweater for US contingent

Jan '06
Roots, the official designer company for the 2006 US Olympic team that will don team uniforms and other wears; calls the overall look "retro futurism".

High-technology fabrics and uniforms of the 1956 Games in Cortina are blended, said Michael Budman, Co-Founder of Roots.

Uniforms for opening and closing parades comprise an Alpine-style knit navy sweater with a nylon front panel in white, with swaths of two lighter shades of blue, and a small Olympic logo patch on one side.

Combining formal style and snowboards pants, Budman wants to create the parade pants from nylon.

Players' uniform's base layer is made of white polyester mock turtleneck inspired by Italian cycling jerseys and 1970s American downhill racing suits.

To design the uniforms to suit local climate and style, designer of collection stayed in Turin for long time, said Budman.

Fascinated by the lettering of classic Ducati motorcycle paraphernalia, the designer created piping font for the USA logo on T-shirts, sweatshirts, berets and scarves, among other pieces.

The Olympic Village track jacket for players during no-play-time, is similar to two-tone blue design of parade sweater, this time on a navy brushed tricot polyester background with a white waistband and collar and red trim.

The thermal-hooded sweatshirt has a zip front, kangaroo pouch pocket and an extra-large embroidered USA logo on the back.
