The USA and French teams look sharp.

The main theme for those wearing traditional clothing is blazers. Notice how much better these look in a sporting context. Compare with the Netherlands team, which although wearing piping on their jackets, are wearing matching trousers in a suit fashion.

Pretty cool. I like the white (mother of pearl?) buttons. Wonder if I could wear a blazer with MOP buttons and get away with it...

You can get yours too:

Nearly 200 jackets will be available for $695 after the opening ceremony at RalphLauren.com and at Ralph Lauren stores; Lauren expects they'll sell out this weekend. Former President George H.W. Bush-the US team's honorary captain and the grandfather of Lauren's girlfriend, Lauren Bush (hey if they marry, she'll be Lauren Lauren!)-is getting his own opening ceremony uniform, the blazer embroidered with his POTUS 41 title. "Whether he wears it or not, we'll find out," Lauren says.

The hats are ok....

they give the US outfits a kind of Gatsby look which is understandably American. But why only have the girls wearing ascots? Since the ascots are not needed to differentiate sex in these unisex outfits, I think all team members wearing ascots would have been better. Or is the uniform designer trying to say ascots are a more feminine attire?

I'd rather spend $695 on something else, despite that they LOOK cool. The embroidery is too much for wearing it out of context.

The flat caps looked a bit "aren't we cool".
The caps are unfortunate as is the RL pony logo. I wonder if the U.S. is the only country with a commercial logo on their uniforms.

I think the French have us beat on style points, although I find the inclusion of handbags for the ladies a bit strange, although I know enough about ladies handbags to know I don't know anything about ladies handbags.

Cheers, Jim.

The UK commentators suggested Ireland and Italy were the best of the bunch. But I did not see them. I did hear that John Rocha was involved in the Irish design and that the Italians wore silver shoes.

I like flat caps. Same function as baseball caps, but look better. :)

They look way better IF they are of a reasonable size. The ones they are wearing are almost cartoonish (did I just invent a word) due to their size.

Cheers, Jim.
I agree actually... but they're still a big improvement over baseball caps IMO.
