Who knew Olympic uniforms could spark such controversy?! Every since the first images of Ralph Lauren’s United States Team uniforms for the 2012 London Olympics were revealed, people all over the Internet have been griping about something or another. Whether it be the beret or the fact that the uniforms were being manufactured in China, this has not been a good few weeks for the sporty red white and blue looks, which we actually think are pretty cute, in a yachting in the Hamptons kind of way. In an interview with The New York Post, American Apparel head honcho Dov Charney jumped into the mix, saying, through a rep, that AA would be happy to turn around American-made uniforms using Ralph Lauren’s design in as few as seven days if the designer wanted.
American Apparel is looking to get into the Olympic uniform game SOMEHOW, whether it’s for this Olympics or the 2014 winter games. The company is in talks with the Olympic organizers in Russia to design the country’s uniforms for 2014. Why Russia, you ask? The nation is looking to avoid manufacturing their uniforms in China, an AA rep tells the Post.
Do you think American Apparel should manufacture the US Olympic uniforms for this year’s games?
