  1. German team looks like their in pajamas, Italian is classic but a bit boring, I think Sheldon Cooper might have designed the Norway ones 😛 so my pick is Poland! (do people regularly joke that polar bears are from Poland? I’ve never heard that 😕 ) but then again, I’m one of the few who actually like Richard’s sweater, so…

  2. Ralph really got busy with the ‘stars and stripes’ theme, didn’t he?- with emphasis on the word ‘busy’!
    Couldn’t find any images for the Australian one- some variant of our usual green and gold no doubt. Not really our strong suit, the Winter Olympics for some reason….

  3. And the first medal for the 2014 Winter Olympics goes to … Poland (so far!). 🙂 Classy and tasteful, polar bears or not. I am sure we can find one or two if we look long enough.

  4. Haven’t read the replies yet, but this photo of RA always throws me. Not because I don’t like the sweater but the greenery in the background. Dumb move by the photographer.

  5. The US uniform is quite the amalgam of design. Perhaps he couldn’t decide and used all of his ideas?

    But the main thing for the athletes out in the freezing cold is–will it keep me warm? Let’s hope it does that, sartorial issues aside. Ha!

  6. First impression: WT@#$% ?; Second the impression: Is there a variant of, oh IDK, Mad Cow (or something) that is only striking the designers of the world? (If so, where can I contribute to help it end this fashion disaster ASAP?) OK, I get the message/context, but why punish the athletes, viewers & countries w/equivalent of bridesmaid’s dress chosen by insecure & vindictive bridezilla? (long sigh) “Classic, understated” look @ Olympics is apparently going to be the shiny (clashing) Day-Glo spandex bodysuits worn by (Jamaican?) bobsledders in the ’80s… Can’t. Hardly. Wait.

  7. I love the Polish ones, and I like the white Armani one, but as for the rest! I hope my eyes don’t bleed while I’m watching the opening ceremonies.

  8. We had a ugly Christmas sweater day at school before the break, all because of the commercial. Are the Olympics trying to do there own take on it? As I said up in the comments, love the Polish ones.
