The official staff uniform looks like it came out of the less popular sequel Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Paintball-Damaged Patchwork Quilt.

That article is from July of 2012. The winter team uniforms are made in the USA.

Those outfits aren't just loud -- they're seizure-inducing!

Here is the link to Nike's 'training gear and olympic village' outfits. A lot of their items can be purchased on Nike's website. I like the hoodies.
So I'm a little miffed with Nike. They have this fabulous site showing me all the really cute Olympic gear that I can buy. One problem, the really cute USOC sweatshirt that is on the site is not available when you click the shop this gear link. They are showing probably 50 items in the womens section and yet actually only have 9 of them for sale. What's that all about?

Instead of China, they apparently hired the nation's grandmas to knit the US teams opening sweaters!....
Looks to me like they picked the wrong grandmas. I could recommend several who could knit them without making it look like someone ate a bunch of red, white and blue yarn and upchucked it.

I'm definitely in the minority but I kind of like the American sweaters.
I definitely love the peacoat.

He's just hot enough to pull that look off, in my opinion, but I'd like to know how he's going to ski in that thing.

I think it's all just one piece, printed on the material.

Yeah, it looks like the bodysuit version of a tuxedo shirt.

That photo looks like his head was photoshopped onto the body.

I'm quite satisfied with the Canadian team uniforms this year, particularly those duffle coats, as well as the snowboarding uniforms and the inspiration for their design.

It's nice to see that our neighbors to the North have gotten it right once again. Way to go, Canada!

His skiing costume is designed to look like a mariachi musician.
The Three Amigos ride again!

The actual uniforms were made exclusively in the USA. Ralph Lauren really turned it out. I know little old ladies that sat in kitchens spinning yarn for these outfits.
Gahhhhh, I want that peacoat!!!!!
Upon close inspection, the German uniforms don't really look like rainbows. They're just colorful. Very, very colorful.
I am totally on board with the wacky Curling pants!

(sigh) I am in love with Canada's Olympic Uni - but it's so freaking expensive. I love my country, and I support team Canada in everything, I ain't spending 450++ on that [gorgeous] coat. I do love the snowboarding outfits. if they had managed to do that for all the sports [speed skating, etc], it would have been amazing.
