Today, the U.S. Olympic Team made its debut at the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, sporting an ensemble created by the Ralph Lauren brand.
For the sixth time, label is an official outfitter of the U.S. team, and its latest uniform includes a jacket, sweater and pants with an all-American style. And the whole look is topped off by brown suede mountaineering boots that were manufactured by Allen Edmonds in its U.S. factory.
Below are details on some of the other uniforms that Team USA will be wearing over the next couple of weeks.
Medal Stand Uniform
In addition to providing jerseys for several of the national hockey teams — including the U.S. and Canada — Nike created Team USA’s medal stand ensemble, featuring high-tech weatherproof jackets and pants, and the NSW Gaiter Boot with a lace-free closure system.
Freeski Team Gear
The North Face is back for the second time as the uniform supplier for the U.S. Freeski Team. To design the look, the brand worked with its athlete partners, including Olympic gold medalist Maddie Bowman. The kit includes outerwear, base layers, accessories and footwear.
The 2018 U.S. Snowboarding Team could double as extras in a retro sci-fi movie. Burton’s official uniform for the athletes is white with red color pops, and it takes distinct design cues from vintage NASA space suits. The jacket lining also features Korean translations of phrases like “Do you speak English?” and “Wish me luck.”
Ski Team Casual Boots
Khombu has a long-standing relationship with the U.S. Ski Team as an official footwear supplier and has a branded collection of après boots in stores now.
After its 2014 Olympic speedskating uniform was widely panned, Under Armour went back to the drawing board for Pyeongchang. Two years of development and 100 hours of wind tunnel testing resulted in H1, a highly aerodynamic fabric that has been integrated into the arms and legs of the speedskating skins.
Bobsled & Skeleton Uniforms
Under Armour also is providing the “skins” that are being worn by the U.S. bobsled and skeleton teams, modeled here by bobsledders Hakeem Abdul and Codie Bascue. In addition to the racing outfits, the team also will be wearing items from the brand’s Country Pride collection, including puffer coats and vests, a warmup jacket and a special version of UA’s Fat Tire boot.
Mogul Skier Gear
Team USA’s mogul skiers will be braving the hills in a kit by Columbia. The uniform features the brand’s Outdry Extreme waterproof protection and a camouflage pattern designed to help mask body movement — a key judging component for moguls skiers.
