NEW YORK — Designer Ralph Lauren's new Olympic opening ceremony uniform has lots of stars and stripes. It has lots of red, white and blue. And most importantly, it has a Made in America label.
The new look features a knit patchwork cardigan emblazoned with big stars, an American flag, and the Olympic rings. Underneath, there's a cream cotton turtleneck, white athletic pants, and black leather boots. There's also a wool "reindeer hat" — with braided tassels — also in red, white and blue, of course.
