Oh they get way.. way more than just this. They get all of the USOC gear, the gear from their specific sports federation, plus gifts from all of the sponsors. Shoes, sunglasses, jewelry, cell phones, and more.


That's insane.

'Maybe if they did not take it so literal.
Perhaps too subtle for many but I think they are the national plants/flowers for the nations that make up Great Britain

Rose = England
Thistle = Scotland
Daffodil = Wales
Shamrock - Northern Ireland

It's the same flowers/plants on the shirt as the tracksuit top

I love that the jacket design is subtle enough they could wear it after the Olympics is over.
 
Sorry... I'm with you @Sasha. In fact, this stuff really fucking pisses me off. They are spending gazillions of dollars on this Ralph Lauren stuff. There's an ENORMOUS amount of money blown on this.

I hope nobody ever donates to the USOC again. It's not a charity if this is what they do.
 
Some of it has to be product placement and free to the user. Don't know what percent, but usually Ralph bids to provide because they sell consumer versions. And I think usoc gets royalties from those sales. I assume Nike too. God knows the new phones were totally product placement. You should see what the Oscar swagbags are like.

You know Ralph has the clothes made in Asian factories for pennies and then sells the consumer one for $100 a shirt.

Eta: Don't see the Nascar jacket or the flight attendant one, but Macy's usually gets to sell the Ralph gear, so maybe coming soon? https://www.macys.com/shop/featured/Olympic/Brand,Sortby/Polo Ralph Lauren,PRICE_HIGH_TO_LOW

Most of it would be provided by Ralph Lauren as sponsors product.

Isn’t it the other way around? Doesn’t Ralph Lauren pay the USOC for the privilege of outfitting the athletes, then a % of the sales of related merchandise on top of that?
