    Hey, they have Red, White and Blue belts.

    This says it all, like a bunch of wingdings:

    The American clothier touted the uniform's "exceptionally elegant silhouettes in a timeless palette" in a press release.
    I would have expected better from USOC (in Colorado Springs, no less)............No...........I guess not.

    It's all about the mighty $.

    You should see the crap our young people have had to wear at previous Olympiads.

    Just a sign of the time my friends. Don't see why the "Polo" logo needs to be ten times the size it is on their regular clothing line, nor why it should be anything near the size of the US symbol.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    I'd like to know what idiots on the USOC approved this! It's just about as big a blunder as Harley pulled when some idiot chose "Sir" Elton John to be the main entertainment act at the 2003 100th Harley birthday bash!!!! Elton might be a good entertainer, but he does NOT fit at a Harley rally. White outfits with a "giant" polo emblem might be OK at the polo club, but it doesn't fit the entire US Olympic team! They look like a bunch of yuppy wooses! Say daaaling, would you like another watercress sandwich with your perrier???

    Maybe because he isn't that masculine?

    Can someone explain to me what is the deal with tucking in the shirt in the front middle... but leaving the rest untucked? I don't get it... see the guy in the blue shirt in the photos. I've seen this before... I guess it's a new way to conceal carry, untucked?

    Fashun! is infashunable... or is that infathomable? or just plain reeee diculous? My spell checker just had a stroke.

    I do it sometimes, but only because i have a bit of a beer gut and the my belt buckle digs plus, tucking my shirt in wouldnt be conduscive to concealment with my carry method, plus it would be untucked in a matter of mins

    It started off being about showing off flashy buckles. Then it became "fashionable" to do any anytime.
