Ralph Lauren keeps it classy

by frédérik

Well, the good news is that the insanity of the past few weeks has finally reached a sane conclusions. After a week and a half's vacation, I'll be back to full-strength blogging. So do check back again on Friday the 27th.

In the meantime, what do you think about l'affaire Ralph Lauren? The fashion designer responsible for dressing the US Olympic Team in uniforms that look like preppie country club wear filtered through US Marine formal dress rubbed salt AND pepper into the wound by having the clothes manufactured in China. So Team USA gets to look ridiculous in clothes that spit in the eye of American manufactures. Classy, Ralph. Real classy.

No wonder Senator Harry Reid called for the clothes to be burned.

But hey: Ralph Lauren promises that clothing for the 2014 Olympics will be made in the USA. That's a start. Next: designs that actually reflect "sports" other than parking the yacht in the marina and hemming and hawing over which club to use to drive the ball down the fairway.

This flag pole is really a golf club. Image borrowed under fair use from Yahoo sports.

I don't understand why the uniforms aren't being made in the USA, if they are for the US Olympics team....crazy.

enjoy your vacation!
