Red, White and Sacrebleu
Ralph Lauren’s Olympic opening ceremony uniforms for Team USA have been unveiled finally and, as expected, Ralph nailed it with the double-breasted blazer, club collar and white bucks... but we can’t quite wrap our heads around that hat. Is it, dare we say, a beret? It can’t be, can it? You might as well grab the flag out of Ryan Lochte’s hand and replace it with a baguette, draw a pencil mustache on him and tell him to stop bathing all while cooing at him like Pepé Le Pew.
All right, maybe we’re jumping to conclusions here. Let’s just call it a “puffy hat” and leave it at that. (As long as we keep on bringing home the gold and not surrendering to Germany, we should have nothing to worry about.)
