How Much Is The U.S. Olympics Team Flag Bearer Jacket? Here's How Much It Costs
Are you ready for Rio? The 2016 Olympic games kick off in Rio de Janerio on Friday, and Team USA is already outfitted with the coolest uniforms. But how much is the U.S. Olympics Team Flag Bearer Jacket? Call the bank and ask for a loan, because this might be the priciest blazer you've ever shopped.
POLO Ralph Lauren has designed the opening ceremony uniforms for Team USA for the last five years, and the look is almost always classic, American prep. This year the team is outfitted in navy blue wool blazers, and they'll look so sharp with white trousers and red, white, and blue horizontal- striped tees.
The flag bearer's blazer, which will be worn proudly by Michael Phelps, is extra special with a glow-in-the-dark function that illuminates "USA" in white on the back. However, sadly, it's one of a kind, and you won't be able to purchase it. The good news? The rest of the team's blazers will feature the signature embroidered POLO logo and the official logo of Team USA, and it's available to purchase..
You can snag the historic look yourself, but it comes with a hefty price tag: Team USA's jacket is nearly $700. That's worth more than all the blazers I own combined, but there is good news — you can buy looks inspired by the blazer, and other pieces of the Team USA uniform, for much less on ralphlauren.com.
The Team USA Ceremony Striped Tee is just $90, and it's just as cute, in my opinion.
But if you've got your heart set on the jacket, you can shop it below.
