Can You Buy Team USA's 2018 Olympic Fringe Gloves? Ralph Lauren Designed The Polarizing Mittens

Ad failed to load

In the world of viral sensations, you don't really expect to see gloves, but it's the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony, and it's apparently, it's cold in South Korea. Team USA's fringe gloves caused a ruckus on Twitter, and while opinions on whether the camel colored accessory was stylish or well, not so much, were mixed, if you don like them you may want to buy them, but can you? It's a mixed bag of an answer.

The Team USA gloves were created by opening ceremony designer Ralph Lauren, and as such they're considered part of the designer's purchasable line. Good news, right? Well, maybe not so much. Despite the somewhat critical (but hilarious) reactions on Twitters to the oversized suede gloves, they're officially sold out on Ralph Lauren's website with no restock in site.

Of course, if you were planning to purchase them, you probably would have dropped a pretty penny. While you can no longer access the gloves on the Ralph Lauren site (you can only see that they are sold out), other gloves and mittens retail for as much as $195 on the site for a knitted pair. These fancy sued fringe mitts potentially cost much more than that given their seemingly durable appearance and hello, fringe.

While Twitter may have been up in arms (or hands) about the gloves, they seem to be much more popular than the social media platform let on given that the Ralph Lauren creation is totally sold out.

Some seem to think that the gloves are a harbinger of fashion trends to come.

Hey, the Team USA Olympians seem to enjoy them, and that's what really matters, right?

Other Twitter users are torn on their feelings about the now seemingly infamous accessory to the USA opening ceremony look.

But, uh, some are definitely not torn.

They down right loathe them.

If you wanted the fringe suede gloves and are now feeling despondent about your ability to emulate both cowboys and Team USA simultaneously, there are still options for you from the Ralph Lauren collection.

The online retailer of Team USA gear features much more affordable pieces that won't make you feel like you should have just bought a plane ticket to South Korea.
