2010 Olympics Apparel: Team USA vs. Team Canada

February 15th, 2010

In the 2010 Olympic team winter apparel competition, Canada wins.

My boyfriend and I loved the knit hats Team USA wore as they walked out during the 2010 Olympics Opening Ceremony. The hats feature a winter scene in red and white with blue moose and tassels. The hats were designed by Ralph Lauren and cost $75.00. That’s right – 75 USD for a knit winter hat with moose on it. Even if it is Ralph Lauren, I’m not paying $75 for a stocking cap. Sorry America.

I also loved the mittens the Canadian Olympic team was wearing as they walked out during the opening ceremony. They are simple red mittens that say “Vancouver 2010″ in white on the back of the hand and have a white maple leaf on the palm of the hand. The Team Canada Olympic mittens are only $10 (Canadian $) at the Hudson Bay Company website. I’m American, but I will definitely buy the Team Canada mittens for 10 CAD. O Canada!
