Here’s How Much It’d Cost You To Buy The USA Olympic Opening Ceremony Outfit

The Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony officially took place on Friday, July 23 to kick off the 2020 Summer Games. Team USA made the walk with the rest of the competing countries for the Parade of Nations.

Once again, the USA Olympic team was outfitted by Ralph Lauren for the ceremony and the outfit generated plenty of discussions.

It was a preppy look that we’ve gotten used to seeing, and it comes with a hefty price tag. If you want to buy the Opening Ceremony outfit that the USA Olympians are wearing, it will cost you more than $1,000.

Per Darren Rovell, the exact price is $1,029.50 — which includes a $50 scarf, $89.50 polo, $195 jeans, and a $695 blazer.

That’s a lot of money for an outfit you can pick up much cheaper at a TJ Maxx or Ross Dress for Less in a few months.

One cool part of the Ralph Lauren Olympic gear, however, is the RL Cooling jacket. The jacket has a battery-powered device on the back of the neck which allows athletes to self-regulate the temperature. It is an important development with the Olympics potentially setting records for the hottest Olympics in history.

“The way in which we dress cannot only look great, but be great,” Lauren said, via USA Today.

“We all have to become more conscious, that we can push the boundaries, that we can bring about innovation to solve problems in new ways.”

The Olympics officially kick off on Friday, July 23, and will run through Sunday, August 8.
