Well, let’s hope Team USA claims a lot of medals at this year’s Rio Olympics—anything to cover up the WASP-y, cheap Gatsby knockoffs Ralph Lauren has outfitted them in. Yes, America’s brightest athletes will enter the global stage looking very smart indeed for their first day at sea on the good ship USS Jackie Kennedy. Good grief.
By way of comparison, Great Britain’s Olympic team gets to wear these numbers from Stella McCartney and Adidas. It’s not quite the crowning jewel one might have expected from a designer at hot as McCartney, but at least they don’t look like they’re headed for Easter brunch at Uncle Sam’s.
Introducing the #TeamGB and #ParalympicsGB 2016 kit designed by Stella and @adidasuk. A ground-breaking range of performance wear, combining the very latest technical innovation with our signature modern design aesthetic. Union flag hues sit alongside bold textures and modern silhouettes to create a strong sense of identity. #TomMitchell @jessicaennishill @stellamccartney @tomdaley1994 @OliviaBreen12
The team from South Korea has also debuted their look, and it is in definite keeping with high fashion in South Korea and has the added benefit of a built-in mosquito repellent to keep the Zika virus at bay. Team USA did not see fit to add any mosquito repellent into their Gordon Gecko’s Summer Home fanfic attire.
And what about Team France? They teamed up with Lacoste for a classic, nicely tailored look that sure looks breathable (they can jump in them!), and they got a dope beat to debut them in. Where did Team America get to debut their Wall Street Boat Party outfits? Good Morning America. Advantage: Team France.
Team Sweden’s clothes were designed by H&M, which means they probably cost $3 a pop and have the structural integrity to withstand exactly one washing. But the clothes look great right up until the point where they literally rip to shreds right off your body for no reason.
But the best look has to go to Team Canada, who mirrored the fashion sense of their famously fly prime minister. Just look at these guys. Win or lose; they’d look fantastic in these Dsquared outfits. But with swerves like this, they clearly are not flying all the way to Rio to lose..
Good luck, Team USA. Bring home the gold. Leave the uniforms in Rio.

United gets their cheap on, fake news, and Trump hired who?
Welcome to Episode IV. This week, Dan spends some time with his favorite singer/songwriter, Matthew Perryman Jones. Matthew and Dan talk about panic attacks, growing up in Atlanta, the way music is informed by pain and suffering and the way music gives freedom.
If you have spent any time watching television in the last decade you have most likely heard one of Mattew’s songs on shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, One Tree Hill and many others. His insightful writing and voice have drawn comparisons to Leonard Cohen and Jeff Buckley, and he is on the short list of songwriters who skillfully weave the deeply philosophical and the vivid utterly human without ever losing sight of either.
To get his new album Cold Answer, (which features the three songs from him you heard on this episode), visit MPJmusic.com.
