Colorado Springs, Colo. – The United States Olympic Committee debuted Polo Ralph Lauren's signature U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Closing Ceremony parade uniforms for the Rio 2016 Games during a fashion segment on NBC’s Today Show Wednesday morning.
Olympic silver medalist Haley Anderson (marathon swimming), Olympic champion Jordan Burroughs (wrestling) and 11-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte (swimming) revealed the men's and women's Closing Ceremony parade uniforms. The look for Polo Ralph Lauren’s 2016 official Closing Ceremony Uniform is crisp, sporty and classic, and features an all-American palette of red, white and blue.
Drawing on the heritage and sophistication of the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the tradition of refined American style, Polo Ralph Lauren's 2016 Team USA Closing Ceremony Parade uniform features a Pony-emblazoned button-down shirt, offered in a choice of three patriotic colors - red, white or blue, worn over a striped t-shirt and paired with chino shorts. Classic boat shoes get the team treatment in navy, white, and red. Striped cotton bracelets and classic repp-stripe belts offer the perfect touch of sport and style.
