Olympic Committee for allowing the uniforms, which are made in China.
"The Olympics are a time when Americans take great pride in our nation's top athletes as they strive for gold. Olympic Committee is symbolic of a disastrous trade policy which has cost us millions of decent-paying jobs and must be changed."
USOC spokesman Patrick Sandusky called the debate "nonsense" on Twitter. Olympic Team is privately funded and we're grateful for the support of our sponsors. team uniforms are made in China, Politico reported.
"They should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them," Reid sad.
Earlier: There's no skirting this issue.
When Team USA's opening ceremony uniforms were unveiled Tuesday morning in USA TODAY, the women's uniform consisted of a fitted navy blazer and a knee-length cream silk skirt. There were no pants to be found,[url=http://discountnikesoccershoes.webmium.com/][b]http://discountnikesoccershoes.webmium.com/[/b][/url], either in the Ralph Lauren sketches or online where the merchandise is sold.
It all seemed a tad limiting, so USA TODAY Sports wondered if the men were the only ones wearing the pants in this Olympic relationship. Olympic Committee and Ralph Lauren,[url=http://merrellshoesonsaleformen.blogspot.com/][b]http://merrellshoesonsaleformen.blogspot.com/[/b][/url], who said there will be a pants option for women though no sketches were available.
And now there's a report by ABC News that every piece of the uniform is made in China. Has there ever been so much buzz about an Olympic uniform? Fashion designer Nanette Lepore questioned the choice, telling ABC News:
"Why shouldn't we have pride not only in the American athletes,[url=http://duveticaoutletcanada.halod.com/][b]duvetica down jackets men[/b][/url], but in the American manufacturers and laborers who are the backbone of our country? Why? What's wrong? Why was that not a consideration?"
The men's uniform consists of cotton club-collar sport shirts,[url=http://monclerjackenoutletch.albirank.net/][b]http://monclerjackenoutletch.albirank.net/[/b][/url], red and navy ties,[url=http://duveticashop.olimx.com/][b]Buy duvetica jackets online duvetica down jackets men sale uk outlet[b][/url], and double-breasted blazers and cuffed,[url=http://newkevindurantshoes2012.blogspot.com/][b]new kevin durant shoes 2012[/b][/url], cream, flat-front trousers. In modeling the uniforms,[url=http://www.duveticajacketsjp.com/][b]デュベチカ 通販[/b][/url], soccer player Heather Mitts, who wore crew socks and nubuck cream saddle shoes, called the ensemble "amazing."
For inspiration, the Ralph Lauren team relied on photos from USOC's archives,[url=http://www.duveticajacketsjp.com/][b]デュベティカダウンジャケット-デュベチカ（Duvetica）店舗-デュベティカアウトレット-デュベチカ 通販-デュベチカ専売店[/b][/url], 1948 in particular, the last time the Games were held in London. "Knowing that we were going back to England,[url=http://monclerjackenoutletch.albirank.net/][b]Moncler Weste Billig Moncler Jacken Outlet Moncler Outlet Österreich[/b][/url], there was a feeling of Chariots of Fire," David Lauren, the designer's son, said.
The men and women will wear berets. No doubt Ralph Lauren is hoping to recreate the beret craze of 2002,[url=http://cheapnikesoccercleatsmercurial.webmium.com/][b]cheap nike soccer cleats mercurial Discount Soccer Cleats Clearance Cleats[/b][/url], when the Canadian company Roots debuted THE fashion accessory in Salt Lake City.
