I priced it up a few weeks ago. Because of where I am, I have to go through an exclusive Beijing travel agency(which is affiliated with Ticketmaster). I have to book a complete Olympic package, flights, hotel, tickets, London sightseeing, everything. 5000 quid.. NO actual choice of events either, it's probably what they can get hold of at the time.

I like watching it and I do not find anybody at work to talk about it in normal times..

 

A great football team doesn't make up for this awful uniform.... tongue.gif

 

At least it looks like no one here actually likes it. If they did, that would really scare me...

If France just won the rugby world cup , I couldn't care less if they did turn wearing a Russian tuxedo at the Olympics...

Yeah but this is a clothes forum... we're discussing the uniforms, not the teams. I don't care much for soccer anyways...

I usually just watch soccer during the world cup; football still more popular around here.

When did "Douche Bag" become an Olympic sport?

Why is is that the poorest nation on that list, with the least amount of formal design tradition, is the only one that came up with something that doesn't look some sad take on service industry uniforms?

The Canadian uniforms feature heavy use of patches and denim—Canadian tuxedo, etc. And items you would wear camping. I don't know which bits will be worn in the opening ceremony, but you can see some for yourself:

Or just look on the HBC website. The Nike ones shown before are the actual track outfits, and those biodegradable ones from Beijing with the horrible typeface.

Obviously a lot of maple leaves on these, as used on the Olympic uniforms from before we got our current flag. Speaking of, it's interesting that with the PM putting the Royal back in the RCAF, RCN, etc, the Bay produces this somewhat Red Ensignesque design. Reminiscent of the ad hoc pre-1921 nine quartered (e.g. pre-Newfoundland) shields as employed on the old Flag. Which is appropriate considering that the Bay itself has had a Red Ensign as its corporate flag since 1682 (and they'll sell it to you on a mug for ~$12). Back when they owned most of the country and didn't just have the contract for the uniforms. So, politically not unproblematic! All part of the monarchists' rebranding plan, I'm sure. First flying the old flag at Vimy, now this. I'll ask them next time I'm at the Coffee Time at Yonge & Lawrence. Seriously, their office is in the basement.

I miss the capes:

S.Korea i all K-Pop wth the popped collars/lapels and "fashion forward" short jackets. They're fine imo.

Frenchies are like wannabe gangstas or something.

NZ women's uniform is indeed very housewify

Spain is just fail.

I quite like Jamaica's use of national colours.

Great Britain is just the most facepalm.gif of the lot since that even with all the fail ghastly uniforms of other countries at least those others seem like they tried something instead of just slapping a charcoal suit on them. It's you Olympics, put some thought into it!

I'm surprised not many of you comment on how well Hong Kong's one look - former colony does Brit better than Brits do Brit. Shame on you poms!

The Jamaican uniforms look quite fashionable; I love the French uniforms the best, simple but elegant.
