Men's online tailor Kyle Vucko of Indochino.com notes that US Olympic athletes look sharp in the navy-blue blazers provided by Ralph Lauren, the official clothing supplier to the US Olympic team.
When the limited release of 200 official team blazers (offered for $695) sold-out within days of appearing on the Ralph Lauren website, Vucko was not surprised:
"It was refreshing to see the entire Olympic team come out in more than hoodies. Who wouldn't want to sport the American getup this year? Slim and classic, very Gatsby. That's a good thing!"
As for the prominence of the white polo pony logo on the left-hand side, (which was criticized for being too large by some online writers), Vucko felt that it was tasteful: "I actually liked it. It balanced out the suit and brought together the outfit."
For those who still want to celebrate the games in a classic navy blue blazer (minus the white polo pony), Vucko points to the online options at Indochino.com.
"The Indochino navy blazer is modeled after the classic Ralph Lauren look but is less than half the price of the original," explains Vucko. "It's also hand-tailored, can be shipped via FedEx anywhere in the world and is available in two weeks."
The well-draped 100% wool blazer is form fitting, well tailored, features two buttons, one vent and a 150 threadcount, and sells for $149.
