This patriotic clothing was designed by Ralph Lauren for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games' opening ceremony.

The clothes are unisex and were designed for Team USA to wear at the long-awaited opening ceremony. It was fitting that Ralph Lauren was chosen to create the design, as it is providing sports clothing for many of the American participants and is an American fashion house that produces somewhat conservative "classic" clothes. The patriotic clothing is preppy and all-American with a navy blazer, a red, white and blue shirt, white jeans and red, white and blue boat shoes.

By focusing on traditional clothing, the designers of this clothing provide a subtle backdrop for athletes to show off their American pride.
