Every Olympics, our country’s elite athletes are outfitted in snazzy new duds for the big opening ceremony.
This year, designer Ralph Lauren came up with the uniform and it’s causing a bit of controversy.
If you haven’t seen the outfits yet, check them out here.

And even if you can put those details aside, many critics say the overall ensemble isn’t the fashion-forward look our country should be giving off.
One of our loyal listeners said it best on Twitter:
But others argue that the blazers and white pants are a classy combination.
