The 2018 Winter Olympics begin today. USA! USA! USA! If you really want to get into the team spirit, you can even get your own Team USA Olympic uniforms by Ralph Lauren. Yep. Even though your ice skating career may have tragically ended in third grade when you realized that triple axels were just not in your future, you can still dress just like the Olympic athletes who are sporting the red, white and blue in Pyeongchang this year.
Okay, so maybe you don’t need the built-in heaters that the Olympians will have installed in their snazzy (and entirely patriotic) parkas, but you can still nap the same style. Oh, and if you’re thinking, “Well, maybe I could use a jacket that has its very own heat source,” wait just a moment: Ralph Lauren’s official Opening Ceremony heated jacket has warming technology that’s been so popular that the jacket has already sold out online.

The race to PyeongChang is heating up, and our innovative Opening Ceremony parka will keep @GusKenworthy warm as he chases his Olympic dream. Polo Ralph Lauren is proud to support Gus and #TeamUSA as an official outfitter for the Olympic Games. For every post liked/viewed using #HeatTheWayForTeamUSA from 1/22 12:00AM ET to 1/23 12:00AM ET, Ralph Lauren Corporation will donate $1 (up to a maximum of $100k) to the USOC.
Don’t worry, there are still plenty of fab U.S. Olympic Team fashions to choose from. Ralph Lauren has Olympic-themed goodies galore. If a hat is on your wish-list, the Team USA Opening Ceremony Hat is an awesome option. But if you’re into custom caps, Ralph Lauren is also offering a personalized hat. Just visit the Ralph Lauren website to pick your size and color combo, then add your name and choose a pom pom.
Along with the heated jacket and hats, other Team USA collection pieces include Ceremony Mittens, a Ceremony Sweater, a double-knit hoodie, slim jeans, an assortment of t-shirts, a ripstop hooded poncho, tote, fleece track jacket and belts.

Ice Dancers @AlexShibutani and @MaiaShibutani had a little help from Chief Innovation Officer @DavidLauren to unveil the customizable #TeamUSA hat, with over five hundred combinations to choose from. Now available at RalphLauren.com/Custom and at our Prince Street store. #myRL
Sadly, the heated jacket isn’t the only item that has sold out. Other faves that are currently not available include a waxed cord bracelet, these seriously bold fringed Opening Ceremony gloves and the Team USA Ceremony suede boots.
If you’re lucky, you might be able to find a pair of those swanky gloves at select Ralph Lauren retail stores, which are also selling the Team USA Winter Olympics collection.
