With the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games just over two weeks away, the United States Olympic Committee is unveiling Team USA’s opening ceremony uniforms, designed by Polo Ralph Lauren, the official outfitter of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams for the sixth Olympic Games running. The uniforms are made in the U.S.

The heart of the look is a red, white and blue down parka designed with a heating system made from electronic printed conductive inks, printed in the shape of an American flag in carbon and silver ink and bonded to the interior of the jackets. Developed exclusively for Ralph Lauren, the heating technology connects to a battery pack with three settings so the athletes can set their own perfect temperature. It has 11 hours of heating life at full charge. The parkas will be worn over a patriotic intarsia wool sweater and slim jeans with moto-inspired seaming. For accessories, there’s a navy wool ski hat, a USA navy bandanna, a leather belt, brown suede mountaineering boots with red laces, and — the most directional piece of the ensemble — brown suede gloves with Western fringe embroidered with the Olympic rings and American flag.
