The U.S. Olympic team unveiled its new Ralph Lauren uniforms for the Opening Ceremony.

NEW YORK -- Designer Ralph Lauren's new Olympic Opening Ceremony uniform has lots of stars and stripes. It has lots of red, white and blue.

And most importantly, it has a Made in America label.

The new look features a knit patchwork cardigan emblazoned with big stars, an American flag, and the Olympic rings.

Underneath, there's a cream cotton turtleneck, white athletic pants, and black leather boots.

There's also a wool "reindeer hat" -- with braided tassels -- also in red, white and blue, of course.

The most important feature, though, is its provenance -- the United States. During the 2012 London Games, Lauren's uniforms were a point of controversy when it was revealed that much of them were made overseas, especially in China.

Ralph Lauren Corp. got the message.

"A dynamic mix of patriotic references in a classic color palette of red, white and navy defines the Ralph Lauren 2014 Team USA Opening Ceremony uniform, which is proudly Made in America," the company said in a statement Thursday.
