What?! US Company Reportedly In Talks To Make Russia’s Olympic Uniforms

Talk about the agony of defeat!

Ralph Lauren — which got tripped up last week on reports that it was making uniforms for this year’s US Olympic team in China — said in a face-saving gesture Friday that it will produce Made-in-the-USA uniforms for the winter games in 2014.

But sources said Ralph Lauren and the US Olympic Committee, which had signed off on the Chinese-made goods, have been beaten to the punch by a rather embarrassing competitor — Russia’s Olympic team.

Since 2011, the Russian Olympic team has been in talks with Los Angeles-based American Apparel for a deal to design its clothing for the 2014 games, sources confirmed.
