COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo – Berets are back for the U.S. Olympic team.
The team unveiled the uniform Tuesday for the Opening Ceremony at the London Olympics.
Men will wear navy blue blazers with the Olympic team patch, along with red, white and blue neckties and white pants. Women will pair the blazers with similar-colored scarves and skirts.
All the team members will top off their uniforms with navy blue berets highlighted with red and white stripes.
The marketing folks can only hope these berets go over as well as they did in 2002, when the U.S. team wore powder-blue berets at the Winter Olympics that became instant hits and quickly sold out at stores around Salt Lake City.
