They’re made in America this time, but the uniforms the US Olympic team will be wearing during the opening and closing ceremonies in Sochi are still the target of a lot of criticism.

Designed by Ralph Lauren, a company executive described the thick, button-up sweater a “meticulously knit patchwork cardigan highlighted with artisan details and emblazoned with stars and spirited graphics.” Click here to see the design.

Descriptions on social media are much different, including one tweet of “Team USA will be dressed like your rich aunt at Olympics”.

In 2012, Ralph Lauren was criticized because the uniforms for the London games were made in China.
