    Default Steffen and Jan looking natty in their opening ceremony garb

    These caps look much better than the berets seen in other photos.

    Thanks for posting. It all looks rather nautical to me....

    Those pants don't look white to me. They certainly aren't the same color as the shirts and caps. In the other uniform photos, the pants definitely look bright white, not bone.

    The pants are meant to be cream. Everything else is white.

    I almost sort of like that look. Definitely agree about the hats!

    I hate those pants. No one should ever be asked to wear white-ish pants with material so thin you can see the pockets through them.
    My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.

    You mean like dressage riders?

    Those trousers are what we used to call "winter white" and I think those guys look very smart in them. Mixing shades of white has always been considered fashionable, at least in NYC where I work.

    I don't mind these uniforms at all.

    I would gladly wear a garbage bag while marching in the opening ceremonies if I was an athlete representing the USA in the Olympics!!!!

    Representing the USA in the Olympics is one of the highest honors there is. I would do it in a heartbeat.

    Get over the uniform thing.

    I like it better than the sport coats and cowboy hats I seem to remember from a past year...

    I am with you. I have a pair of white linen pants - they have a light lining so that they don't look SEE THROUGH like these do.

    Come on' Ralph Lauren! This is London - Not Jamaica! I am sure a light lining to make them less see through would be appreciated.

    Personally, I use breeches which are thick enough you can't see through them like that. Cheap.

    And I agree on lining if you're going to have lightweight linen pants or something!

    My thought exactly.

    I do not get that at all.

    Are they all given specific underwear so that matches too, because it is going to be visible in those pants.

    See-through white pants and american flag undies... Now that would be classy.

    The reports states, “Elizabeth reported that she accidently put down this pony, ........, at the show.”

    You are right. Just the flag would be straight-from-walmart-trashy. Adding the RL Logo makes everything classy.
