Olympic Team USA Sweater Sells out Immediately Online

At the Olympic opening ceremony, sea of red white and blue hand knit sweaters flooded the Sochi arena representing Team U.S.A. While some lauded the sweater designed by Ralph Lauren as classic Americana, other bashed the busy knits calling them “ugly Christmas sweaters” on twitter.


Despite the mixed reviews, the $595 sweaters and matching $195 pants have already sold out on Ralph Lauren’s website.  For those yearning to wrap their bodies in the chunky knit, however, a select few are selling on Ebay for prices as steep as $3000.

One sweater takes more than 12 hours to make.  Lots of hand whip-stitching.
