Because when I think of athletic gear, Ralph Lauren is the name that immediately springs to mind.   Lookingup


It really is sad though how hard you have to dig to find clothing manufactured in the US, particularly when it's an "upscale" (meaning: expensive) label like Lauren.

Meanwhile, has anyone checked to see if the U.S. Olympic team's athletic equipment and other stuff they use is all American made?  I don't know if they are or not, but I suspect it's not just the uniforms that were made outside the U.S.

Yeah I'm not banking on the idea that it will be "American" made. Some stuff claimed to be "American Made" is, in fact, made in China for cheap labor. Lookingup

yeah no.
