American Uniforms Debacle Leaves U.S. Team With Black Eye Before London Olympics Even Begin

American Uniforms Debacle Leaves U.S. Team With Black Eye Before London Olympics Even BeginPolo Ralph Lauren, the makers of the United States uniforms for the Olympics, tried in vain to do some damage control when they announced last week that the uniforms for the 2014 Games would be made in America.

That makes sense, right?

Of course it does, but the company was in hot water after it was revealed that the uniforms for this year's games were made in China. 

"When America's best athletes are representing our country on the world stage, we should be representing the best of American-made goods," New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said in statement, according to ABCNews.com. "The pride of our Olympic athletics goes hand in hand with the pride of American innovation and manufacturing. While I am disappointed our athletes will not be dressed head to toe in Made in the USA this year, I greatly appreciate the USOC and Ralph Lauren have heard our voices and worked to correct this mistake going forward. I look forward to cheering on Team USA."

Now, about those berets…
