Team USA will be featured front and center during the 2014 Olympic Games opening ceremony in Sochi, Russia, on Feb. 7. And it will be looking good.

The uniforms were designed by fashion icon Ralph Lauren and manufactured in the USA, a source of criticism of past uniforms.

The sweater features bold stars and stripes, along with a couple of American flags and the famous Olympic rings. The pants are simple, with a small "2014" and "RL" logo on the lower leg. But be prepared to spend a pretty penny on the threads, as the total outfit will cost $2,218.

The apparel has a winter-lodge-type feel to it—something one would see at a posh ski resort. But when a fashion-industry legend is the brains behind these duds, what else should we expect? 

What do you think of the new threads? 

Thanks to Ralph Lauren for the photos and Chris Chase of For The Win for the find.
