Team USA's Opening Ceremony outfits for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia were unveiled on Thursday, Jan. 23. The ceremony outfits are designed by Ralph Lauren, according to

The outfits feature a cardigan complete with stars, stripes, Olympic rings and American flags. The outfit also includes a matching beanie, cream turtleneck, white fleece pants and black leather boots with red laces.

Lauren says that the outfits convey the patchwork quilt, which is the most American of crafts. He admitted the opening ceremony outfit is "maybe a little bit more festive, especially this year."

Critics slammed the outfits. They called them "hideously ugly." Some think that the cardigans resemble ugly Christmas sweaters. Others bluntly said it "looks like Ralph Lauren threw up America" on the outfits.

The most important matter is that these outfits are made in the U.S.A. During the 2012 London games, Lauren's uniforms were made in China, which caused some controversy. It looks like the designer got the message loud and clear this time around.

There are some people that support the outfits. They're just not willing to come out and admit it. What do you think of Team USA's Opening Ceremony outfits?
