Dec 20, 2013, 1:34 PM EDT

Nike released its 2014 Olympic apparel, clothing Americans will wear at podium ceremonies in February, on Friday.

Some of the highlights include hidden elements such as the words “Land of the Free” and “Home of the Brave” embroidered in jacket hand pockets (see picture below) and an unspecified nod to 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey coach Herb Brooks’ “This is Your Moment” speech.

Here’s the collection:

    just sayin…maybe we should have had them made in China

      They are really not that bad….but I don’t know. Maybe I am just old. They seem a little minimalist. Ever see the yacht commissioned for Steve Jobs.

        And maybe a good idea would just be to replace the stars and strips with a swish.

    Chinese underwear with a swoosh. Why is everything Nike? We do have other sportswear makers in this country.

    I am Pro-Nike AND Anti-Nike… but… I’d wear one of those jackets.

    Even though…. they are SILVER.

      Too bad those jackets are goose down.

      I will wear goose down if I am high in Alaska (or winter), Karakorum, Himalaya, Arctic, or Antarctic.

      Goose down loses it’s loft when wet.

      Sochi forecast for Sunday Dec. 22nd – 48 F and 50% chance of rain

      I know it’s months away…. but…. it is possible that U.S. athletes could be forced to wear this down crap in a cold, wet opening ceremony.

        These clothes are for receiving medals during podium ceremonies. For the opening or closing ceremonies, the apparel is designed by Ralph Lauren.
