Rolling Stone Magazine: The Best Winter Olympics Merch for Beijing 2022
1. Polo Ralph Lauren Team USA Opening Ceremony Jacket
For this year’s Opening Ceremony parade, Team USA will be rocking these mid-layer jackets from Polo Ralph Lauren. The jackets feature a Team USA badge on the chest, an embroidered Polo pony logo and “USA” on the sleeve. Thanks to Polartec fleece, the jackets are seriously warm too.
2. Polo Ralph Lauren Team USA Closing Ceremony Sweater
Next up from Ralph Lauren’s 2022 Winter Olympics lineup is the brand’s team USA Closing Ceremony sweater. Knit using 100% wool, the turtleneck proudly displays an American flag above the Olympics rings on the chest, as well as subtle striping on the neck. These graphics are intarsia-knit, and we think the sweater is stylish enough to wear long after the Olympics are over.
3. Volcom USST Ermont Windbreaker Jacket
The official outerwear partner of the U.S. Snowboard Team this year, Volcom has stepped up to the plate with some of the best Winter Olympics merch for the gnarliest ‘boarders in the world. Combining Olympic team spirit and Volcom’s signature youthful style, this Ermont windbreaker jacket makes a great choice from their U.S. Snowboard Team collection. The jacket’s material — a durable, water-resistant nylon — works for snowboarding or everyday wear during nasty weather.
4. Volcom USST Hotlapper Pant
Another great pick from Volcom’s official Olympics collection is the Hotlapper pant. Like the windbreaker above, the pants are built for Olympic-level slopes but ready for streetwear too. Made of breathable, weatherproof polyester and elastane, the pants offer mobility, comfort and protection in equal measure. Plus, if you have a Volcom snow jacket, the pants can zip to that jacket’s powder skirt for added warmth and coverage.
5. Nike Air Max 2090 USA
Nike was an official sponsor in the Tokyo Summer Olympics last year, but you can still rep team USA this winter with these Air Max 2090 USA sneakers. Boasting a modernised revision of the classic Air Max 90, these kicks feature red, white and blue colours along with “USA” printed on the heel. As expected from Nike, the shoes also deliver top-notch performance and comfort with a padded heel, a cushioned Air sole and an internal booty design.
6. W Republic USA Flag Team Beanie
If you’re looking for an easy (and affordable) way to cheer on Olympic athletes, check out this beanie from W Republic. With its red-white-and-blue colourway, “USA” knit across the top and a USA flag patch, the cap provides more than enough patriotism for any Olympics viewing party. Plus, it’s actually warm and comfortable too.
7. Polo Ralph Lauren Team USA Closing Ceremony Down Jacket
Bringing USA team spirit and some throwback style, this Polo Ralph Lauren jacket from this year’s Closing Ceremony is a great way to top off winter outfits. The puffer’s lining is a mix of polyester, recycled down and a dash of duck feathers, ensuring warmth on the slopes or in the city. There are subtle nods to the Olympics, such as an American flag patch on the arm and a Team USA patch on the chest, but the jacket’s plaid pattern makes it a statement piece — whether or not you’re cheering on USA’s Olympians.
8. Nike Team Canada Hockey Jersey
Looking to rep a country further north? Nike has you covered with this Canada hockey jersey. It’s styled after the team’s real jerseys, complete with a maple leaf symbol, red markings and a white background. It’s also slightly boxy, which is great for throwing over sweaters or jackets to rep Canada in the cold.
9. Polo Ralph Lauren Team USA Closing Ceremony Pant
One more pick from Ralph Lauren’s official 2022 Winter Olympics collection: these polyester and nylon pants. Designed for this year’s Closing Ceremony, the pants are meant for mountain sports with patches at the knee and seat, vented cuffs and a belted waist. But, because the lining is a fluffy, cozy polyester, the pants are also great for lounging at the ski lodge or watching the games from your couch.
10. Ben Sherman Team GB Sweater
Even if you’re not from Britain, it’s hard to resist the low-key prep style of this Team GB sweater from Ben Sherman. An official partner in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, Ben Sherman uses Britain’s team colours in a check pattern, along with an Olympic badge embroidered on the chest. It’s made of a lambswool and nylon blend material, bringing ample softness and warmth for winter weather.
