The 2012 Summer Olympics are almost here, but lately it seems the biggest news regarding the Games is the controversy surrounding the uniforms designed by Ralph Lauren for the U.S. team.

First there was lots of discussion about why they chose berets for the U.S. and now we find out that our uniforms are being manufactured in China, which is causing a huge issue.

The Ralph Lauren Corporation has since released the following statement, promising to keep production of the 2014 Olympic uniforms in the U.S.:

“For more than 45 years Ralph Lauren has built a brand that embodies the best of American quality and design rooted in the rich heritage of our country. We are honored to continue our longstanding relationship with the United States Olympic Committee in the 2014 Olympic Games by serving as an Official Outfitter of the US Olympic and Paralympic teams. Ralph Lauren promises to lead the conversation within our industry and our government to address the issue to increase manufacturing in the United States. We have committed to producing the Opening and Closing ceremony Team USA uniforms in the United States that will be worn for the 2014 Olympic Games.”
