UPDATE: Unfortunately, it seems that this knit hat is almost impossible to find. If you’re desperate, you can try bidding for it on eBay–they are bona-fide collectors items, so the going price is about 2x to 3x their original price of $75.
In a previous post I mentioned the stylish Polo down jacket worn by the USA Olympic Team. Well, after searching far and wide, I found the super-cool knit hat which Team USA was wearing as they entered the arena during the opening ceremonies. It’s also made by Polo Ralph Lauren, and its available from the US Olympic Shop. It makes a fantastic gift, will be the single most stylish fashion statement of the season, and supports the US Olympic Team as well.
The cap is a knit cap with the U.S. Flag sewed between a blue pattern. The main part of the cap is designed with blue knit moose, trees, and other winter scenes. The top is a knit red and blue pattern, and a stylish tassel completes it. It’s one of the nicest stocking caps I’ve seen.
If you’re in the market for a knit cap, this is the one to get. But hurry, after the Olympics are over, this is going to be extremely difficult to find. In fact, it’s already the hottest item of the Vancouver Olympics…it keeps selling out on the US Olympic Shop web site, but keep trying.
