On the fringe: Ralph Lauren-designed Team USA’s fringe gloves not getting a huge hand
This fringe isn’t in.
Team USA launched its uniform for the upcoming Olympics and hands-down the fringed-gloves are getting the most criticism from the fashion police.
Twitter is full of tweets about the Ralph Lauren-designed brown suede explorer gloves with fringe and hand-beading.
On ralphlauren.com, it shows a photo of what is being called “the opening ceremony” glove and says coming soon. So we don’t know the price tag yet for these hand warmers.

But we do know they probably won’t be a big seller from the reaction on social media.

The gloves for the US Olympic team are the ugliest. Just terrible. Ruined a decent outfit. pic.twitter.com/PG1MWYI0Aw

Hey fashion police: What do you think of the USA Olympic team's dingy brown suede fringe-detailed gloves?
