For the Sochi 2014 Olympics, the U.S. team will be strutting in something that looks like a cross between a high school varsity letter jacket and a really bad postcard.

Thursday, fashion designer Ralph Lauren revealed what America’s athletes will be wearing during the opening ceremony: red-laced boots, a white (cream?) turtleneck, white sweatpants and a beanie.

Lauren told USA Today the outfit is a callback to the hey day of patchwork quilts. I think it looks like a very patriotic ransom letter.

Olympic curlers Jared Zezel and Jessica Schultz showed off the outfits for the first time on NBC’s “The Today Show“.

What do you think? Would you walk out of the house wearing this?

Above is a gallery of Olympic uniforms through the years.
