Last week, our editors picked the best, worst, and weirdest of this year’s Olympic uniforms. Now, we want to hear from you. So tell us: which of these outfits do you think deserves fashion gold?
We Jamaicans know what we're capable of, so when we saw our uniforms unveiled we were not sure what to think, some still think we could do better but compared to the lot, we stand out with vibrant pride.
Great job Cedella Marley!
Team Jamaica has the unfair advantage of having the best colors in their flag.. The outfit is awesome. I cant believe they coordinated even the shoes. Wonderful!
I loved Germany's and South Korea's - both on Time's 'best uniforms' list. But SK is not on here Time!
I'm West Indian (bajan for those who care), and I picked Jamaica's cause it seems they kept it "real" and by that, its not overly nautical or preppy, the colors may be vibrant but I could realistically see a suave person wearing their uniforms, plus they didn't show the womens, Jamaica's female outfit is more "body friendly" in my opinion then the others. Being actually born and raised in the U.S.A, I must say the US outfit are awful, shame on you ralph lauren
Some Jamaicans might say they dont like the design of our Olympic Uniform but when they see the other nations own. They can clearly see that Jamaica's Uniform stands out proudly as #1 from the rest of the world.
I don't agree that most Jamaicans think the uniform is awful. In fact, I can safely say that my colleagues (age group reference and younger) are rocking with the Iron, Lion, Zion theme. We think its different in a positive way and we say, Go Jamaica. Win, loose or draw we give 100% support to Team Jamaica.
Yours truly - 100% Jamaican.
Perhaps the designer who I am sure had much help in being selected is a contributing factor - JA need to give other (established and accomplished) designer a chance rather than nepotism
I think Jamaica's uniform is quite vibrant and is reflective of it's country and people - bold and memorable
The other TIME article (listing all the "best" and "worst" olympic uniforms) listed "WORST" for America/USA, Austrailia, and China (3 of the choices above for "best"). Get your own ideas consistant, TIME. How can I pick a "best" from a list of "worst"? I preferred Italy, Germany, Jamaica -- more FUN, SPORTY outfits that athletes should and would wear, not these 3rd grade school uniforms with huge ridiculous logos from overpaid politicized companies (who had the clothes made in a separate country other than those the clothes represent). Change the choices, TIME - according to your own data.
Just all Jamaicans (and non Jamaicans) voting for the uniform. I voted for JA yet I do hate the uniform
