The chants of "U-S-A, U-S-A" are only days away as the 2012 Olympic Summer Games begin in London. While golf will not join the Olympics until 2016, there is plenty of sports apparel that can be worn now to support America's red, white and blue quest for gold.
Ralph Lauren, outfitter of Team USA, offers plenty for all with its U.S. Olympic collections.
For men there is the RLX Drive 3L jacket ($395), which is available in classic navy. The sporty raglan-sleeved jacket wicks moisture away from the body and adds extra protection with water-resistant zipped closures to stay dry on the course or at an Olympic venues in case of showers. The contrasting red chest zipper adds to the patriotic look, while the front ventilating panel keeps air moving. The matching Drive moisture-wicking pant ($298) will guarantee all-day weather protection.
On warmer days, try Team USA's pique duofold short ($98) that is a high quality athletic-style short that is crafted in breathable cotton mesh with a signature patch in navy or white. Pair that with a custom fit, big pony polo ($145) in white, red or navy that is also adorned with sporty numerals, patches, city text and a flag at the back. All four pieces come in sizes S-XXL.
For women, the navy London legging ($125) takes you from the stadium to dinner with an elasticized waistband for easy pull-on styling. The tapered leg has an interior mesh key pocket and the cotton fabric is easy care and comfortable.
The versatile full-zip front Terry tunic hoodie ($165) is perfect to wear with the leggings and the smooth French terrycloth will be cozy in any situation. The attached drawstring hood has waffle-knit lining and the long silhouette provides plenty of coverage.
Underneath, the navy London racer back sports tank ($60) has a casual scoop neck and is made of soft cotton jersey. There is red trim round the neck and arms, and the front is embellished with 2012 Olympic embroidery.
The pieces come in XS-XL, but some sizes have sold out.

Good Looks (The Open Championship)

Adam Scott may have come up a little short at the chance to hoist the claret jug at the Open Championship, but he never disappoints with how fashionably good he looks on the links.
The Aquascutum sweaters Scott wore in rounds two and three scored particularly high on the fashion meter. Both sweaters - the solid grey quarter zip with signature plaid on the elbows and the grey with red and white argyle pattern - had an elongated stand up collar that when unzipped, slightly flops over at the tips for a very fashion-shoot look.
While not a huge fan of peppering golf attire with sponsor's logos, the Mercedes-Benz right chest embroidery on the sweaters wasn't too bad. The luxury automobile appointed Scott as its international golf brand ambassador in October.
The UK-based Aquascutum was founded in 1851, and became known for the introduction of waterproof wool. Fine craftsmanship, luxurious tailoring and attention to detail create the company's quintessential British point of view that is the pursuit of style is a way of life.
The company is frequently compared to its fellow British fashion house and mega brand Burberry, which happens to be Scott's former golf apparel sponsor.
