Team USA opening and closing ceremonies uniforms unveiled

The uniforms the U.S. Olympic team will be wearing for Sochi's opening and closing ceremonies were unveiled on the "Today Show" Thursday morning.

The patriotic red, white and navy uniforms were designed by Ralph Lauren.

"Ralph Lauren was inspired by the classic Americana patchwork quilts and sweaters.  So we're trying to do something by hand made in America so we're very excited," said David Lauren, Ralph Lauren Executive Vice President.

"We're very excited and very thrilled to be walking in the opening and closing ceremonies in this gear.  It's great," said Jessica Schultz, USA Curling.

"It's awesome. I'm American, too, so I mean it's very patriotic looking.  It's great.  We'll look very good," said Jared Zezel, USA Curling.

The opening ceremony will take place on February 7.
