Gonna have to take getting used to seeing Lululemon, a Vancouver-based company best known for its yoga gear, outfitting the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Committee instead of the likes of Roots and the Hudson Bay Company for many years. May have been misses there but I do like the looks from Hudson Bay Company and Roots. The shades of red are nice but the multilayers of parkas on displays? Like some more so than others. Puffy, very puffy. That's what I immediately spot when I see it. The hats are decent, but they're not what the HBC and Roots offered and appealed to me. Functionality is another thing for me. 

Several articles on the unveiling of this apparel earlier this week in Toronto at a downtown hotel ballroom. If all this works for and is well-liked by Canada's Olympic and Paralympic athletes, more power to them. Some products from this collection here I like more so than others, so I'm mixed but there's a Twitter roasting--Cue the Michelin Tire Man (and Squid Game) jokes. Another problem is, some of these items are EXPENSIVE:

Sweden's Olympic and Paralympic Committees have unveiled their Beijing 2022 official apparel uniforms to be worn by the 2022 Swedish Olympic and Paralympic Teams with the support of Uniqlo under the mutually-shared Sweden and UNIQLO qualities of "quality, innovation, sustainability. modern lifestyle, and simple design" while announcing its new slew of a 21-person UNIQLO Team Sweden Brand Ambassadors. Sweden's athletes and officials were engaged in the creation of this gear throughout. Team Sweden Olympic and Paralympic will also sport once again "UNIQLO's LifeWear apparel at ceremonies, in training and competition, press engagements, Village stay, and during leisure and travel time. As part of the full collection, UNIQLO will provide competition wear for skiing, snowboarding, and curling events." A Sweden UNIQLO 2022 consumer line is forthcoming.

It's mostly both navy blue and yellow with significant columbia blue as the focus this time with a yellow shade more akin to that in the Swedish flag after criticisms within Sweden for presenting the neon yellow shade in Tokyo.

U.S. lawmakers ask IOC for assurances uniforms not made through forced labor

The United States’ Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) released a letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Wednesday voicing concern over forced labor in the production of uniforms ahead of the Beijing Games.

The CECC is concerned that Anta Sports and Hengyuanxiang Group (HYX Group), with which the IOC has contracts to produce uniforms, use cotton from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR).

“Cotton produced in the XUAR is synonymous with forced labor and the systematic repression that takes place there,” the letter said.

“Forced labor plays an integral role in the genocide taking place against Uyghurs and other predominantly Muslim ethnic groups in the region.”

The IOC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The U.S. government and many rights groups say Beijing is carrying out genocide in Xinjiang. China denies the allegations of human rights abuses.

“Because Anta and HYX Group both continue to use cotton produced in the XUAR, there is a worrisome possibility that IOC personnel or others attending the 2022 Olympic Games will be wearing clothing contaminated by forced labor,” the CECC added in the letter.

Among the commission’s requests of the IOC were to make public a “certificate of origin” that HYX Group provided the IOC “that reportedly confirmed that no forced labor was used” in its production.

The CECC also asked the IOC to explain publicly “assurances” from Anta Sports that its products were not produced through forced labor.

The Winter Olympics run from Feb. 4-Feb. 20.
