You can't spell new Olympic wear without g-o-u-g-e

RlclosingDALLAS - The Olympics is not only a showcase for athletes we otherwise would never hear about or watch, but the perfect time for manufacturers to release new gadgets, toys and clothes we can all own in our feeble attempt to at least dress like an Olympian.

Here at the USOC Olympic summit both Nike and Ralph Lauren are displaying some of their respective new releases for the 2012 Games in London.

Ralph Lauren is not exactly your average Wal Mart line, so dressing like an Olympic athlete isn't cheap.

A bucket hat runs $55.
A pair of shorts is $110.
A fleece is $165.

All of these threads are high end and stylish.
