New Canadian Summer Games wear: Nouveau leaf!

Posted by Ron Judd

Look_11_cropped.jpgJust when you thought there was nothing more you could do with that maple leaf, HBC of Canada comes along with its new take on uniforms and casual wear for the 2008 Canadian Summer Olympics team.

And to think people were worried that HBC -- formerly known as Hudson's Bay Company; yes, the fur-trapper people -- would produce staid, boring clothing after wresting the Canadian Olympic contract away from trendy Roots a couple years back.

Check out the full fashion line here.

Anyone else think this left-leaning individual appears to have just urped up all down his front?

Then again, it could be worse. Check out, below, the "iconic" parade wear the HBC draped all over the 1964 Canadian Winter Team. It's the Olympics, Charlie Brown!
