The Competitive Fashions of Curling

I was planning on writing a hard-hitting piece on curling fashion here, but then it hit me: In comparison to the Norwegians, all the other curling teams look like they are going grocery shopping on a Sunday morning.


United States
I know that I am always pushing for more red in our national attire, but blaaaaaaaaaah. They even look bored WEARING this.


Germany
Seriously. Stopping at the store on the way home from the country club.


Canada
Ok, we're getting a little better. Some graphic interest. I would expect at least as much from a curling nation such as Canada.


Russia
Longtime readers will recall that I was a big fan of this Russian print that was also used during the 2012 London Olympics. Still a fan, and I appreciate that they are learning from the Norwegians.

AND NOW THE HOLY GRAIL OF CURLING FASHION

Norway
