Ralph Lauren’s Sochi Sweaters Sell for Thousands


You may not ski like a winter Olympian, but now you can look like one…for a price. The patchwork style sweaters that Ralph Lauren outfitted the USA winter Olympic team in this year in Sochi have found their way onto eBay. The original sales from the limited edition opening ceremony cardigan were donated to the U.S. Olympic Committee. Now that the $595 knit is sold out, fans are taking to the resale site, some bidding more than $4000 for their prize. Is this a form of utmost patriotism? A justified investment in a rare piece of clothing? Or is paying so much money for a pullover that many compared to something you'd wear to an “ugly sweater party” simply foolish?
