Shop the Ralph Lauren Collection Team USA Will Wear During the 2018 Winter Olympics

Introducing CHAMPION YOUR DREAMS
Everyone knows that first impressions are important — especially if the whole world is watching. This week, Ralph Lauren gave us all a first look at the uniforms that Team USA will be wearing during the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

“We’re proud that we’ve worked so closely with the athletes, as well as the U.S. Olympic Committee, to keep evolving and improving,” added David Lauren, chief innovation officer for Ralph Lareun. “The uniform celebrates the American spirit, with iconic pieces updated with modern details and technical fabrications.”

That technology refers to a built-in heating system on the team’s jackets, which utilizes battery power and electronic printed conductive inks.  And because this is America, the system is shaped like the U.S. flag.

The best part of this entire collection? You can shop it for yourself. That’s right — you can look like an Olympic athlete. Well, you can dress like one. You’re going to have to train harder to really look like one.

The lineup includes a classic parka (which features the innovative heating system) and a variety of cold weather essentials. Our favorites include the classic Team USA long-sleeve tee, these amazing suede boots, and, of course, the official ceremony sweater.

You can also design your own Team USA knit hat — within the appropriate red, white, and blue colorway, of course — and customize it with your name. Other American-made pieces, like a flag-inspired hoodie, a chino cap, and suede gloves complete with Americana-style fringe, will be released soon.

Keep an eye out for these stars on stripes on February 9 when PyeongChang 2018 officially kicks off. The games will run through February 25.

If you can’t get enough Olympic swag, Omega launched a collection of exclusive watches inspired by the Olympic rings and Columbia Sportswear developed some amazing duds for the U.S. ski team.

The 11 best Robert De Niro movies to stream right now
From Raging Bull to The Godfather Part II, these are the roles that have defined De Niro's long career
Robert De Niro in Goodfellas

There are few actors working today who can match the career that Robert De Niro has had. Some, like Brad Pitt or even George Clooney, have been in plenty of great movies, but even they don't stack up to the kind of career that De Niro has had over the last half a century. De Niro's success can be chalked up, at least in part, to his collaboration with great directors. De Niro has been in some of Martin Scorsese's best movies, and Scorsese isn't the only director who knows how to use him.

Really, though, it's De Niro himself who deserves a lot of the credit. Although he's been in plenty of schlock, the best movies of his career are up there with the best movies ever made. When he emerged on the scene, De Niro showed off his ability to play a range of different types, and his skills have only deepened as the years have gone by. Keep reading and find out what Robert De Niro movies you cannot miss if you have already.

The 12 best Adam Sandler movies (they’re not all comedies)
From Uncut Gems to Happy Gilmore, these are the films that defined Sandler's career to date

What is there left to say about Adam Sandler? The Sand-Man has been a fixture of pop culture for well over 20 years, having worked first on Saturday Night Live and then broken out in a series of farcical, wonderful comedies in the years after his departure. He's one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet, and he's been part of some of the best comedy movies. He's also made plenty of movies that nobody should be forced to watch twice.
For every movie that has immediately been relegated to the trash bin of history, though, Sandler has also made an indelible comedy or a surprising turn into drama. While he could have emerged looking a little bit like a one-trick pony who relies on funny voices for cheap laughs, Sandler turned out to be far more complicated than that. He is a genuinely great actor whenever he wants to be. The rest of the time, he's content to make silly movies with his best friends. Here are the best Adam Sandler movies you need to watch now.
