With a navy, double-breasted jacket, ties and white pants for men, scarves and white skirts for women, and a jaunty cap they look ... not all that different from the 2008 version.

If Ralph Lauren is trying to create a certain look for Team USA, it's working. Besides the change in colors in hats, it's hard to tell from a distance -- say, from a seat in the stands at the Olympic Stadium -- the outfits are any different from the previous Summer Olympics.

As part of its partnership with Team USA, Ralph Lauren is planning a cool promotion to raise money for the Olympic movement. From its press release:

The cheers, hosted on RalphLaurenRally.com, will be showcased to Team USA in London during team processing and throughout USA House. For each cheer submitted, Ralph Lauren Corporation will donate $1 (up to $25,000) to Team USA.
