J. Lindeberg and Golden Bear: A Medal-Worthy Team

Take a quick look at the new Team USA gear from J. Lindeberg and you’ll find a consistent vibe that is spread throughout a variety of looks, striking a balance between aesthetics and performance with polos, shoes, shorts and pants, hats and other accessories.

But if you take a closer look at the collection, not only will you see a crazy attention to detail and an unmatched quality, but you’ll also find a one-of-a-kind piece of outerwear that is a must-have when it comes to fashionable statement pieces. And that’s the exclusive varsity jacket, made in collaboration with the iconic Golden Bear company.

It’s basically the piece that will put Team USA over the top in the best-dressed department, especially if used during the team walk-in. Do they give out gold medals for style?

The brands have collaborated on similar items before, but nothing quite as global – or impressive – is this piece. Not only does it fit the bill by supporting Team USA with logo branding, stars and a red, white and blue theme, but it also features custom-made embroidery patches. And the embroidery includes the words, “Citius, Altius, Fortius,” which is the original motto of the Olympic Games and translates to “faster, higher, stronger” in Latin.

It’s crafted from a heavy wool blend, with a timeless look of contrasting leather sleeves. And it doesn’t just look cool, as it’s fully lined for additional warmth and finished with seven press button closure, two hand pockets and striped rib cuffs, bottom hem and collar.

When FairwayStyles spoke with J. Lindeberg’s Chief Creative Officer, Neil Lewty, about this and the other head-turning outerwear like the Claude Cardigan, he said they wanted the pieces to be playful yet sophisticated, so that the athletes in Paris could express their own personal style while staying within a unified team look.

“We wanted to infuse a sense of fun and individuality into the collection,” Lewty said. “Celebrating the unique personalities of the athletes. The letterman jacket and cardigan are nods to classic American styles, reimagined with a modern twist.”

The men’s golf competition is scheduled for Aug. 1-4 at Le Golf National outside Paris, with Scottie Scheffler, Xander Schauffele, Wyndham Clark and Collin Morikawa representing the U.S. The women’s golf will take place Aug. 7-10, with Team USA led by world No. 1 Nelly Korda, along with Lilia Vu and Rose Zhang.
