Vintage Olympic Style

  • Sharebar

The 2012 London Olympics are here! If you are like us and spent most of the weekend parked on the couch and glued to the TV watching the games then you might have full blown Olympic fever! Since we also love everything vintage we were curious about vintage Olympic uniforms that the athletes wore to the opening ceremonies or to compete. Here are some of the amazing vintage pictures that we found:

The 1908 Olympics in London (Great Britain Archery Team) via

The 1920 Olympics in Antwerp (Team USA Uniform)  via

The 1936 Olympics in Berlin (Hungarian Team Uniform) via

1948 Olympics in London (Team USA Uniform) via

1948 Olympics in London (USA Diving Team)  via

1960 Olympics in Rome (Japanese Team Uniform) via

1960 Olympics in Rome (Australian Team Uniform) via

1968 Olympics in Mexico City (Team USA Uniforms) via

1976 Olympics in Montreal (Great Britain Team Uniforms) via

We only wish that the current team uniforms had as much style and character as these classic looks!

  3. Howdy! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your
    site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my
    iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this
    problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Appreciate it!
