Tokyo Olympics: After India, team Great Britain reveals official formalwear for Tokyo Olympics
Tokyo Olympics – Great Britain Olympic Team Kit: Olympians cyclist Elinor Barker, rugby union player Dan Bibby and taekwondo athlete Mahama Cho modelled as part of the launch at the company’s Manchester headquarters – revealing the uniform the team will wear for formal engagements.
It is the third consecutive Olympic Games that Simon Jersey has supplied Britain’s team with suits.
Olympic gold medallist and three-time world champion Barker showed off a blue slim-cut trouser suit, complemented with a red low tie blouse and clutch bag, which will be worn by all female Olympians.
Bibby and Cho showed a similar slim-fit blue suit, paired with a white shirt and blue tie.
All of this formal wear is embroidered with the Team GB logo and is made of comfortable fabric.
Simon Jersey will have a pop-up tailor’s shop at the Birmingham NEC in June to help British athletes be fitted for their suits.
This will allow up to 1,000 athletes, coaches and staff to be kitted out ahead of the Games.
After a 15-minute fit, suits will be altered to fit the athletes in less than 45 minutes.
