Ralph Lauren has selected Clifton-based manufacturer Better Team USA to assemble and manufacture the Opening Ceremony parkas for the 2022 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams.

Better Team USA is a luxury outerwear manufacturing facility that has been in business for over 40 years and is a longtime partner of Ralph Lauren, including producing garments for past U.S. Olympic and Paralympic teams.

“We have been a longtime manufacturing partner of Ralph Lauren’s and are once again so proud to have played a part in producing high quality apparel that will be worn on the world’s stage – right here in the United States,” said Martin DiBattista, Owner, Better Team USA.

“The opening ceremony of any Olympic and Paralympic Games attracts tens of millions of viewers in the United States and even more worldwide,” said Gov. Phil Murphy. “I am proud that when fans of the Games across the world tune into the Opening Ceremonies of the 2022 Games, they will be seeing Team USA athletes outfitted in Ralph Lauren parkas manufactured right here in New Jersey by Better Team USA.”

In 2019, Ralph Lauren opened a new corporate office in Nutley, with the addition of 225 jobs, supported by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.
