Canada will march into the Rio Olympic Opening Ceremony on Aug. 5 wearing red, blazer-like jackets with the option of adding trucker hats.

Canadian Olympians and Olympic hopefuls unveiled the nation’s entire Olympic clothing collection in Toronto on Tuesday night.

Hudson’s Bay Co. will outfit the Canadian Olympic team in Rio.

The Opening Ceremony uniforms include red jackets with the word “CANADA” in black letters and a white maple leaf on the back.

More from the Canadian Press:

The opening ceremony look includes a red jacket fashioned from the blend of a windbreaker and tailored blazer, featuring flap pockets, rubberized buttons and a zip pocket on the chest. The back of the jacket has tails with an elastic drawstring and a 3D print of the word “Canada” and the Maple Leaf.

A white jersey T-shirt with tailored sleeves and tails, and a tapered woollen track pant complete the ensemble, which will be accessorized with a classic Dsquared2 trucker hat.

The opening ceremony outfit will also be accompanied by a limited-edition line of T-shirts. The capsule collection includes illustrations of iconic Canadian creatures, including a bear, squirrel and beaver teamed with the Maple Leaf.
