Here’s how R-Sport described the look:

For the opening ceremony, however, more subdued black and burgundy velvet blazers with a Russian crest are in favor.

Overall, the Russian uniforms appear to be toned down a notch from the red-and-white swirled costumes that made several publications’ picks for the worst of London 2012’s wear. Both Russia’s London and Sochi uniforms were produced by Russian clothing firm Bosco Sport.
