As the official formalwear supplier to Team GB for the third consecutive Olympic Games, Simon Jersey’s specially designed suits will be worn by athletes, coaches and staff at all formal engagements. British Olympians Elinor Barker, Dan Bibby and Mahama Cho revealed Team GB’s official formalwear for the first time during a launch event our Manchester headquarters, ahead of the delayed Summer Games, which open on 23 July.
Olympic gold medalist and three-time world champion cyclist, Elinor Barker, was the first to showcase the chic blue slim-cut trouser suit, complemented with a red low tie blouse and matching clutch bag, which will be worn by Britain’s female Olympians. She was joined by fellow Team GB athletes, Dan Bibby, whose rugby sevens side won silver at Rio 2016, and Taekwondo star, Mahama Cho, who competed at Rio 2016 and secured a silver medal in the World Taekwondo Championships a year later. They unveiled the formalwear for Britain’s male athletes, which includes a stylish slim-fitting blue suit, paired with a white shirt and blue tie.
Blending a modern style with sleek cuts to flatter an athletic physique, the bespoke formalwear, embroidered with the iconic Team GB logo, is made with smooth, comfortable fabric and a water-repellent Teflon® finish.
