Estonia's Olympic Uniforms Make 5-Best List
It's not a website everyone would know, but the global culture watcher Société Perrier has rated Estonia's 2014 Winter Olympics team uniforms fourth among its top-five.
"Coming out of left field this year is Estonia, but how could they not make the top five looking this adorable?" the site's editors commented in their photo-heavy article.
Produced by Monton, an Estonian-based fashion company, the opening ceremony costumes were inspired by the spirit of the wolf, and weave together Estonia's national colors with ethno-cultural patterns, uudised.err.ee reported last October.
The rating, while from a relatively obscure source, has been making the rounds in social media and may be a small redemption for Estonia, whose uniform design for the 2012 London games got the thumbs down from journalists and sports bloggers.
Others in Société Perrier's top five were France, Sweden, Norway and the US.
The same article included a five-worst, which included Russia and Estonia's Baltic neighbors Latvia and Lithuania, though some commentators have contended that the Latvian uniforms pictured in the article were not actually from the country's official Olympics line.
