How do these unis stack up against the clothing worn at past Winter Games? Here's a sartorial step back in time that features some of the unique looks Canada's best athletes have worn. And who knows, maybe one of these will inspire the next designer rip-off.

Sochi 2014

Mittens and toques are a staple of the Canadian closet, but the toggle coats with the faux cummerbunds were ... interesting, to say the least.

Vancouver 2010

Parkas, lumberjack scarves and the all-red mittens all make sense for hosting an Olympics in Canada. But given that the Games were in Vancouver, perhaps something a little lighter and rain-resistant would've been a good idea.

Torino 2006

Turin is only a short train ride away from Milan, one of the world's fashion capitals. Canada wasn't exactly sprezzatura at those Games in Italy, wearing white jackets with screen-printed graphics and white, fluffy hats. So, so fluffy.

Salt Lake City 2002

The "Canada" script was a great look, and the leather jackets with the vintage maple leaf and white piping will send a lot of Canadian sports fans rushing to their basements hoping that the jackets are delicately crammed into a box somewhere. Plus, winter headbands are making a comeback, right?

Varsity jacket? Check. Kangol-style cap worn backwards? Check. Tinted sunglasses worn on the aforementioned hat? You got yourself the perfect '90s look courtesy of The Great One.

Lillehammer 1994

What do you get when you cross a Cossack with a matador? Something that should only be worn when Canadians visit Norway, apparently. These definitely fall in the "so bad it's good" category, making it The Room of Olympic outfits.

Albertville 1992

Someone had to take up the mantle of big coats and fluffy hats in the first Winter Games in the post-Soviet era. Ironically, this ensemble could've used a little more red.
