The pants being worn by Norwegian skip Thomas Ulsrud and his team at the Vancouver Olympics would have fit in an Austin Powers movie. And they’re hard to miss on the curling ice.

Featuring red, white and blue diamonds, the pants are made by Loudmouth Golf – the same brand made famous by pro golfer John Daly.

The company website refers to the brand this way: “Papayas, hibiscus, girls, and woodies. Remember the plaid striped, and brightly coloured pants of years past? Men’s golf pants have turned to mud. Where did all the fun fashions go? Loudmouth Golf is bringing them back. Pants that go from the fairway to the party. Let the good times roll!

The Loudmouth Golf Dixie Pants retail for US$89.95.

“Actually the story is our second was supposed to hook us up with some new pants. We said, ‘Yeah sure, just find them’ and he turned up with these ones. We went, ‘no, no, no,”‘ Ulsrud said with a laugh after practice at the Vancouver Olympic Centre.
