Late last week, news broke that Hudson Bay’s Team Canada toques were completely sold out—both online and in stores. The pompom-topped hats were lauded by the New York Times as one of the few semi-stylish pieces of Sochi Games apparel. At just $20, they were also a relatively inexpensive way for Canadian Sochi followers to display their patriotism. Unfortunately, that’s no longer the case. Those who missed out on securing a toque through legitimate channels will have to fork over up to $200 on eBay if they want to sport a cap for the final hockey match-ups. Apparently, we’re not the only country desperate to purchase vastly overpriced Sochi garb: the American team’s delightfully tacky knit sweaters are currently going for over a grand.
