Norway's curling team is currently 3-0 in round-robin play at the Sochi Games and the Norwegians lead the overall medal count, so it's safe to say Norway is sitting pretty at the moment. Part of that pretty is the famous pants worn by the Norway curlers

The team has a colorful tradition of pants selection and this year is no different. But did you know Norway's pants are actually golf pants made by a U.S. company? And did you know you can buy them?

A company by the name of Loudmouth — fittingly — makes the obnoxious Norwegian curling pants. You can purchase all three pairs of slacks worn by Team Norway on the company website. Or perhaps you could find them in the stores that sell their products, but something tells us these might not be on regular ol' store shelves. Maybe call first?

The pants will cost you $110, which might seem a tad expensive, but this kind of style ain't cheap, folks. There are also shorts ($90), skirts ($85) and sports coats ($395) in each pattern. This is important news if you, say, are in a barbershop quartet.

Because you were wondering — yes, Loudmouth makes a bunch of other crazy-colored pants. They're a perfect cure to the curling fever we're sure you've developed this past week. We've chosen some of our faves below.
