    Patrick Uber Thread - road to Sochi

    Me 2... #1 looks too feminine IMO. Looks like costume for La Boheme? Nice blue.

    fscric, I understand Tu Ly is a well known designer in Canada. His POTO costumes were nice though. I like his red Aranjuez top too.

    I'd almost prefer to see Chan dress up like this for competition than wear the new costumes Tu Ly designed for him.

    Patrick, no frills and lace please, keep it as simple as you can. The blue is nice though.

    I'm not a fan of the black lace look either for him, so I voted for the blue costume.

    Lace and frills always make skaters look blurry to me...

    You are being vague or polite.
    Oh yeah VarBar, one of my favourite costumes for Patrick was his plain white tee and jeans in Mannish Boy. Very Patrick.
    He must have 'mountain biked' to the top of the Colorado mountains (I assume it's in Colorado)?

    I'm sorry they don't work out for you.
    But I lurrrve that navy blue dress Patrick wore on the EX "Time to say Good-by" in 08/09 season.
    So I'm more than happy if Patrick wear this one as his new SP costume.

    And I think he needs to do something about his hairstyle when wearing that costume.

    I wasn't thinking of a costume that plain but I agree with you that Mannish Boy was a cool look for Patrick...although I would have liked him to wear a more presentable t-shirt every now and then.

    Which reminds me, found the source of amusement for naan and vigiliae in the latest ALL That Skate.

    How about a perm? I think a perm would work pretty well with frou-frou and laces. Jk, so long as Patrick keeps looking like an athlete on the ice rather than some unidentifiable creature, he will have my full support no matter what costumes he wears or how his hair is done. I suspect the frill& lace is for Elegy and the other one for La boheme.

    Kathy Johnson seems like a very nice person to be around.

    Must be taking a great deal of courage to change coaches and choreographers at the same time. Hopefully it's gonna pay off for Patrick.

    This hairstyle may suit his La Boheme? http://janeaustensworld.files.wordpr...ault.jpg?w=500

    That's PChiddy.

    I hope so too. The Chans must have their reasons. We will just have to wait and see how things go. Can't wait to see his programs with Buttle and Wilson.

    Clarie, your reaction to outfit number one....

    When I saw it, I said out loud "Oh holy god no".

    Alas, mine is an unconditional love, and so lace or no lace, go Chiddy.

    And SpikeyD, that hair! So debonair.

    How are they going to cut one whole minute from Elegy? I was watching his world's exhibition again, and it's such the perfect cut at 3.5mins. How, HOW?!

    Why not? At least Rodolfo is a romantic poet, not a short-haired athlete like Patrick in last season.
    My love is also unconditional, but I'll love him more if he shows up with a little bit long hair.

    I think that is one of the problems when we'll see new SP after watching that gorgeous EX version many times.
    Cut the music from such perfect editing is a hard work which may not be paid off. Because we have become used to the longer version. I'm afraid some people would say "Alas! The Ex version was way better than this".

    Lucky Patrick to have fans like jl22aries and Ali Dorate. Guess Clarie and Spiky are a tad too OLD-fashioned.

    Let's see whether Tu Ly will reduce the lacey look in the blue costume?

    I'm not old fashioned....just old. He could wear bicycle pants and a bra, and I would still love him .......so maybe a ruffle or two would be ok..

    I think Patrick looks great in these pictures from Skate Canada:

    http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=1&theater
    This is the BEST. Casual smart. Looks great in this blue gingham shirt.

    Is he wearing some 'black pearl' bangles?

    That has to be 18th century hairstyle and I think he would need 19th century to fit the story.

    I'm sort of fearing that kind of reaction too but maybe a gorgeous quadruple jump will make up for what's lost on the choreographic side? If anything is lost though. Btw, did Chan skate his new Elegie version at High Performance Camp? Did anyone mention his skate at all? PJ perhaps?

    On the ice? For everyone to see? Let's not push it, clarie.
    I have the feeling we will be happy with the look of Patrick in both costumes though. I don't think his Elegy one is as frilly and lacey in the big picture as it seems to be when we look at separate enlarged parts of it.

    Thought of jade too.

    Spikydurian, thank you for the two pictures. Patrick's shirt in the first picture, isn't it the same one as here?

    http://twitter.com/TCSBears/status/2.../photo/1/large

    What was he doing at Trinity College School other than taking funny pictures with pretty girls?

    Lastly, congratulations to Patrick Chan on winning the first John Ralston Saul Award.

    http://twitter.com/francaisavenir/st.../photo/1/large

    Who is John Ralston Saul?

    I'm afraid ali_dorate will be disappointed in that picture because Patrick's hair is still short.

    It could also be Buddhist prayer beads, or feng shui crystals that is quite popular amongst Asians.

    It's Skate Canada's new sponsor, a jewellery designer.

    All the Canadian team members were given goodies.

    ^^^ Thanks jl22aries. Some of the Thomas Sabo bracelets are very pretty. The one which caught my eye costs $700 over.

    Clarie & VarBar, what do you think will happen If Patrick appears on the ice one fine day in bicycle tights and bra?

    Who is John Ralston Saul?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Ra..._International
    Hey, Canadians should know! I googled …. Ralston Saul is an eminent Canadian philosopher/thinker and his wife was the Governor-General of Canada! Apparently, he just completed a series of lectures around Australia too,
    Not sure what is the award for? Assume it’s something related to service? Can someone elaborate?

    What was he doing at Trinity College School other than taking funny pictures with pretty girls?
    He was the first speaker for the Mac Campbell Lecture Series to the year 12 graders in Trinity College Ontario. http://www.northumberlandview.ca/ind...play&sid=17294

    Knew that he was Adrienne Clarkson's husband and was a writer but didnt know he was such a luminary .

    If PG appears in bicycle tights and a bra he will remind everyone of Lloyd Eisler. He will have to fill out in some areas though!
