Erm. I have chinos that exact yellow.
I really like them. They're so snug.

If the goal was to shift discussion away from the shittiness of the actual program by distracting everyone with the pants, well played Maxim.
I also think in one of the pictures, the pants looked good while in the rest of the pictures they looked the wrong shade of yellow to really go with both outfits. So I suspect they look better in person than in pictures as sometimes happens.

Screw the pants but that 'program'...
I am already anticipating screaming and punching the table when they get showered with 9s for what for the most part is cross-overs into technical elements. It's Shen/Zhao 2010 all over again.
Moreover, and more importantly, Tat and Max are looking good with better music and choreo than last season IMHO. And they were heavily rewarded last season for not so great programs/ performances until of course they hit their stride at Euros and Worlds (still their last season's music and choreo weren't very impactful/ memorable). So obviously their scores will probably be through the roof this season even with any possible mistakes. And right now, they are looking stronger and more on stride to being error-free this season. I think Tat and Max have great chemistry together, but still have yet to carve out a unique identity on the ice (they are still somewhat jockeying with/ seemingly trying to follow in the footsteps of Savchenko/ Szolkowy's innovative moves and quirky uniqueness combined with the beautiful edges and line of the Russian tradition). I do think Tat and Max are finding their unique selves much better so far this season, yet I truly wish Tatiana would quit with copying the former trademark Aliona move of pre-performance hand-rubbing.
I still think that Ondrej Hotarek's yellow pants are so much worse. Please watch their short program from Lombardia Trophy as proof...
