May I ask you about yukata (do they wear yukata in these pictures, am I right?) for men in Japan? Is it always of the dark colours? Like on these pictures guys wear mainly three coloured yukata: black, grey and white. Do they exist in different shades? And how are they usually distributed among skaters on such events- I mean is there any preference in design or pattern used on fabric? I hope it doesn't sound rude to ask?

You can have Yukata in any color you like --and any pattern. It's a light-weight traditional garb that you usually see during the summer time festivals and parties etc. You also see them a lot in onsens. I'm not sure when these are given out...maybe it's the costume for the after show banquet? There are certainly trends in Yukatas though.

The yukata clothing for skaters at DOI were sponsored by SOU・SOU, a brand based on Kyoto, Japan. The designer mentioned Yuzu chose the style of yukata himself.
See more at SOU・SOU website
Their new styles of 2014 for lady are quite attractive to me!

As a Japanese, I didn't even notice mens yukata is always of dark colors
Actually, in the old days, dark color, that is indigo, was mainly used for girls yukata too, because yukata was a casual wear, and other colors were a kind of luxury. It was used as night clothes after repeated washing, then used as baby's diaper, rags, etc. Girls yukatas were not colorful as the ones you see these days either.
Anyway, I see mens yukata in dark colors very masculine and cool.
Edit: I like his yukata of the last year more.

I am definitely considering the GPF. I'm familiar with Barcelona, having spent more than one holiday there in the past few years, and would love to visit it in the winter for a change. :-)

I had already bought tickets(plus accommodation and airfare) to Skate Canada, so I was hoping he would be there too, but oh well. (Will I see anyone there??)

Hello everyone! I've found this forum not too long ago and have been trying to read as much as possible as I'm fairly new to figure skating.

Actually, I really really wish he can either go for Skate Canada or Skate America instead. :P
