Someone in the Chinese forum put it best when Patrick's penchant for casual attires was being discussed: "When you are good looking and the World Champion, you can wear whatever you want!"
Moi, if given a choice between a collection of world best clothes and a body that makes any clothes look good, I'd take the latter in a heart beat. Better to be fit and beautiful in jeans and T-shirts than to be lumpy in expensive suits or gowns. But, that's just me.
I therefore selflessly suppress my personal ambition and will support any self proclaimed Prez.
Absolutely correct.Someone in the Chinese forum put it best when Patrick's penchant for casual attires was being discussed: "When you are good looking and the World Champion, you can wear whatever you want!"
Oh how honourable of you, SF.I therefore selflessly suppress my personal ambition and will support any self proclaimed Prez.
SF for Prez!!!!
SF any news of Patrick. I almost feel like taking a swing by cricket club and granite club to get a sneak peak but I dont want to be a stalker!
This video is newly uploaded/found though it was from last year. I at Patrick's Cantonese name for Kucera! The jocks are well dressed here, including Patrick who looks good and so cute.
Here's another photo of Patrick in a jacket, just to show us he too does dress (somewhat, almost) appropriately for the occasion. Sometimes.
eta. I found this following the above video, jokes on and by Patrick at the Canadians Gala.

This is the first part of the TSN jock chat that should have preceded the one above but I couldn't find it before. I believed it was uploaded after the 2nd part.
I never thought of Patrick as good looking but what do I know; he is a great skater for sure.
We still get judged by our appearances, whether or not we land a quad or won a medal. But known success does accord one with more freedom from the usual judgement which is people taking the appearance as the reflection of one's character and social status. But we can free ourselves from caring about such judgements too and it takes confidence, something a World Champion and other successful people have. Or cluelessness. Or a combination of both. Exhibit A:
etaa. I should add another possible motivation for free style dressing: Attention seeking.
I hate the emphasis on dressing "age appropriately". I think it's more important to dress according to one's lifestyle and body, and according to the occasion and the weather. Age does not always determine lifestyle and body conditions despite stereotypes.
Youth, fitness, and the well proportioned body types make almost all skaters very good looking and attractive.

True. True True But one can hope we would be enlgihtened. But yes, generally the feminine, graceful, classically dressed with the classical music - ballet like with princessy overtunes is more desireable than the athletic masculine look in ladies. Somehow put a girl or a guy in a fluffy top and play some classical music with a few hand gestures and you are artsy LOL. Add some flowing locks...
you can dress nicely for reasonable amounts but somehow psychologically or media wise having Vera Wang design your outfit and you are suppose to be in style, artistic, best dressed. I don't agree but I do admit whether we like it or not just knowing you are wearing a 10,000 outfit you feel and skate more like a winner (and you probably are less likely to fall because you don't want to ruin this outfit worth more than your car
If Patrick wants some help i do image consulting and wardrobing for free for him. I am a bargain hunter - beautiful italian suits (Armani) regularly $2500 for $500 at Holt Renfrew in Canada (equivalent to Nordstrom's or Saks Fifth Avenue) It's not the money but the cut and drape - of course if you are an athlete things look good anyways.
You can't hide the fact that Patrick is a "cutie". I like him in shorts....(Obviously I'm a leg gal). He looks great in anything, and as long as he skates as well as he has been, I really don't care what he wears
He looks even more handsome in a dark suit in those videos SF posted before (thanks, SF).
But of course I love him best when he's skating great.
BTW, I'm just dying to know who'll be his coach and what his new programs will be like.
I think I can't wait any longer.
