Useless Competition Trivia: How Many Tuxes Does Charlie White Have?

The Ice Doesn't Care goes to figure skating places where people don't care! But hey, I look up at team figure skating and Charlie's in another damn tux when he and Meryl Davis do their short program. Damn! That man's always in a tux!

But this one looks familiar, so does he get a new one for every program, or does he just use an old one?

Tux 1: 18th Century Style. Double breasted, short tailed, with white weskit, wing collar, and cravat.

Tux 2: 19th Century. Swallow tail, single breasted, white tie.

OOh, love her dress. But probably didn't show up well on ice

Undefined: Sort of a pirate tux. I don't like puffy shirts. I'm going to count this as a non-tux
So, it looks like Meryl gets a new costume every time and Charlie just recycles his when a tux is required!


  1. I don't know if you caught the interview with the moms that may explain this look-they were talking about how he only wanted to skate in black. All the time. Black pants, black shirt. Looks like he figured out a way to stay pretty darn close while having that work.

    1. I haven't been able to see anything about the Olympics other than D&W's team skate. so I hadn't heard that. Thanks.
