    Figure skating champions Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski comment for NBC the Figure Skating Men's Free Skating on day seven of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics at Iceberg Skating Palace on February 14, 2014 in Sochi, Russia.

    Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski have certainly made the Winter Olympics in Sochi pretty memorable, thanks to their sometimes wild wardrobe choices while providing figure-skating commentary. (Especially Weir!)

    But if you think you've seen it all from the dynamic duo when it comes to their outfits, think again.

    The two shared with "Today" that they brought several huge suitcases ("Three of mine are the size of Ford Focuses and three of Tara's are the size of Audi S4s," said Weir) that include

    - 22 pairs of shoes

    - 10 pounds of jewelry

    - 25 blazers

    - 4 fur coats (all belonging to Weir)

    - 6 pairs of leather pants

    - 9 designer purses

    "I started pulling clothes from different designers and jewelry from different designers about a month before we came over," said Weir.

    Added Lipinski, "We're (in Russia) for almost a month and we're on air almost every day, so we had to put together outfits ahead of time so we weren't just bringing our whole closet."

    But while Weir admitted that they "definitely" overpacked, he also noted, "We're in this position where we're the new kids on the block and we have to prove ourselves. You can't wear the same black suit every day so we have to mix it up."

    Mix it up indeed!

    (E! and Today are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
