its not something that a person would wear just walking around, but for a motor cycle suit, its not bad.

I mean imagaine if someone was just out shopping in a vanson full leather suit, they would look ridiculous just the same.

Looks alot softer and more manageable than the promo photos led to believe. Rimma-
Is that a 4-way stretch lycra/spandex or another type of stretchable material under the armor? Looks to be a little loose or too long in the legs. Kind of wonky.

Honestly I could only see that worn for motorcycle sport exhibitions.

I just can't see someone getting up on a Saturday and put that on just to go out riding.

If I was really big into costuming, and had a lot of $$ to throw around, I would definately get it just to have a very SA Batman costume. Hell, all you'd have to do is get a cowl and a cape and you literally would be Batman!

Don't forget they also have the SA boots on the site for sale, too!

Here's a great bunch of images of the suit worn...in different positions and on a bike.

Sounds pretty awesome. I'd like to see a quick video of the construction and movement of how the suit flows as a whole. Would that be possible David?

This thing makes me think ninja Master Chief more than Batman. It's a lot more wearable than I think a lot of us expected it to be, though.

What's planned for Iron Man? Moto suit again or a normal garment?

Now that all deliveries have been met, we're back working on the Batman Begins line...which should be ready this month.
At that point the Bruce Wayne Leather Jacket will be added to the site for new ordering.

We're getting a lot of similar requests for this to be reintroduced, so just keep an eye on the site...at some point in April we'll open the new sales.

:)

David,
Wil The Bruce Wayne leather be of a lighter leather, like lambskin or goat, or will it be a tougher type?

The Dark Knight above really makes want to buy one if only for a kick-ass costume. But, I don't own a bike, so I can't see me ever wearing it unless for a costume piece.

It has always been cow. Tough, thick and pliable....I would never make a motorcycle jacket out of lamb or goat.

I'll be increasing the thickness on the second run though....get ready for power hides guys....:)

I agree it does look more 'wearable' than I thought as well. The DK boots and belt will only better the suits look though 8-)

OK David, thanks for the info.

For the secondary run of the BW jacket, the million dollar question is, will if be offered in a 1:1 Bale size? I think you stated that in the fall that it would.
Not to stir up another hornet's nest, but that would be a selling point for me.

Also, what will they be going for?

Looks like I'll be torn between your's and Dan's(which has not been produced yet), but I definately will be looking into getting one for the fall.
