Belstaff dresses The Dark Knight in their time-honoured tradition

Belstaff has helped create the look of Bruce Wayne, the enigmatic alter ego of Batman, in Warner Bros. Pictures’ highly anticipated action adventure The Dark Knight.

Billionaire philanthropist by day and masked vigilante by night, Bruce Wayne’s dualistic character provided Belstaff with its most mysterious, fascinating character to date. Bruce Wayne’s classic, formal wardrobe, with touchstones to his dark side, inspired Belstaff in creating the Dark Leather Blouson, the jacket he wears on his motorcycle racing through the streets of Gotham City. The Dark Leather Blouson bears a vintage look, with two red leather bands, that reflects Belstaff’s time-honoured motorcycling tradition.

The jacket Belstaff designed for The Dark Knight was inspired by the inner conflicts of Bruce Wayne, which makes him both a fascinating and thoroughly modern hero.

Belstaff, founded in 1924 by Harry Grosberg in the English Midlands, was the first company in the world to use a fabric that was totally waterproof but breathable – making famous “Wax Cotton”. With this material, Belstaff specialized in the creation of high technology wear for the protection of the motorist.
