Wardrobe for the new Batman?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Wonder if anyone knows about the wardrobe the newest Bruce Wayne will be sportin in the new movie; Lindy Hemming put Bond in Brioni, wonder what she'll do for Batman's alter-ego? If anyone knows, i'd be curious to know if she goes the same route.

Guess my question was finally answered, Bruce Wayne's suits are MTM Armani 'handmade' line, as currently advertised in new mens magazines like GQ/ Esquire. thought it might be of note for styleforumites.

Interesting that the gorge is as low as it is. Not old-school low, but lower than much of the high-end stuff we see today. Has Armani skipped the trend for super-high gorges?

I saw that ad and immediately thought Patrick Bateman is back - low gorge.

I do too, assuming we're defining this as a "low gorge." Some of the excessively high ones look like the coat is sliding off the wearer's back.

My first thought too when I was flipping through GQ and saw this.

Armani is setting the new trend of 'low' gorges that other design house will follow in the next couple years!

NVM - I compared it to some of my suits, it is lower, though not by much.

Point taken, though I want to point out two things:

1. The height at which the Bateman picture was taken is higher than the height at which the 2nd photo is taken, making the gorge look lower down on his body.

2. More of an interesting aesthetic point: the breast pocket on the Armani seems quite high, the 2nd picture's breast pocket is slightly lower than average.

Discounting variation in camera angle, which I'll give you, check out the gorge in relation to the shirt collar. Batman's points are fairly long and narrow, and the gorge sits about even with the tips. On the second suit, the gorge sits above a spread collar. Now imagine the second coat with Batman's shirt. The gorge on Batman's suit has to be significantly lower.

Personally, if this is the beginning of a trend, I wouldn't mind. Gorges are gonna move down sooner or later -- if they climb much higher, they'll meet behind the neck.

Strangely enough, I never made the connection between collar point length and gorge until you pointed it out. I tend to see it in relation to where a man's collarbone is since this takes into account the shape of the upper chest as well.

Bateman's gorge and longer shirt points seem to flatten his chest somewhat, looks good though, especially with the slimmer lapel.

I don't understand the high gorge thing. I think perhaps 1 in 1,000 people manage to pull it off without looking completely stupid, but even then I don't like it: I also notice that more often than not, high gorge suits are always left unbuttoned. A subtle nod to the fact that it looks even more silly done up? I think it's an extension of raising the gorge on suits to stop it from accentuating the stomach... which is only a problem if you're overweight. I'm sick of fashion being dictated by people who are unhealthy.

Shraka, that white suit doesn't have a high gorge.

BTW, I think the batman poster would look much better if he wears spread collar instead of point collar. But that's just IMO.
