Because Bruce Wayne wasn’t already fresh enough!
Christian Bale got hooked up with some sweet custom Armani suits to play Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight Rises.
Costume designer Lindy Hemming created one charcoal grey pinstripe, two-button suit and another in grey plaid, which both feature the Giorgio Armani for Bruce Wayne label.
Armani bespoke about the suits, saying:
"In the lexicon of superheroes, it's an honor to be associated with such an intriguing character as Bruce Wayne. It's a privilege that the role again partners me with the talented Lindy Hemming, to create another classic look that projects strength and consistency in Wayne's edgy, mysterious world. To be involved with the design process for a tremendous talent like Christian Bale is a rewarding experience. I'm thrilled to play a small role in the Dark Knight legacy."
As are we, King Giorgio, as are we!
Of course the designer didn't stop at Christian Bale. Armani also clothed his co-stars Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anne Hathaway.
Now we have even more to look for in the film!
