  6. Curses, beaten to the Motty gag. Del Boy Trotter may also have a few spare, and he’ll do you a great price, “innit bruv”.

  7. Sadly, I think the coat is custom made. According to wikipedia, its design is a mix of “a Swedish army jacket and a frock coat from the French Revolution.” That said, while it’s nice I can’t help but wonder how it would look when not contrasted against that ridiculous mask.

  8. That is exactly what I was thinking during every scene that he was wearing it.

    Well, that and “Why is Tom Hardy doing an impression of Kenneth Williams as Darth Vader?”

  10. Oh, the joyous torment of finding a badass jacket and then realizing that you’ll never wear it because it will never be cold enough to warrant it.

  11. Or perhaps you’re wondering why you would wear a coat…in the middle of the “summer”…

    • The only thing it will do is make for a cool story.

  16. Haven’t you already got a shorter version of this?

  17. It’s Vin Diesels’ old coat from XXX

  18. Does this mean you’ll have to trade in the beanie hats for gimp masks, and ultimately that dark path probably leads to hellraiser Pinhead fashion? Anyway Amazon let me pre order Betrayer, dispatch time 2nd April 2013…

  19. That coat actually took two years to make. The designer combined ideas from Swedish army jackets and a few other heavy duty coats to create what you see. Its entirely custom, made for the Dark Knight Rises. You could steal it from Bane…..good luck with that!

  20. ‘I didn’t see the coat until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but FLUFFY!’

  21. Just seen it and all the way through I thought the same thing, no doubt if I did find a replica I wouldnt be able to afford it.

  22. It’s Arthur Daley’s.

    Comment by Michael | August 1, 2012 | Reply

  23. Its based on a Russian Army Coat called a polushubok…You can find one where they sell old Red Army gear or old Swedish Army types…They darkened the outside with Shoe Polish or dubbing…..

  24. ‘No-one cared who I was until I put on the coat’
