One of Batman’s more physically powerful and intellectual enemies is Bane. The character played
by Tom Hardy. The costume designers have shown the villain that took down Gotham City wearing a
leather jacket in exceptional uniqueness.

Bane is a terrorist, has a florid speech and the physique of a gorilla. He is brutal in his fighting style and is
more menacing than any of the other villains of the previous Batman movies. 2

The Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming the designer of Bane’s shearling-and-brown coat
mentions in an interview. The plan was to induce a French Revolutionary-style high-standing collar,
which goes up and then comes back down. Inspiration was sought from military wear, the kind that
mercenaries would wear in Eastern Europe or Northern Pakistan. This killer looking jacket was made by
Belstaff the luxury British brand.3

Interestingly, the first model used was a shearling Swedish winter coat. It was worn by the Swedish
Army officers in the 1930’s it is better known as M1909 Field Coat however, some modifications were
made for Tom Hardy’s character giving it a more modern look.4
