For the first time in the history of live-action Batman movies, there is a Batman movie that actually hints that Bruce Wayne did roll up his sleeves to work on his gadgets and gears, including the Batmobile. Granted, we never actually see him in action and therefore, we will never know what was he wearing when putting together his crime-fighting muscle car. But thanks to Carhartt, we may have some idea…
The more-than-a-century old American workwear company has partnered with DC and Warner Bros. to reveal an all-new, limited-edition Carhartt x The Batman collection inspired by the latest Batman film (which is totally worth the watch, btw). Built by Carhartt, the premium workwear collection is influenced by the Cape Crusader’s durable, crime-stopping gear.
The collection features an assortment of hats, sweatshirts, a t-shirt, a jacket, and iron-on patches. Here is the official description of each item straight from the horse’s mouth:
The Batman Chore Coat
Inspired by the idea of a modular utility belt, this coat’s pocketing can house the tools for any task at hand. The coat also features a quilted lining, adjustable cuffs, extra stretch across the shoulders, and pleated elbows for increased flexibility. A reflective Carhartt patch is also featured on the left chest pocket. The highlight is the hidden message “I am the shadows” under the collar. Finally, there is an interior label that assigns each jacket a production number, making it a truly limited edition. Available in limited quantities.
The Batman Midweight Sweatshirt
With a reflective Bat emblem on the chest and a Carhartt patch on the pocket, this loose-fit sweatshirt is guaranteed comfort. It features an attached three-piece hood with drawcord closure, a front handwarmer pocket, a reinforced waistband, and rib-knit cuffs.
The Batman Midweight Logo Sleeve Sweatshirt
This midweight cotton blend offers everyday versatility and features our signature logo on one sleeve while the opposite sleeve has the Bat emblem for a perfect pairing. The logos are both reflective, giving the wearer extra protection in the shadows or in the light.
The Batman Relaxed Fit T-Shirt
The Carhartt iconic durable workwear pocket t-shirt features a reflective Carhartt X The Batman logo with bats flying off of it into the darkness. Its side-seamed construction minimizes twisting and has a tagless neck label for added comfort. It’s made with heavy-weight cotton and a relaxed fit to provide room to move, whether wearing when battling villains or just handling a tough day on the job.
The Selina Kyle Beanie
This black, stretchable, rib-knit beanie was designed for fans’ inner Catwoman and features a reflective Carhartt logo patch on one side and embroidered Bat emblem on the back in dark grey, with a hint of cat ears built into the silhouette.
The Batman Reflective Patch Beanie
Based on the iconic Carhartt beanie, this red, stretchable rib-knit beanie features a fold-up cuff, Carhartt logo patch, and reflective black Bat emblem.
The Batman Carhartt Beanie
This black stretchable acrylic rib-knit beanie features a fold-up cuff with the Bat emblem and Carhartt logo embroidered in red, inspired by the film art.
If you look closely, the sweatshirt and the chore coat kinda looked like the one Bruce Wayne wore in the movie (less the logo, of course). I could be wrong. Anyhoo, while Bruce Wayne will probably not wear Batman insignia decorated apparel, you are totally free to do so.
The collection will be available to buy starting April 6, 2022, at Carhartt. Meanwhile, interested fans may want to keep their eyes peeled on this dedicated page on Carhartt.com for the entire range and details.
