The Bane Guide to Outerwear

So, we saw the Dark Knight Rises and... we don’t want to risk giving anything away. So we’ve decided to focus instead on Bane’s rather excellent collection of winter coats. 

As expected Tom Hardy's character pulls off an impressive mastery in the field of ultraviolence, with a voice that sits somewhere between Brian Blessed and Dr Evil.

What we didn't expect from Batman’s latest nemesis however was an effortless showcase in some of this winter's key coat trends.

The Sheepskin
The three-quarter length sheepskin has definitely recovered from its comedy football manager reputation. Bane wears it proudly unbuttoned and collar up in a fitted style - far better than baggy and shaggy option.

This one from CP Company for A/W 12 is a good option - double-breasted with leather pocket, shoulder and sleeve panels. The post-apocalyptic body armour vest is optional.


The Belted Biker Jacket
The classic Belted Biker in coated linen is as flexible and multi-purpose as a winter jacket can be - as at home during an urban terrorist siege as it for a weekend in the country. Barbour's Duralinen International Jacket (£159) has just the right balance of rugged and refined.


The Trench
Back in the real world, Tom Hardy showed how to do the red carpet in style bedecked in a classic tan lightweight Burberry trench (£995) - a wise choice for London in July.

If you really want to go authentic and have trouble forming meaningful human relationships, you can make your own Bane mask
