Re: Possible TDK Undersuit fabric lead?


I pulled out a water backpack that i have for walking. I noticed there is some heavy duty mesh on it as well as some cheaper mesh. The heavy duty one though is in the shape of a diamond and looks like what they are using in the dark knight suit.

What we need is some set pics of them putting Bale into the suit. Cause I would guess the chest, bicep armor is separate while the rest was all either sewn onto the suit or glued.

The ribbed stuff under the mesh though whats all your take on it. I know there is a thread about it but It could be designed for airflow to help keep Bale and stuntmen cool. All it would take is some select spots to put holes in it and you'd get some air flow. It'd still be hot but any air flow helps.

Anyway I'm probably gonna go the route of generic mesh that looks close enough. Close enough is Close enough besides I have a lot of work to do with scuplting first and what not.

Re: Possible TDK Undersuit fabric lead?


I have finally gotten a hold of someone. I have been talking with him and hopefully will have more info. This fabric supplier was suggested by tsuyosa and appear to have 3 of the fabrics used for the suit. The bad news and I don't know how bad till I hear back from them, but they do have a minimum order because they are a wholesale supplier. I am checking with them to see what that is.

Thanks for your hard work, Keith. I appreciate it and I'm sure others do too. I know how tough it can be to deal with wholesalers so let me know if I can be of any assistance.

Heard back from the fabric supplier and I have bad news the minimum quantity to the order is in the thousands. I did ask what the cost would be just to see for kicks, but I'm certain its well out of our range. Sad thing is I believe this place would of nailed down three of the fabrics in one shot. I do have some other leads Ill keep pushing through.

That's a real kick in the balls. Oh well, we'll find other sources, it'll just take some time.

That was some awesome detective work you did, though. :up

Hi guys,the fabric used in TDK suit was sourced from the UK. This is where the suits for the world premieres got their mesh fabric from. Narrowed it done to country at least emoticon

Re: Possible TDK Undersuit fabric lead?


keith... this company you talked to is a distributor, right?

Would it possible to get one of his clients to sell us the quantity needed? I'm pretty sure it would have to be a one shot deal, not to break the balls of anyone, but I think it's plausible.

One way or another, thx a lot for your research, mate.

Ak, been MIA the past few days so i missed the post on this.

Glad you did get a hold of someone! I tried shooting some e-mails but didn't hear back.

I guess the next step would be to find clients, as a10#### suggested
