    It's pretty nifty. The sort of merchandising that hasn't been done before. I remember when Tim Burton's Batman came out, there was hoodies and jackets, but not anything to this extent.

    I don't think Roc-a-Wear is going to do to well in this venture, though. Unless the clothes are relatively cheap and the movie is absolutely amazing, why would anyone jump at the opportunity to buy this stuff?

    Still, I wouldn't mind a belt buckle for novelty purposes.

    batman is the jam! but rocawear (dispite the fact I like some of their designs) rocawear is just a hack urban street wear brand that is only in existance so that Jay-z can get more of peoples cash. I don't blame him though and I even have been caught up listening to some of his older stuff. But basiclly I don't think that Rocawear deserves the opprotunity to rep batman. seriouly;

    "Fabrications include jersey, distressed denim from light to dark finishes, brushed tricot and cotton-poly blends"

    Wow real original real effort a whole lot of design consideration and creativity over at rocawear!
    Design meetings go like this: HOW CAN WE GET PAID OFF a stupid american youth market. O i know give em shit they can already get at the gap for 5x's the price but put or name on the tag, yes yes

    Anyway I hope the new bruce wayne movie is good.....my$.02

    I remember the first time I got caught shoplifting by my mom was when I was nine years old - for Batman (the movie) merchandise. Kids are going to eat this stuff up. I think pre-teens and 'tweens' are the people to market towards when trying to make more than just a buck.

    I've never worn anything Rocawear before (non-athletic clothes that can be purchased at Foot Locker or Athlete's World are not my thing), but a nice golf shirt with a Batman logo on it might look pretty nice.
