Adam's SCREEN WORN tunic, tights and briefs!

Post by LA Batfan »

I know there are a ton of hardcore Batman '66 costume buffs/replica makers on here, so I thought I'd post my latest acquisition for you to check out.

I was able to score Adam's screen-used tights, tunic and briefs for my collection and they're amazing!

The fabric for the tunic and tights is much heavier than I expected. And the tunic has light "blue dye" staining from the cowl around the neck, and from the briefs around the waist! It's so cool to imagine Adam getting these as he ran around under the hot studio lights.

The briefs are in great shape, (with the tell-tale Bat-velcro patch to hold the utility belt).

Needless to say, these might be the crown jewels in my collection! Enjoy the pics!

WOW!...What a SCORE!

Congrats, Ralph!!! :D

Now, you'll have to put them on a mannequin...with a Chuck Williams' Adam bust mounted at the top! ;)

So, is the light "blue dye" staining from the cowl and trunks or the original tights dye color that was protected from bleaching due to the sun and studio lights by those same cowl and trunks? Just a thought!

SWEEEEEEEEET!!!!

Yep, that old nylon was much heavier/more plush than what is made now.

Those trunks look darn near pristine!

Congratulations buddy!!!! :)

Fun stuff, Ralph, thanks for sharing!
I find you to be odious, abhorrent and insegrevious.

Oh, man - what a score! Looking at the tunic, is there any glue residue where the Bat-emblem was attached? I think I see a darker area with two small spots in the middle. The trunks were interesting, too - I have a pair of vintage basketball shorts that must be made from the same type of fabric; they're pretty heavy and have similar horizontal lines (runs?) running across the front.

So what's the backstory here? When in the series were they used? Did you get them direct from Adam, or another collector?

Thanks, gang! And, for Chris and Antman, these were in Adam's possession until he sold them via auction through Profiles in History. I got them from the auction winner.
