Joker suit up for auction

The three-piece suit, created by Saville Row tailor Tommy Nutter for the 1989 comic book movie, is expected to fetch as much as $15,000 (£10,000) when it is sold next month (Aug10).

A spokesperson for auction house Bonhams says, “It might be Batman enthusiasts who want the suit, or collectors of Tommy Nutter. There is a crossover of interest.”

Nutter became famous for his classic suits, which were also worn by The Beatles on the cover of their Abbey Road album.
