An original costume used in the production of Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, the 1987 superhero sequel starring Christopher Reeve in the title role.
Prisoner costumes such as this can be seen early in the movie as Lenny Luthor (Jon Cryer) springs his uncle Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) from prison and later as he is returned there by Superman (Christopher Reeve). The two piece costume was created by leading industry costumiers Bermans & Nathans and comprises of grey and cream striped shirt and trousers with the shirt featuring rubber buttons a prisoner identification number patch to the left breast. To the interior collar of the shirt is a printed Bermans & Nathans label with barcode with the trousers featuring a further label hand inscribed with the waist size 42.
The costume remains in excellent production used condition with some minor staining and a small hole to the trousers, overall very fine.
A fine example of original wardrobe from this classic superhero franchise.
