The outfit wore to play the villainous Joker in "Batman" is to go under the hammer in a film memorabilia auction. The three-piece suit, created by Saville Row tailor Tommy Nutter for the 1989 comic book movie, is expected to sell as much as $15,000 when it is sold next month.

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 on the cover of their "" album.

Nicholson's role as Joker was succeeded by the late who appeared in the 2008 "". Ledger's version kept the purple coat but changed the vest to green.
