These are new on their site, but I liked what I was reading on some of their reviews. Also, not a motorcycle jacket, so no padding / fake padding look to it.
I'll keep you guys posted on how it turns out.

I had been tempted by this:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Batman-Comics-Arkham-Knight-Leather/dp/B00RXL8EC0/ref=pd_sim_sbs_193_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=0BKZK2BM23XVJPCHK0HT

It is official, hence the terrible low quality production of it. I like the design, but the poor quality really put me off. These actually look like they are using decent materials to start with, how very tempting.

Nothing about DC or WB (or the word "official") on it. I've never seen anything like that be legit, but quite a few vendors are selling them, so who knows?
TheJacketMaker.com stuff all says real leather.
I'm not suggesting them since mine won't arrive for another couple of weeks, but the Bat-stuff looks cool, too:

I didn't think the Batman one looked particularly 'official' or 'licensed' either. Game (the only big UK highstreet retailer) were claiming they were, but there no longer appears to be anything on their website to say that now, although they still sell them. I doubt a big chain would directly stock and sell unlicensed goods, but then Game despite being the only big chain are not very reputable in their practices and have done some very untrustworthy things over the years.

I thought it was unofficial until I saw it claimed otherwise. Now I suspect it is still unofficial. I see the USA WB Store isn't selling it, which is probably the giveaway.

The jackets you link do look a lot better than the widely available fake leather cheapo thing and are mighty tempting. cheesy

I know how fanboys are, and the daredevil and star lord ones are getting really great reviews. If those reviews are real, then the rest of their products should be great.
Do I know they're legit? No.
If it's shitty will I get my money back? Yes.

It's here. I'm satisfied. Quick turn-around time (it shipped from Pakistan).
Nice packaging.
Real leather.
The trim is sky blue instead of the royal blue I was expecting.
If you order from them, do not pay attention to the M, L, XL sizing. Pay attention to the NUMBER. I've worn XL comfortably all my adult life, but got a XXL / 44 and it fits like a glove. It'll also keep me honest with not gaining any weight.
Oddly enough, the zipper pull is on the left side instead of the right which I'm used to. Is that a European thing?
I may can get some pics up later if anyone is interested.
