That wasn't seen in comics untill B89.
And there's more than one feature in the BB's bat-suit that reminds the Schumacher bat-nonar suit.
And TDK was the same but busier and oh, yes, leaving some spandex between the black armoured plates.
Now, it's not like Nolan just copied the previous suits. He made variations of them just as Burton did it varying the B89 suit and then Schumacher did with Burton's bat-suits.
Completely re-design would have used the comic book colors and another idea than the black armoured suit.
