That's extremely speculative. To me, it just looks like a cloth suit with some cool seamlines that mimic musculature in places.

Don't get me wrong, I really like both styles, but I think the comparison is reaching. It doesn't look like segmented armor at all. I'd more easily believe there was an armor mesh underneath, as has been shown in other modern Batman comics where his suit appeared (unrealistically) skin-tight.

Someone else said the neck was segmented, which I seem to remember from a couple of panels from Court of Owls. Good catch.
