Although it is no secret that Tony Stark is quite detail-oriented when it comes to his armor's aesthetic, some tend to overlook that the billionaire playboy also doesn't cut corners when it comes to his apparel underneath the weaponized shell. Recently, the propmaker for 2010's Iron Man 2 provided a detailed glimpse at Tony's undersuit not featured within the film's final cut.
By way of social media, Ironhead Studios showed off images of the outfit. "In 2009 we built an undersuit for Ironman 2 for [Robert Downey Jr.]," they wrote. "It was worn during filming, but never made it to the screen. Here's some behind-the-scenes fitting photos on a fit model. Special thanks to Steve Wang for helping with this project." Despite this variant not appearing on-screen, Tony can be seen wearing the undersuit within a deleted scene from the film.
