Take a look at Greg Capullo's design for the 1770's Talon design.
From Josh Kushins at DC's Blog,
The "Night of the Owls" is coming this May, pitting the extended Bat-family against the deadly Court of Owls. A shadowy secret society with roots that date back to Gotham City's earliest history, the Court employs a cadre of timeless, sinister assassins known as Talons to execute its malevolent will.
"Same approach as the 1660s owl, basically," said BATMAN artist Greg Capullo of the 1770s Talon, who will be resurrected to menace BATMAN AND ROBIN. "I looked at that period's military. I was happy to find less frilly stuff. Overall, the period looks more bad-ass, despite the stockings."
