Matt Murdock wore this costume when he first began his costume adventuring as the superhero, Daredevil. He had developed it using the material from his father, "Battling' Jack Murdock's boxing robe. The costume originally consisted of a hood on the back which was primarily used to holster things such as street clothes, but would be destroyed during Daredevil’s escapades very early on in his journey for justice. He would later on abandon this costume in favor of his more recognized red costume that most readers are familiar with to this day, which he began, to make a more distinctive and comfortable costume. The costume would continue to appear mostly in flashbacks, which reminded the reader how The Man Without Fear originally began his heroics.
