> Something that few comic book readers realize is that in Batman's first appearance Batman had a bullet proof best underneath his costume.

And later costumes weren't bulletproof at all.

> Also, the movie Batsuits have been closer to the comic book Batsuit than Adam West's Batsuit which is basically just a pajama.

Not at all, since pyjamas are essentially what Batman wore in the comics for decades. It's only since Dark Knight Returns and Year One, that body armour has played any part in his standard costume. Prior to that he wore fabric, even in your much mentioned classics like "Daughter of the Demon". Heck even Robin didn't get body armour in his tunic until the second iteration of Jason Todd.

> In the comics, the Batsuit was always some sort of uniform, not just clothes like some people think.

That doesn't actually make any sense as a sentence, since uniforms ARE clothes.
