Not bad. They're a little on the expensive side, but I gotta say they look pretty cool! The eagle on the back is nice, and the zipper has a metal Assassin symbol on it, also a good design move if I do say so myself http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
They come in different colors, check the link.

Just thought it was worth sharing. I might get the white one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Man, these look amazing, but 90$ is way too much, especially since I live outside of the US, so I have to add shipping and pay the price 3.5 times more since thats the currency for dollars here.

It looks really darn good, but I do wish they'd done a few things differently. For that price, I'd actually expect cotton instead of polyesther, and the zippers on the pockets as well as the netting on the sides of the hood weren't in the original design. Shipping rates would kill the cost for me as well!

A friend of mine showed me this a while back, and I think this fan-made one by Dei-sandvich (http://dei-sandvich.tumblr.com/tagged/desmond_hoodie) over at Tumblr still trumps the Ubisoft one. Cotton, and I like the way she embroidered the logo compared to the Ubi one, although I like how the Ubi one's more eye-catching as well.

Unfortunately, she only does it as a special commission, and both are kind of way out of my budget considering I'm still saving up for ACR this November, so yeah. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif (just admires both from a distance)

Yeah thorne, that one does look better imo. I think the hood on the Ubi one looks quite terrible actualy.

That one would also go for $180 :P

I pre-ordered the Black one without eagle, just like the style of the hoodie, it's not really for cosplay purposes, i just love hoodies :P

I'd probably rather pay $180 for the fan made one. I mean, look at the hood on the Ubi one, it just looks terrible. Not so bad on the black but the white is just ugly.

i do like the black one, but i don't think the hood is too small.

Overall it looks pretty neat but I don't like the viewthrough fabric. To me, it just doesn't blend in well with the rest of the fabric (inside and out).

And is that how the embroidered eagle looked like in game? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Yay, a hoodie that is way too overpriced. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

No beak, no money. You know what we want Ubisoft. Besides, the sweatshirt is a bit much. Maybe if it had a beak that price would be reasonable.

Desmond's hoodie =/= beak

Nuff said

why do ppl keep asking for the beak? desmond's hoodie doesn't have it in the game so why should a replica of it have it

It's so nice of Ubisoft to give us a replica of Desmond's hoodie. They definitely aren't ripping their LOYAL FANBASE off.
First they don't listen to our criticism and now they are ripping us off. Sounds like a move Crapcom would make.

haha. well they could add it some time soon, proabably are. however they would need to change 2 other things as well. the sight thing in the hoodie should be the same color as the interior. and the hood should be bigger, it should cover our eyes.

I just hope they can find some way to give him a present-day look with the eagle tail bit.
