Hey everyone! I'm not sure where the proper place to post this is so hopefully this is okay. Anyway I'm trying to buy a gift for my boyfriend who is obsessed with AC, but I'm not that familiar with the game. All I know is he collects things (so posters, anything to do with the actual game is out). I'm pretty sure his favorite character is Desmond Miles. I was thinking of getting him an AC hoodie because he once spoke of "getting the hoodie." The thing is after I did a search for it multiple pictures came up and I'm not sure which one he was talking about or rather, which one is the most authentic to the game. If you guys wouldn't mind identifying it for me? Which one would you as an AC fan, if you were in the situation want? Most of these hoodies come in several colors too so if the color is wrong, let me know :)

Here are the ones I found:

Also, If you guys have any other gift suggestions for me I'd greatly appreciate that as well. Thanks in advance you guys :)

If he says "the hoodie" he means the Desmond Miles-Hoodie, not the Assassin Robe.
If he like collectors-stuff, you may buy the Connor-Statue (here (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss/181-9420877-0795444?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=connor+statue)) or a "hidden blade" from Game Stop for something like 40 bucks. (i guess you can buy it there) (looks like this (http://www.amazon.com/Assassins-Auditore-Gauntlet-Hidden-Replica/dp/B009TJV6D8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1363547945&sr=8-1&keywords=hidden+blade)).
Or maybe a collectors edition of Assassins Creed IV (I'm pretty sre he has AC3).
Because this game is not release yet, you'd have to buy a gift card (depending on the price, which will be announced soon (i hope so)).
You could say "hey, guess who will get a AC4 Collectors editiooooooon!", or anything like that :DDD

But in general, if he really likes Desmond that much, the Desmond-Clothes are the way to go (in my opinion).
I like this stuff pretty much, but haven't owned it yet :/

Greetings

Edit: The first picture doesn't show a Desmond-Miles hoodie, does it?
Correct me if I'm wrong :O

You are some amazing girlfriend for caring so much.
Anyway, the first and last pictures does pressent the Hoodie - but are innacturate to the actual one. (Buying any of those will probably cause him to be a bit dissapointed), to avoid making those mistakes I would suggest you to look at this gallery of Desmond Miles pictures (specially the third one which actualy shows how the hood looks).

Edit: I just wanted to note that you would most likely want to avoid concept art as it might be inaccurate to what actually made it to the final game.
