Look Magnifico In This Assassin's Creed-Inspired Hoodie


Diving into a bale of hay from sixty stories has never looked so fashionable.

If there's one thing that the Assassin's Creed series has taught me is that it can be awfully hard for an assassin to blend into a crowd, especially when you don't look the part. Enter Enzo Volante and his one-man company, Volante Design. Inspired by the free-running master assassins of the Assassin's Creed games, Volante has designed and produced a clothing line of hoodies that put a modern spin on the acclaimed action-adventure series.

In his own words, Volante takes "inspiration from comic books, videogames, film, anime, and anywhere else we can find heroes and villains" to make some very unique (and nifty!) looking clothing. Volante's previous works have included a yellow-and-blue Captain America-style jacket. [http://volantedesign.tumblr.com/post/16593571586]

The standard "Modern Assassin Armor" hoodie comes in both men's and womens at approximately $155 USD apiece, with options available for un-lined denim at $240 USD or lined denim at $350. And just in case the colors aren't to your liking, Enzo here [http://volantedesign.tumblr.com/about] to view the rest of his designs.

The black and red one looks totally sweet... but there's no way I could justify paying that much for a hoodie. Still... want one.

150's a bit steep for me. Now if they were a cheaper, I might buy one, but for 150 I could probably bribe my mom into making one

Just don't carry Skittles while wearing it. It draws the automatic attention of nearby guards.

That said, how many of us are really clamoring to wear Desmond's gear.

Desmond fan representing!
Though I may be the only one in the world...

They do a non-Desmond peaked hoodie as well. Nothing quite as cool as this, it has to be said, but a damn sight cheaper...

I really love the one with the purple trimmings, but the dude's smoking some good shit if he thinks I'm parting with $350 for a jacket. What I'll instead do is take the design to a tailor and have one made for half the price, still steep but way easier to justify in hindsight.

Your not the only one! I've been dying for a full modern AC game with Desmond as the main focus for once...

Good to know!
Yeah I'm looking forward to that actually happening, as his story's been pretty interesting to hear so far. Plus it'll feel like training him in the previous games was actually worth it...

Oh that looks cool. I am strongly considering buying this, one can never have too much-- $150? No thanks.

I am wondering, why is it so expensive; seriously 100-300$ (check the website it goes down to 90) there must be a good reason...

Well they have the following picture, stating 'Female model is 5'5 wearing size Medium':
<spoiler=Strangely Huge Picture>http://store.ubiworkshop.com/product_images/l/413/des-hoodie-white-front-wmen__76833_zoom.jpg

Doesn't really look cut like a woman's hoodie though. I guess they're calling it unisex :/
