Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

But what I refer to is my Assassin gear. When I first started, I thought one Assassin hoodie was enough, but it has grown far beyond that. And since it did so organically, and of it’s own accord, the whole thing has gotten quite muddled and confusing. So this is an attempt to explain what is available, what will be available, and perhaps touch on what is on the docket. [Not necessarily in the order they were released]
First, my Original Assassin Zip-up Hoodie.It looks like this:
The cost for this one is $145, and while I have only made it for men so far, it can be ordered by either men or women, and the pattern will be adjusted to fit properly.
Next is what I called the Pullover hoodie but am now calling the Assassin Beaked Hoodie:
This one is also available for men and women, and will look essentially the same except with a different shape. It is also now available as a pullover and with a zipper. The difference will be that the zipper version will have a closer fit. This is because the pullover has to be able to get over your shoulders and chest, and the fabric does not have much stretch. Pullover is $90, and the Zipper version is $105.
The last one is split into a separate style for men and women, and also has 3 options at different price points; the Modern Assassin Armor. The men’s style looks like this:
And the women’s style looks like this:
Despite the fact that I haven’t made all of the style/option combinations available, both men’s and women’s are available as either sweatshirt [$155], un-lined denim jacket [$240], or lined denim [$350].
The sweatshirt version has cuffed sleeves and an external patch-type pocket and very limited color options.
The un-lined denim has two external single-welt pockets, and an inside breast pocket on the left side of the chest, as well as a virtually unlimited selection of colors, based on what I can find at fabric stores and online stores.
The lined denim is similar to it’s unlined counterpart, except with satin lining it is slightly warmer to wear, and more comfortable against your skin.
My future projects include the Ancestors series, intended to be modern reinterpretations of the main characters from the Assassin’s Creed series. Of which, I have posted sketches for the Kenway and Auditore designs, but there are more to come in that series. These jackets are not available yet, and will become available as soon as I complete the pattern designs and prototypes.
I also intend to do a series of modern assassin gear, including, but not limited to: free-running optimized Assassin pants, ‘low-profile’ Assassin waistcoat and blazer, and some accessories, like an Assassin wallet/phone hip-holster.
Ideas are streaming from my head faster than I can draw them. And I’m drawing them faster than I can design the patterns. I appreciate your support and patience, and hope you like what I come up with.
