all the assassins creed items I bought came very fast within a week unless it was backordered and after the order went threw it arrived very fast, all very good quality.
i bought this is February and absolutely love it. The hood came apart once and it was quite easy to fix. The hood works great for a fursuit head and I can just see the tip of it through the eyes
First and foremost it needs to be said that all the "ezio" pieces in the MR line are actually from the Lineage video. Why they're trying to tell us it's from any of the games is beyond me, but I suspect they went this route since there was an actual physical original they could copy off of instead of working off the game's files and getting it wrong. SO. The doublet itself is pretty nice, it has a thick heavy feel and the tails in the back are great. I wish the front tails were longer though. The real problem as has been said before is the hood. Its only secured with some very flimsy stitching at the shoulders, and mine started to come apart after only an hour of wear. Its just an awkward fit; as anyone else who's tried it on can attest. Maybe the hood itself is too wide, but whatever the case it just doesnt look good. Also, the "emroidery" on the front lapels is just glued on, and will peel off with the slightest bit of wear
So far this is my favorite item of the collection. That being said there were a few things that will need attention. The hood needs better support as Michael said the one connection is in the way of the cape, I think it would be better if it was connected like a regular hood, just bigger than a regular hood to keep the billow effect. The other thing is the beak on the hood could use some deffinition the way it comes is just a point attatched to the front of the hood, not to beak like. To address Michaels other statement about the front of the doublet this is modeled after the version seen in the live action short film Lineage where it follows Giovanni, and in that matter it is accurate.
The Ezio doublet is quite well-made and very attractive. I don't understand why they didn't have the lower panels on like the character has in the game, but while I believe that would be more attractive (not to mention more accurate), I don't believe it takes away from the looks of the item. It does not rank five stars due to the hood being secured by one piece of thread on each side. Given that putting the whole costume on requires maneuvering it over the cape and the baldric, the predictable happened immediately, and the thread broke on one side - requiring the hood to be safety-pinned for the remainder of the wearing. Also, the hood had a tendency to shift to one side all the time. This leads me to believe that it was not sewn onto the doublet straight. Luckily, since there is only one thread and a safety pin holding it, I will probably be able to fix that easily.
I do not need to buyeth this item. I already owneth it. And formost, this is just a replica. Good item though
its will be good if thats more white than grey
