The robes have been a symbol of the Assassins in both games. The Idea of a flamboyantly dressed Assassins blending in with the crowd adds to the magic of the Assassins.But with the modern Assassins, they would stand out a mile if wearing robes.

I think that modern assassins would be more like ninjas. They'd be all black and would only carry out missions when it's dark. Think Splinter Cell.

God. Assassins ARE NOT ninjas.
They probably wear normal white clothes with eagle motifs on them. Maybe Hoods or Robes on special occasions

Ninja don't even wear all black, they wear disguises most of the time and only black the few times they have to sneak around at night.

Probably either a T-shirt and jeans, or a suit, or whatever blends in with the crowd around their target. Assassins have hopefully gotten smarter these days. >_> --- Do not enter the city. It belongs to the dead now.

It's not about stealth it's about sending a message.
The robes aren't for blending or comfort or any other rason than to be noticed when they make a kill.

prolly suit or trench coat style. Looking extra sharp i guess cuz all the outfits from AC2 just stands out in the crowd.

^Yes. White suede trench coats. And those who are found out wear straightjackets. --- "The point of war is not to die for your country. It's to make the enemy die for his." -Rethal GT and Wii Number in quote.
