In Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, several outfits are available to those who complete certain challenges or meet specific criteria, which are listed below. Once an outfit is unlocked and equipped, it will alter Edward Kenway's appearance. Edward could change his outfits in the cabin of his ship, the Jackdaw; at any general store throughout the West Indies; or in the basement of his manor on Great Inagua.

Stealth outfit

Earned after completing half of the Assassin's contracts, this outfit was specifically designed to improve the chances that its wearer would remain undetected.

Mayan outfit

Earned after acquiring all of the keystones from Mayan stelae, this outfit was created using scavenged First Civilization materials and had the ability to deflect metal projectiles.

Edward the Legend outfit

Redeemed on Uplay and worn by Edward for a brief time near the end of his career – as Captain Edward Kenway, Legend of the Open Sea – he once had the taste for the finer, flashier things in life.

Hunter outfit

Requiring a Red Howler monkey pelt and a White Jaguar pelt to be crafted, this is a traditional hunting outfit that considerably reduces an animal's range of detection.

  • The descriptions for the Explorer and Merchant outfits appear to be stated erroneously, as their colorations are reversed.
  • Duncan Walpole's robes, as well as the Politician, Governor and Officer outfits, all share the same design.
  • Haytham Kenway's overcoat, as well as the Privateer, Pirate captain, Explorer and Merchant outfits, all share the same design with Edward Kenway's robes.
  • The Stealth outfit is nearly identical to Ah Tabai's robes, with the exception of the hood.
  • Upon obtaining the Templar armor, it could still be found inside the gibbet at the Great Inagua's manor, even if Edward was wearing it.
  • The red sash tightly woven under the leather belt of Altaïr's robes does not flow freely at all and remains stationary.
  • The Templar armor bore similarities to the robes worn by Shay Cormac following his induction into the Templar Order.
  • In Black Flag trailers, Edward Kenway's robe contains two differences compared to that in the game. They are the two pistol holsters in the back rather than holster straps, and a bright blue portion in the robe's lower parts rather than the dark blue in the game.
