Whether you’re working at a start-up, or working at a company that really wants people to think that they’re hip like a startup, wearing your hoodie/jeans/sneaks is part of the uniform. Do it wrong, and you look like you’re still living with mom. Do it right, and you look like a million bucks (in unvested stock options). Here are three items — a hoodie, some jeans, and a pair of sneakers — that are on sale for a great price and worth a look this week.
The Hoodie: Old Navy Linen-Blend Popover Hoodie, $17.46 (was $24)
Use code THANKYOU for 30% off your purchase at Old Navy sitewide, no exclusions.
This lightweight linen blend hoodie will work great on cool summer days, as well as for layering. This is about as basic as it gets, and that’s what I love about it. The only note to make is that this is a relaxed fit hoodie, so if you’re a slim guy you’ll have to be careful not to drown in it.
The Jeans: Levi’s Red Tab 501 Straight Leg Jeans (Dimensional Rigid Blue), $46 (was $78)
We usually go for slim jeans here at Hacker Casual, but straight leg jeans are still a ‘thing’. These Levi’s are from Nordstroms, so along with the great price you get free shipping and free returns. These are 5-pocked button-fly jeans exactly what you’d expect in a 501.
The Sneakers: Onitsuka Tiger Alliance Sneakers, $59 (was $100)
Use code SCORE at checkout for 40% of all clearance items at JCrew.
Available in lots of sizes in Blue, but the arguably more handsome White sneak has limited sizing. The Alliance has perforated suede uppers and a lightweight throwback running shoe. I think it’s crazy how expensive they normally try to sell these for at over $100 for a sneaker. $60 is the cost of an entry-level non-discounted New Balance sneak, so this is much closer to a good price for these sneakers.
