It’s the stereotypical hacker outfit. 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.
This is my personal go-to hoodie. It’s thick enough that it has some form to it and it keeps you warm. The drawstring is a thick weave that adds some interesting detail. My two gripes: I have a big dome and the hood only comes up to the halfway point when I try and put it up, and they put the zipper on the opposite side of the rest of my jackets. I really think they’re monsters for the zipper thing, it gets me every time!
Given those two gripes, I have one in Dark Grey and I’m thinking about picking up the one in Plum (pictured below). The price:quality ratio is too high for me to pass this up.
Even at their regular $30 these jeans are better to cop than a full-priced pair of Levi’s (I’m talking about paying more than $50 a pair), and at $14.99 they’re impossible to pass up. These UNIQLOs are very comfortable jeans, and even though they’re a slim taper they can accomodate some larger thighs than the Levi’s 511 do. Pictured below are the navy pants, which are in very limited sizing. There’s a slightly lighter blue available in this fit and at the same price. If you’ve never owned a pair of UNIQLO jeans before, this is a great price to give them a try!
I love the look of these sneakers. They really let people know that you plan on chilling all day. Are you dadcore enough to pull them off?
