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.
The Hoodie: Polo Ralph Lauren Full-Zip Fleece Hoodie, $44.79 + Shipping (originally $98.50)
Make sure to get an extra 20% off of your order with the code “VETDAY” to get the price listed above. This is a part of Macy’s Veteran’s Day sale, which is an extra 25% off of clearance, as well as 25% to 65% off of select styles. If you order over $75 you’ll get free shipping on top of everything else.
Anyway, onto the hoodie. You know that you’re getting high quality when you buy from Ralph Lauren, even their Polo line. The biggest gripe that I have with them is their in-your-face branding. I usually try to avoid big brands on my chest unless it’s my team’s game day, so I’m happy to see that RL put only the tiniest of logos on this hoodie. It’s fleece so it’ll be comfy! As an unrelated aside, maybe I should start working out…
The Jeans: Gap 1969 slim fit jeans (resin rinse wash), $41.97 + FS (regularly $69.95)
Be sure to apply the code “FFSALE” at checkout to get the price above. Gap’s Friends and Family sale is wrapping up today, so pick up a few of the items you’ve been keeping your eye on while the getting’s good! Gap’s slim jeans are a staple and their resin wash is perfect for putting together work outfits without your jeans looking too casual. Resin rinse wash means that the jean’s wash is a resin rinse, super straightforward right?! The Gap resin rinse wash jeans are pictured below.
A second option for when that sale ends are the slim, straight legged jeans from Old Navy that are marked down to $19.00. Old Navy’s quality has been hit or miss for me, but if their $19.00 jeans don’t work out great then I’ll just add them to my “working on the car B-team” straight-away!
The Sneakers: Nike ‘Zoom Stefan Janoski SB’ Skate Shoe, $69.98 (regularly $85.00)
Nordstrom’s Fall Clearance Sale allows you to save up to 40% off through November 15th, and there’s no codes with this one. This shoe is a printed canvas with a “Zoom unit” in the sole. That zoom tech will give you added comfort in the sole (like nike’s air tech), but is lightweight and minimal enough that you won’t feel like you’re wearing boots. This shoe also has a removable insole which, if you’re looking to give your feet a gift for the holidays, makes this shoe a prime candidate for an insole upgrade.
