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: Banana Republic Silk Cotton Cashmere Sweater Hoodie, $59.10 + Free Shipping over $50 (was $98.50)
With code GIVING.
75% Silk, 20% Cotton, 5% Cashmere. You’ll be surprised how warm this hoodie is. It’s thin and nice enough to wear to work layered with a collared shirt underneath. There’s no reason that you shouldn’t be warm and comfy just because of some pesky dress code!
The Jeans: Banana Republic Slim Five-Pocket Cord, $34.50 + S&H (was $69.50)
With code GIVING.
It feels like once a month we’re crossing a line to toss in a pair of burgundy 5-pocket corduroys instead of jeans, but these in particular are the best price for a high-quality pair we’ve found so far. The perfect color to hide the blood after your family gathering takes a turn for the worse.
The Sneakers: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hiker 2, $49.98 + FS over $25 (was $74.99)
I’m in love with these shoes. They have a cushioned insole and some padding around the hi-top. These aren’t your grandpa’s basketball shoes, but they also aren’t appropriate for actually going hiking (still has the normal tread on the bottom). These are perfect for city dweller putting a lot of miles on their shoes. I may just be a sucker for round boot laces on sneakers.
