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 Filpucci Italian Wool Sweater Hoodie, $48.49 (was $108)
Banana Republic is running an Extra 50% off sale for the remainder of the holidays. The discount is applied at checkout.
This sweater is 80% extra fine Merino wool & 20% nylon. The nylon isn’t enough to impact how soft and comfy the hoodie is. The nylon will, however, make the sweater stay smooth for longer as well not absorbing moisture so the hoodie will stay warmer for longer. The thing I love about this sweater is that it looks and lays just like you’d expect a great hoodie to fit, but it’s made out of high quality materials with a lot of detail. $48 seems like a reasonable price, too.
These super-soft sweaters, designed with yarn made just for us in an Italian artisanal mill, are the perfect holiday gift.
The Jeans: J.Crew Cotton Canvas Chino in a 484 fit, $18 (was $80)
Use code SHOPNOW at checkout. Part of J.Crew’s Extra 40% off of sale styles thingy they have going on.
Not jeans, but this may be the cheapest that you’ll be able to cop these pants for quite some time. This is a low enough price that it’s in impulse-buy territory.
Our slimmest fit yet is for guys who like their chinos slim, not skinny. This pair is made with natural, unprocessed cotton that still has some flecks of cotton husks for an old-school, rustic take on a style that should be in every closet.
Retro running style defines a bold sneaker with sporty appeal. It runs small, so order a half-size up.
This is a sweet sneaker, but more as important as that: The Nordstrom Rack: Clear The Rack sale is running through January 3rd. Ridiculous deals in limited sizing. Check it out.
