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.
Welcome to the Hoodies/Jeans/Sneakers monochrome edition!
The Hoodie: UNIQLO Men Long Sleeve Full-Zip Hoodie, $18+S&H (was $35)
Uniqlo does “the basics” very well, and at great prices. Comfy and durable is exactly what we want a hoodie! Available in a variety of colors, but with limited sizing. If you pick your size from the dropdown, Uniqlo’s site automatically filters for available colors.
If you’re looking for something with more structure, Uniqlo’s windproof hoodies are on sale for $18 too!
The Jeans: Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren Straight-Fit Jeans, $47.99+S&H (was $80)
Use the 20% off code HEART at checkout to get the price listed above.
Are you still looking around for a pair of black jeans? Do you love America? These Denim & Supply-line jeans from Ralph Lauren have a relatively gaudy american flag as their waistband label (you can check that out at the link above), but besides that they’re a nice pair of jeans. They’ll definitely tide you over while you’re saving up to buy those $300 RRL jeans that you’ve had your eye on. They’re slim, straight, and slightly distressed. Exactly what you’d expect from jeans these days.
The Sneakers: New Balance Men’s 501, $60 + S&H (was $70)
Super-clean classics. I own a pair of 501s that we featured a few weeks ago, and I love them. I get a surprising number of compliments on those new sneakers, mostly having to do with the classic styling. They’re comfy too. Maybe a little bit too soft to go for a run, but great for walking around town.
If you have Prime you’ll save a few bucks ordering it over at Amazon. Shipping kills deals sometimes!
