Whether you’re working at a start-up, or a company that really wants people to think that they’re as cool as a startup, wearing your hoodie/jeans/sneaks is part of the uniform. 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: Puma Lightweight Zip-Up Hoodie, $27 + S&H (was $45)
Part of Puma’s Private Sale, this hoodie is 60% off. It’s a slim and sleek cotton/poly/elastene blend that’s lightweight enough that it’s perfect for layering.
There’s nothing better than a lightweight, comfy sweatshirt that you can zip up on your way out the door. Sure to become a wardrobe staple, this hoodie boasts a comfortable material, kangaroo pockets, and contrast color paneling for easy-to-wear style.
If you have unlimited money (it is that time of year when you options may have vested), this Ferarri hoodie is 50% off thanks to the Puma sale too. Just $250! Ha! But seriously, I kinda want it.
The Jeans: Levi’s 522 Slim-Fit Tapered Jeans, Indigo Black, $39 (was $70, sale ends Monday 2/15)
We usually like our Levi’s 511s (slim, straight) or the Levis 501s (straight), but we rarely mention the 522s. If you recall from our Levi’s cut comparison the 522 is a little more form-fitting than the 511 without being a true skinny jean. If you’re into that fit, this pair of jeans in the Indigo Black wash is a great deal! Levi’s said it best:
Sleek. Dark. Versatile. Need we say more?
If you’re still more interested in 511s, they’re hanging right around $45 at Amazon. Not a great price, but not terrible either.
The Sneakers: Puma R698 Knit Mesh Sneakers, $54 + S&H (was $90)
I, personally, blame the popularity of grey knit sneakers on Yeezy. No matter the source, Puma’s version is both comfortable and, thanks to the Puma Private Sale, they’re 60% off. The design for this shoe rests squarely in the early 90s (1991 to be exact, according to Puma), but the grey knit upper is the modern twist. There’s a lot less in-your-face branding on this shoe than a typical Puma, but the shillouette gives it away immediately.
