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.
TIL Patagonia spells hoodie with a ‘y’ — did you know that? Whatever. This hoodie has the classic Patagonia look of their pullover but adds on the hood.
From a review:
My favorite piece of clothing. I think I have three now.
Without the sale, three of these comes to $400. Today, you’re getting in under $200. Maybe you don’t need three though.
Feeling more angel investor this week? These mock zip sweaters are on sale over at Woolovers.
The Jeans: Levi’s 511 Moleskin Pant, $40 (was $70)
We like Levi’s 511 and Urban Outfitters has these marked down for just $40. Not your typical denim, here’s the description:
Soft + fuzzy blended cotton construction with a touch of stretch for movement and tonal stitching for durability. Finished with Levi’s iconic logo tags and classic pocket stitching on the back. Since 1873, Levi’s has sttod [sic] for classic American style and effortless cool.
Last sentence makes me want to vomit, but they’re probably right.
The Sneakers: Nike ‘Paul Rodriguez – Citadel’ Sneaker, $60 (was $100)
These guys are 40% off thanks to a Nordstrom sale, but that makes sizing limited. I kinda dig the backwards logo.
