Whether you’re working at a start-up, or working at 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: Old Navy Textured Zip-Hoodie, $22.80+S&H (was $44.94)
Use code SPRINGIT for 40% off of your first item and 35% off of subsequent items.
Old Navy has gone through something of a rebrand, and some of their stuff looks pretty sweet. Take this textured hoodie, for example. A slightly fitted cut, contrast stitching in the hood, a textured fabric. If I didn’t know better I would think that this came from a store that was trying to do something more than the most basic of basics. We see you, Old Navy!
The Jeans: Gap 1969 Standard Taper Fit Jeans, $29.99+S&H (was $59.95)
Use code SPRINGIT for 40% off of your entire order.
Gap has a number of jean fits in limited sizing for a great price. The pair above is their tapered-not-slim cut which is also available for the same price in a darker wash.

The Sneakers: Adidas Original Men’s Samba Sneaker, $45 (was $70)
A little spin on the Samba Classic makes this sneaker quite a bit more cool for everyday wear. The difference is a tongue-length reduction so that you don’t have to fold it over your laces, the details are bolder including more robust stripes than the original, and the rear of the shoe got a 3-leaf logo. All things that add to the looks of the shoe, but the first two will negatively impact your touch if you’re trying to play a lot of soccer.
