Whether you’re working at a start-up, or working at a company that really wants people to think that they’re hip like 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: Everlane Pullover Hoodie Sweatshirt, $58 + S&H (never goes on sale)
Sleek french terry cotton knit hoodie, manufactured in Vietnam. Features a lined hood and topstitch seam detailing. If you click through to their site Everlane gives you a rundown of all of their costs in making this garment, and they charge what they feel is a fair price to purchase it. Awesome hoodie, awesome company mission.
The Jeans: Custom Tapered Levi’s 501 jeans, $29.99 + S&H (was $78)
You know what you’re getting with Levi’s. Apparently Urban Outfitters doesn’t.
The picture below is from the Levi’s site instead of from UO (link above). UO has a great price, but all of their product images are of a deep indigo pair of Levi’s 505s instead of the Levi’s 501 CT. Below are the 501CTs, a straight leg jean with slight taper. Since now you know what fit you’re getting, you’re now informed enough to take advantage of the awesome price from UO without being super disappointed!
The Sneakers: Puma Smash Ripstop, $39.97 (was $55)
Low-top kicks with a textured ripstop nylon upper. Tennis-inspired (hence the ‘smash’ in the name), these are made for the street with just enough padding to keep your feet from getting too tired on your commute to work.
