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: Silk Cotton Cashmere Sweater Hoodie, $44.99 (was $74.99)
Part of Banana Republic’s 40% off sale, the discount is applied at checkout.
We in that season where we’re going to be talking about the evenings being a little cool instead of it being cold all day. This sweater is perfect for layering on those cool evenings. Crafted from 75% silk, 20% cotton, 5% cashmere this sweater will make you feel soft and fancy. At $80 I’d feel obligated to be careful with it, but at $45 it’s priced at normal hoodie range. Still though, check out the washing instructions and don’t wear it for rugby.
The Jeans: Levi’s 511 Slim Fit Motion Jeans, $27+S&H (was $37, list $74)
Levi’s is throwing a 40% off sale with a ton of great options. Use the code GET30 for an additional 30% off of the list price.
Onto the jeans: Dark blue stretch denim Levi’s for under $30. There’s not much more you can ask for here!
The Sneakers: Puma Future Trinomic Swift Chain Sneaker, $34.94 (was $55)
The Nike Flyknits are ubiquitous at this point. This is something a little different while still accomplishing the same goals. The Puma Future Trinomic Swift Chain… wtf, I don’t know where the name of the sneaker ends and where the colorway begins. Just jokes. “Puma Future Trinomic Swift” is the sneaker. “Chain” is the pattern. “Blue/Black” is the color. Boom. Lightweight and breathable is what this shoe is all about.
