It’s the stereotypical hacker outfit. 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 — worth a look this week.
Waking up late and you don’t have time to figure out what you’re going to wear underneath your hoodie? Don’t worry because you can just throw this on! This style of hoodie is unique in that it’s light enough, as well as comfortable enough, to wear without any layering. It’s a lightweight cotton blend, with a nice-looking henley neckline, and a trim fit to make sure you look good. This is a part of the Nordstrom summer sale, so pull the trigger before 9/13 so that you don’t miss the sale.
The Sneakers: New Balance Men’s Minimus Cross-Training and Weightlifting Shoe, $78.64 (originally $99.95)
The Newbalance Minimus is back to its all-time low price thanks to 15% off (applied at checkout) from Amazon. It’s as close to a barefoot-feel that you can get in a full shoe, and its upper is made for breathability. The Minimus is also available in blue, black, grey, and white with accents if you’re not trying to blind people with your sweet new orange shoes!
This bag didn’t quite make it onto our Best Laptop Backpacks for Commuters list, but it’s a strong contender due to its looks and its focus on those of us hauling laptops around all day.
The deep, geometric print-lined interior includes two side pockets for smaller items and a fleece-lined laptop sleeve. For grab-and-go convenience, the exterior pocket stores essential items within reach. Wide, moisture-wicking padded shoulder straps with clippable webbing trim and padded mesh pods in the back absorb body moisture and comfortably carry the load.
