Hoodies/Jeans/Sneakers: September 21, 2015

September 21, 2015 | by Josh

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.


The Hoodie: GAP Urban Active contrast mixed-media hoodie, $23.99 (originally $59.95)

You get 40% off with the coupon code “SMILE through midnight on 9/21/15, at which point it will revert to its sale price of $39.99. How is an all-grey 100% cotton hoodie “mixed-media?” The main panel of the hoodie is terry cloth with the hood being a much lighter-weight fabric. This allows the hoodie to be a warm option during the fall, without the hood being a bulky lump behind your neck whenever you try and lean back in your seat. It’s a design decision I fully support!

The Jeans: Naked & Famous Skinny Guy Stretch Cord in Burgandy, $45 (originally $148)

If you read the Style Girlfriend Fall Style Guide that we reviewed last week, you would know that they suggested a pair of burgandy pants for the fall. Their reasoning is that bright colored pants are all the rage but you should be aiming for a color that would appear on a thanksgiving table for this season instead of your go-to pastel colored bonobos (they’re not pink, they’re light-red!). Well, these Skinny Guy corduroy jeans are just the ticket. Their Skinny Guy fit is a slim, straight fit comparable to the Levi’s 513. N&F goes by your waist measurement, purposefully running long so that your pant stacks up on your shoe. That’s the look, don’t worry about it! It also helps that they’re stretchy, so no matter how heavy your lunch is you won’t feel uncomfortable at the office in the afternoon.

The Sneakers: PUMA ST Runner Nylon Men’s Sneakers, $36.00 (originally $60.00)

Puma is running a friends and family sale where all full priced shoes are 40% off with free shipping if you use the code “FRIENDSFAMILY .” Whether you love these shoes or not, check out their sale because it’s a biggie. According to PUMA’s marketing gurus:

The ST Runner is one of our modern icons. It has all the street cred of a classic ’90s running shoe – chunky, cushioned midsole, anyone? – but sacrifices nothing in terms of good looks and fresh style for everyday wearing. This pair sports a nylon upper with soft suede overlays. Sleek, comfortable, and handsome as they come.
