You have some time off coming up, and instead of traveling somewhere you want to stay home and find new ways to do things that are different from what you’re used to. Go on an out of the blue drive or just hang out at home without making concrete plans. You can stay at a hotel in your town and be a tourist in your own city. The world is a big place, and there are tons of places that you can explore right where you currently live. Play tourist for a few days by visiting museums, trying new restaurants, take a ghost tour, explore parks and historic sites you’ve never seen. The fun in that is that you can do what you want when you want since you’re on vacay. Also, wear whatever you want like your trusty uniform hoodies/jeans/sneakers. Check out what cool pieces we found for your staycation.

Can’t decide on what to wear? Black or gray? How about hoodie with both colors? This contrasting colorblock hoodie is perfect for those days where you can make up your mind. The hoodie is full zip, and the ribbed cuff and hem help to seal out the cold. It’s usually around $70 on most sites, but we found one on sale. Awesome, right?

Hoodies/Jeans/Sneakers: Off-Duty Style

October 2, 2017 | by Scott

Along with your keys and wallet, a quick outfit (like your uniform hoodie/jeans/sneakers) is a must-have for running around all over town during the weekend to go brunching or for errands. Especially since this outfit is extremely versatile and can be worn for all occasions. Whether you wear it for a weekend brunch or a date, check out our favorite finds to rock hoodie/jeans/sneakers wherever you’re headed next.

The Hoodie: Stone Zip Through Hoodie, $22.50 (was $45)

For off-duty dressing, a hoodie without drawstrings is the perfect leisurewear staple. It’s comfortable, but you won’t look sloppy or like a sulky teen. When the weather gets colder, you can dress up the hoodie under a topcoat.

Wear a pair of jeans in a different color to look stylish and sleek. Who said you had to look ragged while running errands over the weekend?

Hoodies/Jeans/Sneakers: Video Game Tournament

September 18, 2017 | by Scott

If you’re into games like Dota 2 or Overwatch, then you know that there’s like a video game tournament happening almost every month. Maybe you can’t attend the actual tournament in person, but it’s still fun to go with your friends, and have a few beers, to a bar sponsoring the event. What are you going to wear? Your favorite look: hoodies/jeans/sneakers. Here are our favorite pieces to attend an eSports competition.

The Hoodie: Classic Full-Zip Fleece Hoodie, $32.97 (was $36.94)

End of summer sales are still happening, and this hoodie is part of the fun. Made from cotton and polyester, the hoodie is light and comfortable and even better perfect for this in-between weather going on at the moment. While you’re checking it out, keep an eye out for Old Navy‘s 50% off sale storewide.

The Jeans: 510 Skinny Fit Jeans, $39.75 (was $79.50)

Pair your hoodie with a unique pair of skinny jeans like this brightened by a heavy acid wash pair from Nordstrom. The jeans are true to size and made with cotton. Not quite white jeans, so you’ll not be breaking the “no white after Labor Day” rule.

The Sneakers: Nike Men’s Downshifter 7 Running Shoes, $44.99 (was $59.99)

These are a really good pair of running shoes, but they are also sleek enough to wear outside of the gym. The lightweight mesh uppers help your feet remain cool while the full-length rubber outsoles ensure secure footing. The only place I’ve seen these sneakers on sale is at Academy Sports, so get them there!

Hoodies/Jeans/Sneakers: Casual Office Style

August 21, 2017 | by Scott

When it comes to men’s fashion, you can’t go wrong with the tried-and-tested hoodie/jeans/sneakers combination. If you’re working in a casual workplace, then this is your go-to outfit. It’s not too formal and not as casual as, say, jogging bottoms and a t-shirt. If you’re looking for a good casual outfit for work, I’d recommend adding these pieces to your work wardrobe.

The Hoodie: Superdry High Neck Zip Hoodie, Oxblood, $94.50

This Superdry’s double zip hoodie is inspired by Mountaineering gear and features two front zip pockets and a soft, lined hood. The hoodie comes in several colors, but this oxblood version is the perfect color for the upcoming colder weather. Style it with black or gray jeans, a neutral color tee, and your favorite canvas sneakers.

The Jeans: Sid Skinny Stretch Jeans, Grey, $70

Grey jeans are awesome for the office! They are more versatile than regular jeans–you can dress them up or down–and mix and match with a variety of pieces already available in your closet. The skinny jeans pictured above pair well with hoodies, sweaters, polos, and plain white tees for work or after-hours adventures. Also, they are available in multiple colors!

The Sneakers: Nike Roshe One, was $79, now $49 at Dick’s Sporting Goods

The Nike Roshe One comes with embroidered eyelets, breathable mesh, and soft sock liners. With sneakers like these, victory will be yours. Team up these black sneakers with a hoodie (like the one on this post) and skinny jeans for a casual outing or for the office.

Hoodies/Jeans/Sneakers: April 25, 2016

April 25, 2016 | by Josh

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: Old Navy Linen-Blend Popover Hoodie, $17.46 (was $24)

Use code THANKYOU for 30% off your purchase at Old Navy sitewide, no exclusions.

This lightweight linen blend hoodie will work great on cool summer days, as well as for layering. This is about as basic as it gets, and that’s what I love about it. The only note to make is that this is a relaxed fit hoodie, so if you’re a slim guy you’ll have to be careful not to drown in it.

Old Navy Linen-Blend Popover Hoodie

The Jeans: Levi’s Red Tab 501 Straight Leg Jeans (Dimensional Rigid Blue), $46 (was $78)

We usually go for slim jeans here at Hacker Casual, but straight leg jeans are still a ‘thing’. These Levi’s are from Nordstroms, so along with the great price you get free shipping and free returns. These are 5-pocked button-fly jeans exactly what you’d expect in a 501.

Levi's Red Tab 501 Straight Leg Jeans Dimensional Rigid Blue

The Sneakers: Onitsuka Tiger Alliance Sneakers, $59 (was $100)

Use code SCORE at checkout for 40% of all clearance items at JCrew.

Available in lots of sizes in Blue, but the arguably more handsome White sneak has limited sizing. The Alliance has perforated suede uppers and a lightweight throwback running shoe.  I think it’s crazy how expensive they normally try to sell these for at over $100 for a sneaker. $60 is the cost of an entry-level non-discounted New Balance sneak, so this is much closer to a good price for these sneakers.
