Not sure which shorts to add to your closet first? Scroll through our shorts guide below for inspiration!
Denim Shorts: Your Everyday Staple
When temps are on the rise, there’s nothing better than a pair of cutoffs that go with everything from your fave graphic tee to that hoodie you essentially live in. AE’s jean shorts are slim-fitting and hit at the knee, and are also available in an Athletic fit made for the guy who needs extra room in the thigh.
Choose from different washes, destruction levels, and fabrics, ranging from non-stretch to AirFlex that’s made with the look of authentic denim, but with flexibility and comfort you have to feel to believe.
Khaki Shorts: Classic and Crisp
Crisp lines and a laid-back fit make our men’s khaki shorts an obvious choice for when you wanna dress up (just a little). They’re dyed for softness and to create a one-of-a-kind color, and use stretch fabrics for the ultimate in comfort.
Choose from 6” to 12” inseam lengths, made to hit above or below the knee depending on your preference, and from classic colors like navy, black, and tan, or prints like island-inspired floral.
Cargo Shorts: Room For All Your Stuff
Get the clean look of khaki shorts with more room for your phone, wallet, keys, whatever in AE cargo shorts, made with a soft, broken-in feel and Ne(x)t Level Flex fabrics that move with you.
Our cargo shorts are available in two lengths, hitting at the knee or below for that “just right” fit, and come in colors like black, tan, and camo for a classic look.
Jogger Shorts: The Ultimate in Comfort
Comfort is key when it comes to your loungewear and activewear. Our jogger shorts feature a drawstring waistband and pull-on design for style that looks AND feels good, whether you’re running, biking, or just chilling on the sofa.
Jogger shorts come in 8” or 10” inseams, as well as fabrics like lightweight fleece and nylon. A bunch even have zip or bonded tape pockets so you can feel secure your stuff will stay put when you’re on the go.
Swim Shorts: Beach-to-Street Style
Dive right into summer with AE swim shorts, including board shorts and swim trunks in quick-drying fabrics.
Try swim trunks in 6” and 8” inseams that hit above the knee, or board shorts with a longer 10” inseam for more coverage. Pair them with Swundies boxer briefs, which are quick-drying, chlorine and salt-water-safe underwear meant to be worn UNDER your board shorts for extra comfort and security where you need it most.
