Back-to-School Basics for Guys

We get it: it’s back-to-school season, and there’s a lot on your mind – including what to wear! Make a great first impression with easy tees, versatile button-ups, classic jackets, and more. Mix ‘n’ match these AE faves to ace your first-day ’fit! 

The Everyday Button-Up Shirt

The name says it all. The Everyday Shirt is the casual button-up you’ll be reaching for day after day. With a plaid pattern that always looks good, it’s the lightweight finishing touch your outfit needs. 

The Hooded Flannel

Say hello to your go-to for cooler temps. The best-of-both-worlds Hooded Flannel combines a classic flannel shirt with the cozy comfort of your favorite hoodie. The drawstring hood is removable for extra versatility – wear it your way! 

The Tees

The foundation of every back-to-school outfit? A Super Soft t-shirt. Stock up on solid or patterned tees that match multiple outfits to get the most out of your t-shirt drawer. Go for a crew neck tee if you want a casual staple, or kick it up a notch with a henley tee.

The Jeans

Did you really think we wouldn’t give AE men’s jeans a shoutout? This fall, treat yourself to jeans that are built to keep up with you. AirFlex+ jeans have an authentic denim look with flexibility you’ve gotta feel to believe.

Stay on-trend with the Slim fit, or try Athletic fit styles for a tailored look with extra room in the thigh.

The Lived-In Cargo Pants

If you’re looking to swap out jeans, Lived-In Cargos are a no-brainer. These comfy, throwback pants look just as good with a t-shirt as they do with a button-up. With tons of fits and colors to choose from, you’ve got plenty of options (and plenty of pockets)! 

The Denim Jacket

The classics never go out of style, and it doesn’t get more classic than a denim jacket. A denim jacket is the ultimate outer layer that you can dress up or down: wear it with a graphic t-shirt, a henley, or even an Oxford button-up shirt.

Tip: go for a hooded denim jacket for a more casual vibe that’s extra cozy!
