Strike a balance between casual and cool with polo shirts made for everything from campus days to date nights. American Eagle polo shirts level up your look with a classic heritage style, and come in tons of fabric and color options so you have a look that’s all you, all the time.

Check out our polo shirt guide below to find the right fit for you this year!

Pique Polo Shirts

Feel good in pique polo shirts made from super-soft cotton for a lightweight, breathable feel. They’ve got the iconic two-button placket you know and love from your other polos, and come in standard or slim fits for however you want to mix it up this school year. 

Level up your look for date night by pairing a blue or black polo shirt with crisp blue jeans or cargo shorts, or choose a fresh polo in your team colors for a classic style with legendary comfort.

Jersey Polo Shirts

Keep your cool in jersey polo shirts made from lightweight, flexible knit jersey. The soft fabric has added stretch for an extra hit of comfort, and comes in tons of different colors for a casual, laid-back vibe every day of the week. 

Jersey polo shirts have your back when you need to transition from class to work and back again during your jam-packed day. Just swap out your accessories (baseball hat for errands, cross-body bag for class) and you’re ready for a change of scenery.

Active Polo Shirts

After-school activities are easier than ever with AE 24/7 Training polo shirts made for making moves. AE 24/7 polos use a lightweight cotton blend and sweat-wicking technology to keep you feeling fresh when you’re on the go, and added 4-way stretch means you’re ready to hit the driving range, clock in at your internship, or even dress up your look for game day. No sweat. 

Made with breathable fabrics, our active polos keep you cool and comfortable no matter what the day brings. Wear them with joggers or jogger shorts for a relaxed athletic vibe on your way to practice, or switch up your look with khaki pants and cargos when you need to dress to impress at work.

Sweater Polo Shirts

The combo you didn’t know you needed, sweater polos are that just-right mix of a super-soft sweater and short-sleeve polo shirt. Complete with a button-up front, collared neck, and seriously soft knit fabric, polo sweaters are an easy warm-weather staple you can dress up or down. 

Wear ’em with carpenter pants for a utility-inspired vibe, or unbuttoned over a graphic tee and with jeans for a laid-back school outfit.
