Men's Cargo Shorts
You can’t go wrong with the classics, and at AE that definitely means men’s cargo shorts. These aren’t your dad’s cargo shorts, either – our cargo shorts are the perfect blend of put-together and casual, in a classic fit you can wear with pretty much everything in your closet. The on-trend cargo short is as versatile as it is classic, making it an instant hit for your spring and summer plans. Plus, we make cargo shorts in a variety of lengths, so you always get the fit you’re looking for, no matter what your style is.

Classic cargo shorts from AE come in a couple inseam lengths so you can have the fit that's right for you. Ranging from 5" shorts to longer 12" shorts, we've got you covered with our shortest and longest inseams. Plus, our men's shorts come in a huge variety of colors and washes, ranging from classic khaki to navy blue and olive green, to bolder designs like camo. Cargo pockets are the biggest achievement of these shorts, so carry your essentials in front, back, and side pockets.

The right pair of shorts is seriously all you need to transition from pants weather to shorts weather. Choose from the freshest washes and colors to step up your shorts game or give your denim shorts a rest for a while. Wear your cargo shorts with anything for a fresh look that’s easy to pull off. Go for a classic look by pairing khaki colored cargo shorts with a button up for a polished style that’s all you through and through, or complete try a camo carg short with a hoodie or sweatshirt and a pair of sneakers for an easy vibe.

Want the look of your favorite cargo short without the pockets? We got you covered with American Eagle khaki shorts. Or go for a more laid-back short style during your downtime with the AE jogger shorts and sweat shorts, designed for an athletic style and total comfort. Whatever the short, wear it your way with men's shirts and tops that complete the look. And when shorts season is over, switch up your look with cargo pants, men's jeans, pants, or khakis for a look that’s all you, all the time.
