Flat Front Shorts
When it comes to short season, you can’t go wrong with the classics. At American Eagle Outfitters, our men’s flat front shorts are always a good choice. These aren’t your dad’s khaki shorts – AE flat front shorts for him come in a slim fit for a clean, tailored look, or classic fit for a more relaxed vibe. Plus, we offer them in a variety of lengths so you always get the shorts you’re looking for, no matter what your style.
The Longer Length Flat Front Short is our longest inseam and hits below your knee. Whether you’re on the taller side or just like the look of a longer short, we’ve got you covered. The 7” flat front short is our shortest inseam and is perfect for the guy who wants a prep-inspired look. Whatever length you choose, our guys shorts come in a huge variety of colors and washes, from classic khaki, navy blue, and olive green, to bolder hues like pink, baby blue, and mustard yellow. If you really want to mix it up, go for camo or try on some of our freshest prints.
The right pair of flat front shorts is really all you need to step your style up. From there, you can wear them with anything. We love the classic look of khaki shorts with a crisp button down shirt or iconic polo, and there are endless ways to make the look your own by adding some flare in the form of a great hat or sneaker or layering your button down with a bold graphic t-shirt underneath.
Another thing you’ll love about the flat front shorts at AE? Every pair is designed in durable cotton twill and upgraded with our new Ne(x)t Level Flex technology to make sure the shorts move with you and don’t lose their shape. Now don’t get it twisted, Flex technology does NOT mean these are stretchy shorts. They still have the look and feel of rugged khaki twill, they just perform a little better… bending and stretching with you. Because nothing is worse than having fabric fight against every move you make. Step into a pair of American Eagle men’s flat front shorts and see for yourself just how soft, comfortable, and ready for anything they truly are.
