At AE, we’ve spent over 40 years perfecting the art of men’s jeans to figure out what looks good and feels even better. Over time, some jean trends have come and gone, but one we’re always excited about is light wash jeans. Whether they’re stone washed, acid washed, ripped or destroyed, you can feel confident in this classic. We make light wash jeans for men in all kinds of fits, fabrics and styles so you always have the look you’re searching for. Add a throwback style to your day with faded, acid wash jeans or breathe some new life into your jean shorts by choosing a light wash design with frayed hems and light destruction. Wear it with all your favorite men’s shirts to create easy outfits when you’re on the go.
AE light wash jeans are made in all of your favorite denim fabrics. Our non-stretch denim is rigid and durable, and breaks in over time so your jeans will be more “you” the more you wear them. But if you’re looking for light blue jeans that already feel broken in and are designed to stretch and flex to keep up with your day, Flex and Ne(X)t Level Flex jeans use premium stretch technology to create a long-lasting consistent fit. Flex fabric moves with you for comfort that feels better than the rest, and Ne(X)t Level Flex fabric uses a high stretch level to keep its shape from morning to night. This means you can focus on the task at hand, whether you're getting physical on the job site, running errands or just hanging out.
With all kinds of design and fit options, the style possibilities for our light wash jeans are endless. Pair them with men’s tops like a button down shirt for a clean and crisp look or throw on a hoodie for ultimate day-to-night comfort. Destroyed details add even more character to your denim - there's nothing quite like a pair of ripped light wash jeans to step up your look. Ripped knees and frayed hems are the result of our careful deconstruction process that allows you to get straight to that broken-in look you know and love. Light wash jeans can create a laid-back, relaxed style you’ve been looking for, and since it comes in so many jeans fits like the skinny jean, slim straight jean, tapered jean & more, you’ll always have the look and style you want.
