Men's Bootcut Jeans & Bootleg Jeans
It’s a classic for a reason. AE men’s bootcut jeans are built on heritage style that just doesn’t quit. They're designed with a bootcut leg opening that draws the eye down to focus on, you guessed it, your boots. Despite the name, out boot leg jeans also look good with sneakers for a laid-back look. We make two versions – the original bootcut and the classic boot – so you can find the right jean fit for you. Original bootcut jeans are straight through the thigh and classic bootcut jeans are more loose through the thigh, but both feature the iconic bootcut leg opening you know and love.


This tried-and-true fit keeps things relaxed and makes it comfortable to move in. And since we have so many options for wash, fabric and details, you’ll never run out of choices to find your next favorite. Choose from fabrics like rigid, non-flex denim to super comfy AirFlex+ to find the one that’s right for you. Rigid cotton denim doesn’t have any stretch, and is durable and finished by hand for a one-of-a-kind look. Flex is right in the middle with a high stretch level that feels good when you’re on the move, and AirFlex+ kicks things up a notch to deliver a men's stretch jean you’ll want to come back to. AirFlex+ is beyond anything you’ve ever felt – they keep flexibility at a maximum and always keep their shape so your jeans look as good as they feel.

Choose a light wash bootleg jean for a classic blue jean style, or opt for darker washes you can dress up easily when you need to. This iconic fit looks good with pretty much any men’s shirt you can think of – but we love it with long sleeve t-shirts, graphic tees, hoodies, and button-up shirts made in soft flannel or crisp poplin. Keep things casual and laid-back by wearing it with a basic t-shirt, or go a little more formal with a printed button down shirt. Dress it up or dress it down, either way, this jean looks good with everything. Bootcut pants are also another good option, since they serve up a classic khaki pant or chinos look with the same fit.

If you’re into classics, OGs like the bootleg jean might be the right pick for you. Or you might like other men’s jeans fits like the relaxed straight jean, Athletic fit jean or original straight jean. Find men's baggy jeans, wide leg jeans, or skinny jeans to change up your look how you want. Browse the full collection to find all the new must-have jean fits and all the classics in every color wash and design imaginable only available at American Eagle. And since AE jeans are made for you, they always come in an inclusive size range so you can find the right fit every time.
