Sometimes you just can’t go wrong with the classics. At American Eagle Outfitters, our men’s cargo shorts are always a good choice for your next spring event or summer get-together. These aren’t your dad’s cargo shorts, either – AE 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 cargo short is as versatile as it is classic, making it an instant hit for your spring and summer plans. Plus, we offer 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 are designed with a 10” inseam for a fit that hits right at the knee. If you’re the kind of guy who wants more from your shorts, though, the longer length cargo 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. Whatever length you choose, our guy’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 style pockets are obviously the biggest achievement of these men’s shorts, so carry your essentials in hip, back and side pockets. Made with varying levels of Flex, these shorts move with you for the best casual shorts fit yet.

The right pair of cargo 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 an AE polo shirt or rugby shirt for an athletic style that’s all you through and through. Or complete the look with a button down shirt and a pair of sneakers for a polished vibe when you need to dress up your shorts game.

Want the color of your favorite cargo short without the pockets? We got you covered with our line of khaki shorts. Made in classic, slim and long designs, these shorts change up your look and give you options. Or go for a more laid-back short style during your downtime with the AE jogger shorts, designed for an athletic style and premium comfort. Whatever the short, wear it your way with an AE men’s top to complete the look. Put the finishing touches on your look with accesories like men's baseball hats, watches & more only at American Eagle.
