American Eagle (AE, A&E, AEO) is a popular teen clothing store. Its competitors are Abercrombie and Fitch, Hollister Co., and Aeropostale. Out of these stores, American Eagle is the 2nd most affordable clothing with Aeropostale ranking as the cheapest.

Many people think that only rich preps and posers shop there to fit in at school, but a lot of people(who definitely are not rich) shop there because they actually like the clothes. AE provides great clothes at an affordable price (that is, when it is on the clearance section). Anyone besides 'preps' can shop here also!

The trick to shopping at A&E without paying such an expensive price is to shop at the clearance section at the store or online. It is possible to get 10 items for 100 bucks, which really is not bad.

Con: Since a lot of people shop here, it's hard to be unique and some styles are similar to Hollister, AF and Aero..
Nemo: Hey, I like your shirt! Where'd you get it from?
Dory: I got it from american eagle for 7 bucks!
Nemo: Nice! It looks better than my 8 dollar shirt that says 'old navy' all over it! Maybe I'll shop there next time!

The best freaking store in the whole world. Some people don't like it. Some think its the awesomest store ever. Just depends on who you are. And what day it is. I could go into American Eagle one day and then the next day go into Hot Topic. Just depends on who you are.

A store with slightly expensive, highly fashionable clothing. By some, seen as a lower priced version of Abercrombie . Clothing is,ironically, often made outside of the United States. Probably uses child labour.

day 1- a girl comes to school with a american eagle polo and a skirt to go with it and acts all preppy. people complements her outfit

day 2- the same girl comes to school the next day with a volcome hoodie and ripped jeans. some people just stare at her and some people compliment her hoodie

day 3- the same girl comes to school with a south pole shirt and some g-unit shoes. nobody compliments her and just stares at her

a store that has the best clothes and accessories.
most people bitch about how its for posers and rich preps but they are only jealous because they would never look good in the clothes or they cant afford them because they are stubborn losers who dont shop there because they want to try and act "different" and cool in front of their equally loser friends eventhough all of them are the same so they arent actually being "different" now are they? i think not
group of goth kids: "check out that loser in the american eagle shirt, she is so not different like us"
girl: "too bad everyone of you is wearing all black...not very different is you ask me so quit your bitching"
