Do American Eagle Jeans Have a Lifetime Warranty?

Very few items today come with a lifetime warranty, so it may seem incredible that a pair of jeans comes with one.

Yet, this is the case for American Eagle Jeans because they do indeed come with a warranty against manufacturers’ defects, but not against normal wear and tear.

The American Eagle Brand

Established in 1977, American Eagle or American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. is the brainchild of two brothers, Jerry and Mark Silverman.

This brand is a subsidiary of a company owned and managed by Silverman’s Menswear. The company began with a single store located smack in the Midwest, in Novi, Michigan.

When Silverman’s Menswear ran into difficulty, the brothers sold half of the company to the Schottenstein store owners. It changed names and became known as Retail Ventures, Inc. 

In 1989, the remaining shares of American Eagle were sold by the Silvermans. The Shottensteins revamped the brand in 1992 and in 1993, the American Eagle brand was incorporated. The American Eagle Brand is also the parent company of Aerie.

The company was founded with the idea of selling casual clothing and sportswear with numerous retail stores situated in malls and an active mail-order retail business.

While in recent years net revenue of the company has been in the billions, this is due to their focus on top-quality denim with an impressive array of expansion into a comprehensive lifestyle clothing brand.

The company’s target retail market is young people between the ages of 15 and 25, although folks of all ages buy their clothing.

Today the company boasts corporate offices located around the globe.

Are American Eagle Jeans More Expensive?

Thanks to a loyal customer base, smart branding methods, and trendsetting, American Eagle has survived the pandemic and the economic ups and downs that spelled the end of many retail brands.

When factoring in price, quality, and comfort, American Eagle Jeans are a great product. They may initially be a bit more expensive than some competitors’ brands, but they are comfortable to wear and will not self-destruct after a little wear.

Then there’s that lifetime warranty against defects. This iconic American clothing brand merits consideration, and the company’s jeans are where it all began.

If you add in environmentally friendly manufacturing practices, and social activism for inclusivity, wearing a pair of jeans doesn’t get much better.
