It was once a purveyor of outdoor gear, but American Eagle Outfitters now feathers its nest with jeans and polos. The mall-based retailer sells denim and other casual apparel and accessories (top categories include jeans, t-shirts, bras, and panties) aimed at young men and women ages 15-25. The chain operates more than 1,000 stores in all 50 US states, Puerto Rico, Canada, Hong Kong, China, and now Mexico and the UK. It also has stores in about a dozen other countries operated under license. Direct sales come from the company's websites. Virtually all of the company's products bear its private-label brand names American Eagle Outfitters and aerie.
