Starting in 1977 and being now one of the most popular clothing brands, American Eagle began when Jerry and Mark Silverman opened their shop in Twelve Oaks Mall, located in Michigan. Since then, they have revolutionized denim fitting systems, their annual sales passing 1 billion, and given a ton of opportunities for models to begin their fashion modeling careers as models for American Eagle.
With it’s target audience being 15-25, AEO not only is a success story on it’s own, but has over 500 stores in and outside the United States. Owning the company “aerie”, “77kids”, and “AEO FACTORY”, American Eagle has caught the attention of the stylish and the fantastic. With original work in their clothes, they began partnerships with leading fashion & retail recruiting agency “JBCStyle” and began working on making AEO the next big thing. Soon, everyone started wearing American Eagle clothing, and the income shot through the roof!
And it doesn’t end there, ladies and gentlemen! As time went on, more stores were made worldwide, now with a total of 911 AEO’s and 158 “aerie”s.

Truly, AEO has done a great job at making you and everyone else look great, feel great, and be great. Don’t take our word for it: Take the people working there!
