Pacific Sunwear

PacSun (originally Pacific Sunwear) is a chain of apparel stores selling clothes fitting the surf and skating lifestyle. Established in 1980 by Tom Moore, the first store was in the surf-side town of Newport Beach, California.

The company has a knack for finding the clothes that young adults want to wear. (They did so by hanging out at the beach and skatepark to find out what people were wearing). They quickly expanded to over 800 stores in malls throughout the US. They've pared back a bit with the recession and have over 600 stores in 50 states.

PacSun headquarters are in Anaheim, California. They traded on the NASDAQ with the symbol PSUN. The company filed for bankruptcy protection in April 2016 and was acquired by Golden Gate Capital.
