Bad news, Bros! A little part of your teenage self just died. Pacific Sunwear of California Inc. a.k.a. PacSun is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Apparently things have been rough since Puka Shell necklaces went out of style and every damn person on the Internet started selling quirky graphic novelty tees. According to Bloomberg, the company is in dire straights: PacSun has recorded losses for the past eight years. The company’s publicly-traded shares to nosedive 90 percent in the last 12 months. With shares dipping to six cents, the company is being pulled out of the markets and going private under a restructuring agreement.
