Acapulco Gold is a clothing brand[1] founded in New York City in 2006.

Co-owners Augie Galan and Geoff Heath met while working at Supreme (clothing) in 1998. After nearly a decade there, they decided to branch off and start their own line of clothing. The brand began with T-shirts and hats at first,[2] then as popularity grew extended their line to include high quality cut and sew garments.

Acapulco Gold sells its clothing at boutiques in 19 countries[3] and has a global reach through its website.

Acapulco Gold has collaborated with photographer Janette Beckman to produce an ongoing line of T-shirts and hats based on her photographs.[4]

In 2010, Acapulco Gold teamed with Mark McNairy to create original footwear.[5]

Acapulco Gold also collaborated with Vans in 2010 to put their twist on the Moda Hi sneaker.[6]
