Founded in the early 1980s by free-spirited Yosemite climber Mike Graham, Gramicci has always been about freedom. The legendary G-pants were the first legwear to feature innovations that are now staple features of technical outdoor clothing, such as a gusseted crotch and an integrated belt. These elements gave unsurpassed freedom of movement. Climbers loved them, but so did California’s bikers, skaters and surfers. Inevitably, Gramicci gear soon made the leap into streetwear. So today, the G-pants still work well for summer cragging, but they’re equally at home in the metropolis too. Latest updates include a little extra room around the hips, a zip fly opening in the front, and twin back pockets. Crafted from cotton twill, they’re breathable, durable and stylish – whether you’re hanging out halfway up a big wall or just sipping a flat white at your local coffee shop.
