From the pioneers of free-spirited rock-climbing in the 1970s, known as the Stonemasters, Gramicci was born. Amongst them was Californian Mike Graham, the original founder of the brand that we know and love today. Whilst developing a new style of climbing with his fellow enthusiasts in Yosemite National park, it became apparent that they needed new attire that would allow for ease of movement, freedom and flexibility. With no luck finding what he required already in the market, Graham took it upon himself to design his own.
It wasn’t until 1982 that Gramicci was established, the moniker of his name Graham. With the goal to create something completely original with movement firmly in mind, the legendary G Shorts came into fruition, the first true climbing shorts. Hard wearing, flexible and comfortable, these shorts birthed the future for the brand. Its offspring, the G Pants, soon followed and the pair swiftly became must-haves among the climbing community.
As Gramicci moved into the 1990s’ the already established brand expanded from purely functionality to fashion and performance that embodied comfort, function and technology. Creatively merging their ethos with stylish yet functional designs, that saw the brand take its place in the DNA of streetwear.
Whilst changing ownership in the 2000s until now, Gramicci has managed to climb its way to the top of our must-have brands with the help of their innovative eccentric spirit and sense of adventure. Creating products that are the perfect amalgamation of engineered comfort and function, designed to offer distinctive style to both high performance outdoor sports enthusiasts and urban wanderers alike.
