If Paulie Walnuts was less into wacking people in the woods are more into bouldering at his local climbing centre, we reckon he’d wear these Shell Packable Shorts from the sultans of scrambling at Gramicci. They’ve got the classic Gramicci details, like the elasticated waist and that crotch gusset for extra-flexibility, and they’re made from some dead swish nylon stuff which has a sheen the photos really can’t do justice. And yep, they can be packed into that back pocket at a moment’s notice – perfect for when you’re out skinny-dipping.
As these are from Gramicci’s Japanese wing, these are a bit smaller than ‘western legwear’. Might be worth sizing up on these.
