Additional Info

"When I stop making the Yojimbo, I'm going to close the business down. It's such an iconic piece." - Christian Griffith, climber/designer

One of Verve's earliest designs, designer Christian Griffith considers the Yojimbo the pinnacle of performance pant. The knicker or length is one of the perfect athletic lengths and the stripe along the side provides a subtle fullness. Yojimbo has this dynamic, organic silhouette and the stripe actually is what allows that to happen. You'll find it's a bit more fitted in the waist and seat, perfect for smoothly slipping on a harness or chalk bag, and has a slight taper around the calf for better visibility of the feet. Around the leg and thigh, however, there's a ripe fullness to the pant which allows for really great air circulation. The color panel simply makes it more fun!

Read about Verve and founder Christian Griffith on our Blog - Part 1 and Part 2

"Outside my close circle of friends there was almost no way of knowing at a glance who shared not only my love of climbing, but also my way of being. This was the feeling that gave rise to the idea for Verve, the clothing company I started in 1988. Since then, I have tried very hard to stick to a few key values that have not only preserved the physical quality of Verve clothing, but hopefully as well, their fundamental role in helping the people that wear them find their own place in the world.", Christian Griffith

The Verve clothing company is not only committed to producing exceptional products, but to supporting grassroots, sustainable business practices. While outsourcing is commonplace in the apparel industry, Verve is keeping it local. They have a group of professional seamstresses who work from home, affectionately called the granny sewing force. Many of these seamstresses left their own countries because of war or its aftermath and made their way to the US years ago. Verve founder Christian Griffith says, "With changes in scale, priorities, and the economy, most of that manufacturing was moved overseas, leaving these highly skilled, dedicated women with little or no means to make a living." Flip over the care label to see the initials of the nice granny who poured her passion into your next pair of Leda pants.
