Parachute pants are a style of trousers (pants) characterised by the use of ripstop nylon and / or extremely baggy cuts. In the original loose-fitting, extraneously zippered style of the early 80s 'parachute' refers to the pants' synthetic nylon material. In the later 80s 'parachute' may refer to the extreme baggyness of the pant. They are typically worn as men's wear and are often brightly colored. Parachute pants gained media attention in US culture in the 1980s as part of an increased cultural awareness of break dancing.
If you grew up in the 80s, you either had a Members Only jacket or you were a complete and total fashion outcast. Members Only jackets were the staple of 80s fashion outerwear and everyone who was anyone owned one.
