Tight fitting, if not slightly long, nylon pants. Often with excess of 8 pockets/zippers, parachute pants were rampant in the Eighties. They were brought back to the market sometime in the mid-Nineties as 'Nylon Jeans'. Parachute pants are often mistaken for Baggy or poofy 'MC Hammer-esque' pants, which in actuality are known as ASTRO-pants.
Skariachi saxophonist/singer Kole 'Flash' Maravilla is a large supporter of the Parachute pants.
