The Parachute Pants Store first opened in 1997 with a small selection of pants purchased from Norman's in Michigan. Norman's was a bulk discount clothing store with five locations. They were selling Parachute Pants as ski pants, next to Carhartt winter clothing. Needless to say, they didn't sell well.
Original Parachute Pants were only manufactured with a waist size of up to 34 inches, as tight fitting nylon has no give. As waist sizes get bigger, that ability to get the right fit was very difficult. We then started looking for other clothing manufacturers that either had dead stock, or would sell us replica clothing.
The store built up a large collection of Parachute Pants, and then in 2014 we added other nylon clothing. The store rarely finds the same product twice, so many items sell out and are not replaced.
