A leisure suit is a casual suit consisting of a shirt-like jacket and matching trousers associated with American-influenced fashion and fads of the 1970s. Leisure suits originated on the west coast of the US in the late 1930s as summer casual-wear for the wealthy derived from the heavy tweed Norfolk jacket or khaki safari jacket worn by English sportsmen. Made from lightweight fabric and known as "Hollywood suits" these were worn until the 1950s in the Southwest where, together with suits derived from the Ike jacket, they became popular formal-wear and featured contrasting yokes and cuffs. Suits of this pattern, embellished with embroidery and rhinestones, were made by Nudie Cohn for 1950s Country and Western musicians, including Tex Williams and the young Elvis. Suits as casual wear became popular among members of Britain's mod subculture in the 1960s, but only achieved widespread popularity in the United States when—with the creation and popularization of synthetic materials—unprecedented inexpensive prices met with a culture that had come to hate formality.
They are associated with that era's disco culture. Leisure suits gained popularity by offering a fashionable, inexpensive suit which could conceivably be used in formal business, yet was casual enough to be worn out of the workplace setting; the leisure suit height of popularity was around the mid to late 1970s, but fell from fashion in the early 1980s. Today it is considered emblematic of 1970s American kitsch; the leisure suit became associated in popular culture with bars and conversely, with clueless dressing—the adventure game Leisure Suit Larry being an example. Leisure suits are still being offered and worn today, although not in the form of bellbottoms and pastel colors which came to be most associated with the term. Fashion labels such as Dior Homme and Dolce & Gabbana include casual suits among their collections, which are more reminiscent of suits in the style of British mod than American disco. Progress since the 1970s, in technology of synthetic fabrics such as polyester, has resulted in the creation of new textures.

A Racing Suit or Racing Overalls referred to as a Fire Suit due to its fire retardant properties, is the clothing worn in various forms of auto racing by racing drivers, crew members who work on the vehicles during races, track safety workers or marshals, in some series commentators at the event. In the early days of racing, most racing series had no mandated uniforms. Beginning in the 1950s and 1960s, specialized racing suits were designed to optimize driver temperature via heat transfer, to protect drivers from fire. By 1967, the majority of competitors in Formula One, NASCAR, the National Hot Rod Association, USAC Champ Car began wearing specialized fire suits. Most modern suits utilize Nomex, a material developed in the 1960s around the time fire suits emerged; the suits are known for prominently displaying driver sponsors. A racing suit is designed to cover the entire body of a driver, crew member, or marshall, including long sleeves and long pant legs. Typical driver suits are one-piece overalls, similar in appearance to a boilersuit.
Other fire suits are two piece, consisting of pants. The suits consist of a multiple layers of fire-retardant material; the suits have special epaulettes or yokes on the shoulder area that act as "handles" in order to lift a driver strapped to a racing seat out of a vehicle. This feature is mandated under Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile safety standards. Most suits utilize fabric made of Nomex, a synthetic material produced by DuPont which retains its fire-retardant properties over time and usage. Other suits consist of cotton treated with Proban, a chemical manufactured by Rhodia, or other substances; these suits can lose their fire-resistant properties over time after washing. Other suits are made of Kevlar, polybenzimidazole fiber, or carbon fibers, but are less used due to lack of comfort and color variety. Newer suits, such as those produced by Sparco, have inner liners treated with menthol to create a cooling sensation and fight odor. Additional accessories, including fire-resistant long underwear, gloves and balaclava-like face masks or "head socks" are worn.
When Nomex material is exposed to flame, instead of burning or melting it develops a carbon char. The char thickens the section of fiber exposed to the flame, preventing the spread of the fire to the rest of the suit and inhibiting the transfer of heat to the wearer of the garment. CarbonX is a different fabric for fire suits made of oxidized polyacrylonitrile, it is created by heating material until it oxidizes and chars, with the finished product able to last for two minutes exposed to fire. It is used for racing undergarments and gloves. Using multiple layers of the material, quilting of the fabric, create pockets of air which further insulate the wearer from heat; the suits are not fireproof, but rather fire retardant for a period of time, allowing an individual to escape an incident or be rescued with minimal injury. Bill Simpson, an innovator in racing safety, estimated in 1993 that a person has "20 to 30 seconds" before a fire suit begins to burn; the mandated minimum level of protection for uniforms in different racing series varies, as does the minimum standard for drivers, crew members, officials.
In the National Hot Rod Association drag racing series, for example, suits are designed to last 30 to 40 seconds before the wearer suffers second degree burns. This is a higher benchmark than that of most other series, due to the high risk of fire from nitromethane and alcohol-fueled cars. SFI Foundation, Inc. part of SEMA, dictates the suit fire protection standards for numerous sanctioning bodies in the United States, including NASCAR, IndyCar, the NHRA, the Sports Car Club of America, the United States Auto Club. The FIA determines the standards for most of its series such as Formula One and the FIA World Endurance Championship, excluding the standards of its drag racing competition which are determined by SFI. SFI and FIA standards are used by other organizations outside their jurisdiction, such as the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport. Both SFI and the FIA use the Thermal Protective Performance test to measure the effectiveness of fire-retardant clothing; this test, created by DuPont in the 1970s, measures the amount of time in seconds before the wearer of a garment suffers second degree burns.
For example, a garment that lasts three seconds before second degree burns occur receives a TPP value of 6. Under SFI standards, this would receive a rating of the lowest possible SFI rating. Suits in several other classes of racing are similar in appearance to fire suits, but are not designed to be fire resistant. Suits used for kart racing are not fire retardant, but rather are made to be abrasion resistant using leather, nylon or cordura. Suits used for motorcycle racing, called motorcycle leathers, are designed to be abrasion resistant, they consist with nylon and spandex fabrics prohibited. Fire-resistant undergarments are optional to provide fire protection; the Commission Internationale de Karting and FIA regulate specifications for karting suits. The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme regulates suits for numerous racing series such as MotoGP and the AMA Supercross Championship. Since the 1980s, racing suits have been customized to prominently feature the sponsors of drivers and teams, leading to designs similar to those of the race cars.
For fire suits, the material used to make the sponsor patches must be fire proof, adding additional weight to the suit. Many modern suits, use printed logos in order to redu
A space suit is a garment worn to keep a human alive in the harsh environment of outer space and temperature extremes. Space suits are worn inside spacecraft as a safety precaution in case of loss of cabin pressure, are necessary for extravehicular activity, work done outside spacecraft. Space suits have been worn for such work in Earth orbit, on the surface of the Moon, en route back to Earth from the Moon. Modern space suits augment the basic pressure garment with a complex system of equipment and environmental systems designed to keep the wearer comfortable, to minimize the effort required to bend the limbs, resisting a soft pressure garment's natural tendency to stiffen against the vacuum. A self-contained oxygen supply and environmental control system is employed to allow complete freedom of movement, independent of the spacecraft. Three types of space suits exist for different purposes: IVA, EVA, IEVA. IVA suits are meant to be worn inside a pressurized spacecraft, are therefore lighter and more comfortable.
IEVA suits are meant for use such as the Gemini G4C suit. They include more protection from the harsh conditions of space, such as protection from micrometeorites and extreme temperature change. EVA suits, such as the EMU, are used outside spacecraft, for either planetary exploration or spacewalks, they must protect the wearer against all conditions of space, as well as provide mobility and functionality. Some of these requirements apply to pressure suits worn for other specialized tasks, such as high-altitude reconnaissance flight. At altitudes above the Armstrong limit, around 19,000 m, water boils at body temperature and pressurized suits are needed; the first full-pressure suits for use at extreme altitudes were designed by individual inventors as early as the 1930s. The first space suit worn by a human in space was the Soviet SK-1 suit worn by Yuri Gagarin in 1961. A space suit must perform several functions to allow its occupant to work safely and comfortably, inside or outside a spacecraft.
It must provide: A stable internal pressure. This can be less than earth's atmosphere, as there is no need for the space suit to carry nitrogen. Lower pressure allows for greater mobility, but requires the suit occupant to breathe pure oxygen for a time before going into this lower pressure, to avoid decompression sickness. Mobility. Movement is opposed by the pressure of the suit. See the Theories of space suit design section. Supply of breathable oxygen and elimination of carbon dioxide. Unlike on Earth, where heat can be transferred by convection to the atmosphere, in space, heat can be lost only by thermal radiation or by conduction to objects in physical contact with the exterior of the suit. Since the temperature on the outside of the suit varies between sunlight and shadow, the suit is insulated, air temperature is maintained at a comfortable level. A communication system, with external electrical connection to the spacecraft or PLSS Means of collecting and containing solid and liquid bodily waste Advanced suits better regulate the astronaut's temperature with a Liquid Cooling and Ventilation Garment in contact with the astronaut's skin, from which the heat is dumped into space through an external radiator in the PLSS.
Additional requirements for EVA include: Shielding against ultraviolet radiation Limited shielding against particle radiation Means to maneuver, release, and/or tether onto a spacecraft Protection against small micrometeoroids, some traveling at up to 27,000 kilometers per hour, provided by a puncture-resistant Thermal Micrometeoroid Garment, the outermost layer of the suit. Experience has shown the greatest chance of exposure occurs near the gravitational field of a moon or planet, so these were first employed on the Apollo lunar EVA suits; as part of astronautical hygiene control, a space suit is essential for extravehicular activity. The Apollo/Skylab A7L suit included eleven layers in all: an inner liner, a LCVG, a pressure bladder, a restraint layer, another liner, a Thermal Micrometeoroid Garment consisting of five aluminized insulation layers and an external layer of white Ortho-Fabric; this space suit is capable of protecting the astronaut from temperatures ranging from −156 °C to 121 °C.
During exploration of the moon or Mars, there will be the potential for lunar/Martian dust to be retained on the space suit. When the space suit is removed on return to the spacecraft, there will be the potential for the dust to contaminate surfaces and increase the risks of inhalation and skin exposure. Astronautical hygienists are testing materials with reduced dust retention times and the potential to control the dust exposure risks during planetary exploration. Novel ingress/egress approaches, such as suitports, are being explored as well. In NASA space suits, communications are provided via a cap worn over the head, which includes earphones and a microphone. Due to the coloration of the version used for Apollo and Skylab, which resembled the coloration of the comic strip character Snoopy, these caps became known as "Snoopy caps." To supply enough oxygen for respiration, a space suit using pure oxygen must have a pressure of about 32.4 kPa, equal to the 20.7 kPa partial pres
An environmental suit is a suit designed for a particular environment one otherwise hostile to humans. An environment suit is a one-piece garment, many types feature a helmet or other covering for the head. Where the surrounding environment is dangerous the suit is sealed; the first environmental suits were diving suits designed to protect a diver from the surrounding water. Developments were designed to protect the wearer from the cold or from undersea high pressure and the resulting decompression sickness. Protecting the wearer from cold is a feature of ski suits. In aviation, pressure suits protect fighter pilots from hypoxia / altitude sickness, g-suits from the adverse effects of acceleration; the most extreme environmental suits are used by astronauts to protect them during ascent and while in the vacuum of space: space suits and space activity suits. Such suits are self-supporting, include a supply of oxygen for the wearer. Environmental suits are used to protect the wearer from contamination, or conversely to protect the environment from contamination by the wearer.
The concept of an environmental suit protecting someone from contamination is a feature of the boy in the bubble trope: both David Vetter and Ted DeVita at some point used such suits.
