Planning a luxury trip into space? Then you better start thinking about what you're going to wear. Orbital Outfitters has created the next generation of space suits for galactic travelers.

"'Have Spacesuit – Will Travel,' from the famous Robert Heinlein novel, is also the tagline of a new company that intends to do just that – make sure a new generation of commercial civilian Space travelers, adventurers and explorers fly in style and safety in Space suits like none designed before," an Orbital Outfitters press release said.

This isn't as far fetched as it sounds. Thousands of people have already signed on for space vacations. Pair the space suit with a pair of Asics Space Sneakers, and you're good to go!

"There's a new era starting right now in Space," said chairman and president Rick Tumlinson. "Billions of dollars are flowing into all kinds of new commercial spaceships to carry all kinds of people into Space. Orbital Outfitters and our parent XTreme Space Inc. intend to help make this happen, make it happen in style, and make it happen at a profit – for the rocket companies, for us and for our investors."

Can't quite afford an orbital excursion yet? That's OK. There are plenty of futuristic fashions you can wear here on earth still. Seek a little inspiration from the outfits following the features on space travel.
