An interesting pair of blue coveralls for a large man (although the size is given as "M" for medium), bearing NASA and "Space Shuttle" emblems, possibly from a so-called "space camp", or possibly a Halloween costume, or, it could be authentically a NASA artifact; I lean towards the "space camp" theory.
