Clothing companies should offer their expertise to the space program if space exploration companies or agencies want them to. Space companies are not experts in apparel or what is or is not comfortable. Such companies should rely on the expertise of manufacturers that can make space travel, often in uncomfortable and confined quarters, more comfortable.
I believe it is perfectly acceptable and helpful for clothing companies to offer their expertise to the space program in order to improve what our astronauts will wear. The space program certainly benefits in having participants clothed in more comfortable and functional items. The clothing companies have an opportunity to promote.
Clothing companies should offer their expertise to the space program. Fashion and space have a long history of working together.

The main job of a spacesuit is to protect its wearer. During spacewalks, it must provide a breathable atmosphere, allow for easy movement and maintain steady communications with a spacecraft. The outfit has to moderate temperature extremes, the sun’s rays can heat an astronaut up to 248 degrees Fahrenheit while the darkness of space can create chills of 256 degrees and be tough enough to protect against bombardment by dangerous micrometeorites so to make the spacesuit clothes more fashion would be a luxury.
