I didn't realise the costs were so eye-watering!

Mind you the engineering in the 'suits' is staggering. 

IKR! 
Spun steel at how much a yard!?  

Should be a lot cheaper though once they train the genetically modified spiders

NASA's also got a nice history of high altitude pressure suits available for free download. They're not true space suits, but they're their close cousins. In fact, the SR-71 suit was adapted into the suits the Gemini crews wore, which were then adapted further for the Space Shuttle crew launch and entry suits. It's a good read if you're into these things.
