There were a couple of Silver Age Flash stories that dealt with the tailor who outfitted the Flash's Rogues Gallery.  How did he attract new clients?  Did he ever have normal pants to press?  Who fixed The Top's clothes when he tore his tights after this tailor was busted? 

Is there an underground haberdasher that specializes in hero wear as well?  If so, does he know thier secret IDs or is he content with a IOU from Superman? 

For that matter how does Superman pay for a date with Lois?  Where does he keep cash? Does he tip in diamonds he just made?

Now Klar, you know that he carries around his civvies as a compressed wafer in the pocket of his cape!  There's got to be a wallet or some bills in there!  In Maggin's Last Son he had a couple pieces of coal in there as well, for instant diamond use.

Don't know about super-villain costumers on Earth-One, but there was a super-hero costumer on Earth-Two whose name might be familiar! See this link: http://meltingpot.fortunecity.com/egypt/235/page22.html

Which begs the question, what happens to banknotes when they are compressed to wafer-size? Doesn't Superman feel silly paying for things with incredibly crumpled-up fivers?

this was actually dealt with in superfolks! as the main hero character goes and revists the old tailor who appernetly did lots of heroes and had special services for them. the idea of a superhero sitting down and fixing up his beaten up costume is darn silly!

Flash: HONESTLY green lantern this is the last time i team up with you, those interstellar aliens are just so rough with the material and not all of us have union-backed space tailors at our beck and call!

not to mention repeat washings of a costume.... i mean a hero in a faded costume due to washing just doesnt... inspire

and neal adams wrote himself into the DCU as a costume maker???
bizzare
