STS-26 mission specialist 'Pinky' Nelson watches as Boeing personnel alter his flight coveralls during wardrobe fitting conducted at the Boeing Building near the Johnson Space Center.

I like how the guy far in the background is wearing a headset. No doubt reporting a status update to Mission Control on the CWFR (Crew Wardrobe Fitting Review), or what everyone must have called "quiver."

Two people doing the physical work, two people supervising, and another one reporting the progress, this must have been government work.

Interesting photo and I always get a kick at seeing some of the on-wall photographs in the area. Looks to be standard NASA lithos for Apollo 14 with Shepard/flag on the moon and an Apollo 10 composite image above the flight coveralls rack. Next to them appears to be a large framed Apollo 14 lunar surface site chart.
