Having landed a -52 many years ago with a Niagara Falls of avgas pouring from the wing. and on a separate occasion having a failed oil pipe send rather warm liquified ex-dinosaurs all over my feet, I’m quite happy in Nomex and decent boots thanks. No need in most regular spam but then they’re built to a civilian certification standard.
Ditto. I wear a flying suit in my Moth cos it's cold, oily, cramped and dirty. And there's nowhere to stow charts, pens, freq lists and so on except in pockets. So not posey; just practical.
