    The item brand is located just below the name of the item while in your inventory, the majority of starting weapons are Spacer's Choice however finding the clothing and headgear can be tricky at the start of the game. Head to the first town, Edgewater, then go to the General Store and purchase the Mining Helmet and Worker Outfit. Both are 50 bits, if you don't have four Spacer's Choice weapons you can also purchase them from him, but I had more than enough from killing enemies along the way. The Hibernation Suit that you start with is labeled as a Spacer's Choice but the achievement did not unlock for me until I took it off and wore the Worker Outfit. You can also save and reload after you get the achievement if you don't want to spend your bits on the clothing.

    Edit: The Hibernation suit may work, try equipping it with the rest of gear first, then buy the Worker Outfit if it doesn't.

    In this video guide I will show you how to simultaneously equip Spacer's Choice brand clothing, headgear, and 4 weapons. Now this can be done very early on if you pay attention to the brand under the name. Also if you check every vendor, especially the Spacer's Choice ones first. Check any person who sells gear also.

    If you miss this you can easily get it on Monarch. There is a Spacer's Choice vendor right next to the ship where you first land on the planet. Buy all those weapons, then head down South on the map. There will be people who sell gear as well. The one girl will sell Spacer's Choice armor, buy that and will only need the headgear. Next go to the town called Fallbrook. The town is almost at the bottom of the map, Southeastern. There will be a building with two merchants inside. Talk to the man for the eye patch. Then go into your items and equip all the slots with Spacer's Choice for the achievement to pop.

    - You need to equip a "Spacer's Choice" weapon in each of the 4 slots. These are very common and easy to find. Right under the weapons name will tell you what Manufacturer it came from.

    - You also need to equip Armor and Headgear that's Spacer's Choice as well...
    You can buy both of these in the Edgewater General Store for cheap, you could always SAVE before you purchase this, acquire the cheev, then re-load that save if you wanna save the bits
