All outfits are available in any of the three safehouses which include 101 Bayshore Avenue in Viceport, The Compound in Little Haiti, and The Clymenus Suite in Vice Point.

- When the player wears the Army Fatigues, he can enter the Fort Baxter Air Base without being attacked. But killing more than three soldiers inside the base will make them attack the player in retaliation.
- The Smart Suit is exactly the same style as Lance's suit (seen after you unlock the second island), the only differences are a lighter blue color to the outer layer, and a darker color to the interior of the suit.
- The "Hired Muscle" outfit's fingerless gloves are only seen in cutscenes, and in regular gameplay, only a wristband is seen.
