I have this book as a resource in my costume design library. The latex material works well in applications that need strong compression and a different look.
as for fitting - well make a snug sloper from muslin. pants should be snug and comfy when standing and too tight for sitting. shirt should be tight as practical, just keep in mind the sleeves will have to be taken in.
when you have your sloper subtract about 5% from the horizontal measurements
and maybe 2% from the vertical ones. that will get you a decent snug fit.
take notes and be prepared to make fine adjustments.
don;t make latex garments too tight. they will fail at stress points. avoid long vertical zippers if possible. there is a huge stress point at the end of a zipper.
when preparing a zipper apply glue to it 2 or three times, letting it dry.
that covers most of the holes in the book :)
