Probably worth it if you've ever had a suit ruined by cigarette or cigar smoke. I spend $200-$300 on my business suits (complete not just a jacket). I can see this being a big thing for suit renters too.
I've worked in a plastic company... Titanium Dioxide is considered "Potentially Cancerous" in powder form! We had to wear dust masks working with this material, and even then, they had to remove this material from the ingredient list of plastic in 2008!
Don't believe Asian safety rules! The European ISO2008 norm gets only stricter and stricter...
There's a bit of common sense a person has, to know that ANY contact with ANY chemical, is ALWAYS disadvantageous!
A human body is created to interact with bio materials, not chemicals.
I could actually use that tech. The Micro part of my name not only refers to my stature (short) but also my profession (microbiologist). It would be comforting if our lab coats and even our regular clothes (cause the lab is way too hot for lab coats) had Ti02.

Yup - once saw some 'low-cal' blue cheese salad dressing that listed the ingedients as oil,water,emulsifier TiO2 and flavouring - basically cheese flavoured emulsiuon paint
This actually a old tech with a new twist, TiO2-coated self-cleaning windows have been around for quite a long time. The down side of this is that the cleaning / germ killing properties of TiO2 require activation by UV light - so the suit will only work outdoors in the sunshine, not in crowded germ ridden offices and tube trains
