The legend himself; Steve Ditko answers if he was influenced by the 1950's Ben Cooper Spiderman costume when he was designing Spider-man for Marvel in a letter to me and it's genius! Read it here!!

I remember this costume, yes. But not any possible "influence" it had on the creation of Spiderman itself.

it is quite possible that Ditko saw it once or twice and maybe was inspired a bit, but there is a difference between influence and copycat.

Ditko's response to your letter is quite amusing. is he covering a lack of memory or covering the truth? \:\)

as to Jack "King" Kirby, didn't he just submit a couple of costume drawings at the most? I think his involvement with Spidey's creation was peripheral at best as his name does not show in the credits on Amazing Spiderman.
