    So not looking for 'clothing' song titles, ruling out A White Sports Coat, Blue Suede Shoes, Green Shirt etc etc...

    Looking for songs you know where clothing is referenced in the lyrics somewhere... like this:



    "There's a chill in the air coming off the river tonight
    Sure am glad I chose my sweater"

    Boots AND socks in this Kirsty MacColl number...



    The boots just go back on
    The socks that had stayed on
    The next time they see you
    They treat you like dirt

    Today is her birthday
    They're smoking cigars
    He's got a chain of flowers
    And sews a bird in her knickers

    Do you remember barefoot on the lawn with shooting stars
    Do you remember loving on the floor in Belsize park
    Do you remember dancing in stilettos in the snow
    Do you remember you never understood I had to go

    Not sure I'm beating that without thinking too hard... haha. Marillion (Pseudo Silk Kimono and Kayleigh)
