Never used in a sentence, but clothing is discussed in "Klingon for the 
Galactic Traveller" on pp. 57 ff.  For example,

   A warrior's full set of armor, including weapons and clothing, is his 
   (literally, "battle gear"). Traditional clothing worn in battle, known 
as {HIp},
   the word currently used to mean "uniform," had both a protective 
function and a
   more utilitarian one, since it was from the clothing that weapons 
(nuHmey) or
   ammunition (nIch) could be hung.  (KGT 57)

Cf. also the noun {jech} "disguise, costume".  The verbs used for clothing 
are {tuQ} "wear (clothes)", {tuQmoH} "dress" and {tuQHa'moH} "undress, take 
off (clothes)".

Voragh                            "Damage control is easy. Reading 
Ca'Non Master of the Klingons      hard!"         (Montgomery Scott to 
Kirk, STIV)
