Translated by Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum
Be very particular about your clothes. Never treat them carelessly and make sure they are not stained or dirty. A person's clothes become his judges if he does not show them the respect they deserve. The greater the individual, the better care he should take of his clothes, because the higher one's level the more scrupulously he is judged.
Likutey Moharan I, 29

Clothes allude to the chashmal (Ezekiel 1:27 ) , a concept of protection. See that your clothes are always in good condition and not torn, because torn clothing indicates inadequate protection. A person's clothes turn into his accusers if he does not take proper care of them, show them respect and keep them clean.
Likutey Moharan I, 127
