Clothes are something you wear. Cloths are the bolts of fabric that might ultimately become your clothes. Cloth can be used to describe a very characteristic type of clothing worn in a specific profession or position. The term “man of the cloth” as a reference to priests derives from this meaning.

Example: Many different types of cloth are used to make today’s more fashionable clothes.
