This example gets the current clothes of a certain type on a player, then swaps with the previous in the clothes list.

function scriptPreviousClothes ( thePlayer, key, clothesType )
  local currentTexture, currentModel = getPedClothes ( thePlayer, clothesType ) -- get the current clothes on this slot
  local clothesIndex = 1
  if ( currentTexture ) then -- if he had clothes of that type
    local tempA, tempB = getTypeIndexFromClothes ( currentTexture, currentModel ) -- get the type and index for these clothes, so we can decrease and get the previous in the list
    if ( tempA and tempB ) then -- if we found them
      clothesType, clothesIndex = tempA, tempB
  clothesIndex = clothesIndex - 1
  local texture, model = getClothesByTypeIndex ( clothesType, clothesIndex ) -- get the new texture and model
  if ( texture == false ) then -- if we've reached the end of the list
    removePedClothes ( thePlayer, clothesType )
  else addPedClothes ( thePlayer, texture, model, clothesType )
addCommandHandler ( "previousClothes", scriptPreviousClothes )
