Pinched an item of clothing (5)
I believe the answer is:
I believe this clue is a double definition.
'pinched' is the first definition.
(pinch can mean to steal)
'an item of clothing' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)
(Other definitions for stole that I've seen before include "Pinched; wrap" , "Took - scarf" , "Garment; took unlawfully" , "Purloined; wrap" , "Made off with clerical vestment?" .)
