The article publishes a newly reconstructed manuscript of the terrestrial omen series Šumma ālu. It is the editio princeps of a group of omens dealing with a man's clothing. Furthermore, it discusses the placement of the garment omens within the series with a special focus on the excerpt tablet K.9128+. The article concludes with a study of MS 3104, a miscellaneous Old Babylonian omen collection that has parallels with the garment Tablets and K.9128+.
