New mesh, well then look at the discussion about using smd to add bumpmaps -- but that only works if the clothing already HAD bumpmaps in it's original form.
There's one discussion here:

If you can't find an appropriate skin you will need to modify one to support the number of layers you need. It is possible but it's a bit complicated.
But there is a trick you can use that seems to work. Instead of having X number of alphas all named differently. If they are using the same texture definitions & textures you can have multiple groups named the same thing but with different alpha values. In one of my experiments I have 6 alpha groups but they are linked to only 2 definitions total. But they each have a different level of opacity. In milkshape I gave them each a unique name, set their opacity levels in the comments, and listed them from body, then farthest from body to closet to body (don't know if that mattered). Then in Simpe I changed all the alpha groups names to be the same. Doing it this way you'll have smaller packages, you won't have the same texture multiple times.
And this was for translucent skins (blend in definition).
Oh I did not try this on a mesh that morphs, so I don't know if there would be any issues when it morphs.
