Chapter 122:16
Between the 17th of Tammuz and Tisha B'av

16. As mentioned in Law 9, on Shabbos Chazon (the Shabbos before Tish'ah B'av) one may wear white linen garments. This refers to underwear and socks, which are worn only to absorb perspiration. With regard to one's outer garments, the permissibility of wearing one's usual Shabbos clothes depends on [local] custom. In the synagogue, it is customary to change the curtain for the ark ("peroches"), the tablecloths, and the mantle [for the Torah] on Shabbos Chazon, but not on Tish'ah B'av itself [in the years when] it falls on Shabbos.
