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.
