It is forbidden to do any laundry during the week of Tish'a Be'av. Even if a person has only one outfit, he still may not launder it during the week of Tish'a Be'av. Likewise, we also do not wear freshly washed clothing, including undergarments. In hot climates where it is necessary to change clothing, one may wear the garments in advance for a short time so that they will not be considered freshly laundered when he puts them on later. One may even switch garments a number of times before the Shavua Shehal Bo starts just so that he can wear them once it starts. Switching clothes frequently may even be done on Shabbat and is not considered preparing for the weekday since after all the clothes are being worn on Shabbat. If a person didn't prepare any clothing beforehand and he's worried about losing his self respect, he may wear fresh clothes.
