Again, depending on your religion, this could have different answers.

For example, I might say that in the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve covered themselves up and therefore made "clothes."

When GAP went back in time to sell clothes to Adam and Eve, you mean.

"Oh, this fig leaves throwover is all the rage nowadays!"

A monument to M. Bison. They've traveled all the way to paralleled universe. There's nowhere Duck can't go.

Nicked from wiki:
The topic of when humans first started wearing clothes is still under debate by archaeologists and anthropologists alike. Early clothing most likely consisted of fur, leather, leaves, or grass that were draped, wrapped, or tied around the body; since such material tends to deteriorate quickly it is difficult to find traces of such items. However, archeologists have identified very early sewing needles of bone and ivory from about 30,000 BC, found near Kostenki, Russia in 1988. Also, dyed flax fibers that could have been used in clothing have been found in a prehistoric cave in the Republic of Georgia that date back to 36,000 BP.

There also exists a study conducted through genetic analysis of human body lice that suggests clothing originated quite recently, around 107,000 years ago. Body lice is an indicator of clothes-wearing, since most humans have sparse body hair, and lice thus require human clothing to survive. The research suggests the invention of clothing may have coincided with the northward migration of modern Homo sapiens away from the warm climate of Africa, thought to have begun between 50,000 and 100,000 years ago. However, a second group of researchers using similar genetic methods estimate that clothing originated around 540,000 years ago. For now, the date of the origin of clothing remains unresolved.

Question Duck:
"Did you know that women prefer Old Question for their men one bajillion times more than lady-scented body washes? Did you know that I'm riding this human, backwards?"

In the 90s, evidence of woven cloth was found amongst some of the earliest evidence of human activity. Archaeologists were puzzled over these strange impressions in fossilized mud. Then a women who initially trained to be a fashion designer before switching majors to archaeology identified the impressions as those of woven cloth.
