Proposed Canon

Raiment is clothing worn by units. It is created by Dollamancy, of the natural variety as well as by Dollamancer spells. A Dollamancer or a Unit with natural Dollamancy, like a Twoll, can design raiment. Every unit is popped with a single outfit of clothing, and must be provided additional raiment if they are to change clothes. Ken, a Dollamancer from the Magic Kingdom was responsible for Maggie's new raiment. It is possible that at least one of the Archons of Gobwin Knob has the ability as they all seem to have at least two raiments each (standard and sleepwear)

Raiment colors are frequently used to identify the units of a side. In the real world, uniforms and livery are generally associated with the heraldry of their ruling lord. In Erfworld, in addition to particular colors of raiment, units also often bear a device representing their Ruler, Chief Warlord, or Caster, depending on the circumstances of their creation. This device is called Livery.

Speculation

Extra raiments are carried in the Unit's Inventory.

It's possible that certain raiments gives bonuses to certain stats, which would explain Wanda's constant change in clothing as she dresses for each specific occasion (be it a torturing, a battle, or a seduction). This may have been confirmed by Vinny's explanation of his and Jillian's "Grease" costumes as preparation for dance fighting.
