For the most part, yes, because your bodyweight affects your Sinclair total, and clothes weigh something.
Pages 17-19 have the rules about the weightlifter's costume. You can wear knee sleeves and wrist wraps. There are rules about how big they can be, but generally, Rehbands and the most common wrist wraps fit the requirements. The one "issue" that I have to change for meets is the fact that I lift in knee socks and Rehbands, and you have to have space between your socks and any knee sleeves. So, you either can't pull your knee socks all the way up, or you have to wear shorter socks.
