Question:

I was looking at Ber. 28:20 and Devarim 10:18. What’s the difference between Beged, Simlah and Salmah?

Answer:

Ibn Ezra Shemos 22 says that the differance between simlah and salmah is that salmah is referring to a specific article of clothing and simlah refers to clothing as a whole.

Gr”a Shemos 22 says that simlah is an outer garment and salma is an inner one.

I haven’t seen anyone that discusses the difference between beged and the other two.
