Why not "we dragen kleren"?

We is also accepted, only not for listening exercises (type what you hear) as the pronunciation is different.

When translating the other way, that would be fine. That's also how the stress is placed in the audio, in that there is no stress. However, the word used is "zij", to indicate the stress that the audio then doesn't have.

Would this sentiment not be self evident.

clothing and clothes are both correct.

I'd be concerned if we weren't wearing clothes.
