Any time you ask for equipment recommendations, PLEASE include a budget. In fact almost any SLR made today will meet these requirements. For any sort of product photography, the camera is the least important part of the equation; the lenses and lighting are what make or break the images. I am not 100% sure if the entry-level Nikon bodies permit tethering, but I believe that all Canon ones do, (nb: Nikon charges extra for their tethering software, Canon IIRC includes it with the camera purchase).

If you're using manufacturers speedlights for lighting than you will need to ensure you have a body which has a "Commander" mode (Nikon term, unsure of others), however I would recommend the purchase of a separate wireless trigger system. These can cost from $50 to $250. I would also avoid Sony as their non-standard hotshoe may be problematic.

And it likely won't take you more than a year or so to learn how to use the DSLR, lights, and light modifiers to make half way decent commercial grade images of the clothes.
