To save confusion, can we give them names? Perhaps we can call the boy who wore the item John, and the famous person Joshua?

Is the 'clothing' item:

a pair of spectacles?
a monocle?
a toupee?
a false beard?
a moustache?
a natty wig or similar hairpiece?
a badge?
a rosette?
a tie?
cravat?

A nappy? A dummy? A seat belt? A harness? No to all- and most of those would be called clothing by nobody. I would have thought it was really easy to work out the article of clothing.

So, as a recap attempt...

During a childhood argument between John and Joshua, Joshua grabbed a knife and attempted to slash John with it. However, the knife hit John's belt, and so did not harm him.

Joshua later became famous, and the childhood incident is somehow related to this. Joshua's profession is not relevant.

This good?

Did John have a hand in making Joshua famous?

During a childhood argument between John and Joshua, Joshua grabbed a knife and attempted to slash John with it. However, the knife hit John's belt, and so did not harm him. Yep

Joshua later became famous, and the childhood incident is somehow related to this. No, actually- a better way to phrase the puzzle statement would have been "If John hadn't been earing that, Joshua wouldn't have become famous" Joshua's profession is not relevant. Not really

This good?

Did John have a hand in making Joshua famous? No

I actually reckon, upon looking again, that you're close enough for a

****SPOILER****

'Joshua' is Ben Carson. When he was a teenager, he got into an argument with a friend, 'John' and attempted to stab him with a knife in anger. The knife, however, hit 'Johns' belt, leaving him unharmed. Ben Carson then grew up to become a neurosurgeon, you know the rest. If he had killed 'John', though, it could have turned out very differently.
