Re: Exile, I've never thought about the references to torn clothes before.
As far as symbolism goes, I guess torn clothes show decay, being washed up, etc. They also, though, reveal what they once covered. If the clothes are gone, you see the skin.
I tend to doubt it was by design, but it is interesting that Exile is viewed as the Stones at their purest - stripped down, perhaps, to the blues/country roots of rock and roll.
