It seems to me that it would only be magic or very special items that
would have their own alignment restrictions. A leather jacket is usually
just a leather jacket - it doesn't care who wears it. If, however, it
is the Leather Jacket of Demon Slaying, then it probably would be unwise
for a vampire to wear it. In fact, if a vampire got hold of it, the
best thing he could do would be to destroy it, or hide it really good.

Taking stuff from your opponent is often done to deny them the use of
it, rather than to get the use of it yourself.
