My 89 is completely stock at this point with the exception of the added wiring for trailer lights. My question is: Does the stock alternator have enough extra capacity to support heated clothing? I got gloves for Christmas but may consider other apparel as well. Thanks.

Yes.
Your alternator will run 2 sets of heated gear as you have no other high wattage accessories.

If you have not refreshed the insides of the alternator in the past 3 years, it would be a good thing to do to get full output as they are known to have the brushes get sticking from corrosion on the springs and or worn brushes. New brushes are cheap. You can do it or have an alternator shop do it.

And if you haven't already, install a voltmeter.
