Long moustaches, a salient feature of the non-believers

Our Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) generosity

Question

Is there a Hadith which states:

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) received a garment from someone. When he wore it and came out, someone from the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) saw him and he asked Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) for it. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) immediately went to his house, wore his old clothes and gave the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) the new one. The Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) reprimanded the other Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhu) who asked for Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) new dress because Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would never deny someone’s request. The Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said that he had his own reason, to shroud himself in that piece of cloth when he passed away.
