Performing salaah with animate pictures on one's clothes

Q:

1. If one prayed salaah while wearing clothes with a human picture which one missed to see and saw only after looking at them carefully, would those salaahss be valid? Does one need to repeat those salaahs?

2. What about praying salaah in clothes which have clear human/animal pictures?

3. If one prays next to or in front or behind someone wearing such clothes or wearing a work ID with visible picture of the person (around 2 inches in lenth and 2 inches in width) would the salaah be valid due to being in close proximity of a picture?

A:

1. It is valid.

2. It is makrooh to perform namaaz with this type of clothing.

3. Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
