Default Question about puppy's mouthing

I've been reading up and I keep seeing that it is good to let them mouth your hands but giving an "ouch" now and then to teach to be gentle. In the same article it says never to let them mouth your cloths.

What I've been doing.

I've been doing this but it was unclear what to do when the go for the cloths. I've been holding the snout and telling him to sit. It seems to work but I want to know if this is to aggressive. I don't squeeze or yell I just hold his snout shut and make him sit.

I have also been keeping a chew toy with me to give him when he tries to chew on things he shouldn't.

Thanks in advance.
