Halacha - new clothing -- shehecheyanu?
Submitted by CSY  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: If it is an article of clothing that is not purchased frequently and makes you excited to buy, you should recite Shehechiyanu. Technically, if it is wearable at purchase without alterations, the Beracha should be said immediately upon buying it. However, the Minhag is to always wait until the first time wearing it.
