QUESTION: Is it permitted to buy and wear new clothes during the Three Weeks until Rosh Chodesh Av?

by Rabbi Doniel Neustadt (culled from Torah.org)

ANSWER: As we mentioned earlier concerning appliances, only the type of clothes that require a shehecheyanu should not be bought during this time. Thus shoes, shirts, pants and all undergarments may be purchased and worn without restriction until Rosh Chodesh Av. One who never recites shehecheyanu on clothes, even on expensive ones,(5) could also purchase and wear expensive clothes during this time.  Those who do recite shehecheyanu when putting on new clothes, may still buy and alter them until Rosh Chodesh Av but they may not be worn until after the Nine Days are over.(6) Mishnah Berurah(7) rules that on Shabbosos in the Three Weeks it is permitted to wear an item that requires shehecheyanu(.8) Other poskim are more stringent and do not permit wearing such clothes even on Shabbos.(9)

Thank you for my recent order of snoods, including snood beret, which is fabulous.  Thank you for all that you do for Klal Yisroel.

This is a wonderful seller to work with. She created this cowl collar dickey in a custom color I requested and shipped it quickly. The color was exactly what I wanted. This dickey drapes *beautifully* and the bodice fits invisibly under my blouse.

The dickey is absolutely gorgeous. I have been disappointed by what's available in stores. It's going to enhance all of my tops. It has a zipper and hooks on the back so it will be very easy to pull on over my head. I'm going to feel elegant and very much the lady!
