New Clothing During Sefirah


clothing-girlsDuring Sefirah one is permitted to (purchase and) wear new clothing and make a beracha of Shehechiyanu on the new clothing {for those who have the custom to do so}. Shulchan Aruch w/Mishnah Brurah 493:1 MB2, Bein Pesach L’Shuvuos 16:1 citing R’ Chaim Kanievesky

Nevertheless, there are some who have the minhag to be machmir (stringent) and do not purchase or wear new clothing during sefirah. However, this is a stringency and it is not prohibited as it is during the three weeks (from the 17th of Tammuz until Tish’a B’Av). Piskei Tshuvos 493:2,3, S’U Yechave Da’as 1:24
