Halacha - new clothes
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: when a person gets new clothes, shoes... people make a bracha such as shehecheyanu or malbish arumim. how do you know what brachah to say and when you say it?
Answer:

On new clothes that are special enough that one is excited to purchase them the beracha of shehecheyanu is recited. We do not say this beracha on shoes or other leather garments.

The proper time to recite this beracha is immediately on purchasing the article of clothing if it is bought ready to wear. However if the object needs adjusting, then the beracha is recited the first time it is worn.
