When one buys a new article of clothing that a shechayanu would technically be made on, at what point is the bracha made? When the person purchases it? Or when they wear it for the first time?
Rishonim (see Sh.O. O.H. 223:3-4) rule that the brocha should be done when the person purchases the clothes, but achronim (Ben Ish Hai,Rav Ovadya Yosef [in his Shiurim he said this]) say one should recite the brocha only when he actually wears it.
Here is an article exactly about this question.
