Question
I know that one can purchase an item of clothing during the nine days if it is on sale (hephsed mamon). My question: If the item is NOT on sale but will not be available after 9 Av in a particular size or style (due to limited quantities, for ex.), can one purchase it during the nine days???
Answer
Yes, you can buy it, but do not wear it. Rabbi Yitzchak Grinblat
