Wearing new clothes for a simcha during Aveilus

Question:

Is there any leniency for wearing new clothes at our son’s bar mitzvah without having others wear it first while in the year of Aveilus?

Answer:

I don’t know of any leniency other than having someone else wear it first, so that it don’t look new and fresh.
