What to Say When you Wear Something New (164)
The Messenger of Allah was such that if he newly acquired clothing he would name it by its name: either shirt, or turban, then, he would say: 'Allãhumma laka 'Al-hamdu 'anta kasawtaneehi 'as'aluka min khayrihi wa khayra mã suni`a, wa 'a`outhu bika min sharrihi wa sharri mã suni`a lahu (185)

(185) O my 'ilãh to You is all praise, You have clothed it upon me. I ask You the good of it, and the good it was made for; and I seek refuge in You from the evil of it, and the evil it was made for.


'Al-`Adawee said it was sound and that it was reported by 'Abu Dãwood, page 309 of volume 4; and others. 'Al-'Albãni said it was sound in his Saheeh Al-Jãmi` As-Sagheer wa Ziyãdatihi (#4664)
