One-on-one with Sal the Savvi Tailor
At this point, you might have burning questions about tuxedos, suits, and the world of formalwear. So we sat down with Sal, a Savvi tailor, to answer a few questions that you might have. So read on!
Q. What makes Savvi different from other men’s wedding apparel stores?
A. Savvi is the only specialist that guarantees a perfect fit for your entire wedding party. Making sure you look your best is our passion, so each Savvi location has a staff trained in the art of tailoring. Their expertise and experience are what separate us from the competition.
Q. Aren’t all tuxedos and suits just about the same?
A. No. Savvi offers more slim fit styles than any other formalwear provider. Other providers allow boxy looks to hide fitting imperfections. Our garments are specially designed to accent the male physique. Savvi offers slim fit coats, flat front pants, fitted shirts, and even slim fit accessories … all designed to make you look your best.
Q. What’s the value of a Savvi tailor, especially when we’re just renting?
A. It is precisely because the groom is renting his wedding tuxedo or suit that a Savvi tailor is important. Men, as everyone knows, come in all shapes and sizes. And if the two of you choose to rent his wedding attire out of a catalog, there is no guarantee that his clothes will actually fit. Because of our expertise, we can guarantee that the tuxedos will fit your groom and groomsmen perfectly.
Q. Why is fit so important?
A. We understand that this is the most important day of a man’s life. He will never be photographed more than on his wedding day. It is important that he looks his absolute best because, while the rental may only be for one day, those pictures will last a lifetime. Beyond considering how he will look, we also consider how he will feel. We know he will have enough on his plate already without having to be uncomfortable in an ill-fitting tuxedo or suit.
Q. That makes sense, but how can you guarantee that everything will fit perfectly?
A. We offer a free Groom’s Fashion Try-On. Prior to making his selection, the groom is invited to come into our shop and try on his choice of tuxedo or suit, insuring that the groom looks his absolute best in the styles that he selected. At this point, we will cover every inch to make sure his outfit fits him perfectly. This leaves us with plenty of time to make any necessary alterations before your big day. Because of our attention to detail, we are so confident that your clothes will fit properly that we offer a SureFit guarantee. We guarantee, “It fits or it is free.” (See store for details.)
Q. What about the groomsmen? Half of ours live out of state.
A. Yes, and that’s the case for most of the weddings we serve. There’s nothing worse than paying extra baggage fees only to end up with a wrinkled suit. So Savvi prepares everything in town so your groomsmen can be measured near home and let us handle the rest of the details when they arrive in town. It’s because of our wedding party expertise that we continue to win top awards across the wedding industry.
