We sat down with Sal, a Savvi tailor, to answer any questions that you might have about formalwear:
What makes Savvi different from other men’s wedding apparel stores? No other store can offer such a wide range of tuxedo and suit styles, colors and sizes, while at the same time guaranteeing a perfect fit for your entire wedding party. And each Savvi location has staff trained in the art of tailoring. Our expertise and experience are what separate us from the competition.
What’s the value of a Savvi tailor, especially when we’re just renting?
It is because your groom is renting his wedding outfit that a Savvi tailor is important. Men come in all shapes and sizes. If the two of you choose to rent his wedding attire out of a catalog or online, there is no guarantee that his clothes will actually fit. Because of our fitting expertise, we can guarantee that the tuxedos will fit your groom and groomsmen perfectly. There is just no substitute for trying on your tuxedo, or the hands-on attention of one of our expeienced tailors.
Why is fit so important? This is the most important day of a man’s life, and 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 a day, those pictures will last a lifetime. But beyond how he will look, you should also consider how he will feel. He will have enough on his plate already without having to be uncomfortable in an ill-fitting tuxedo or suit.
That makes sense, but how can you guarantee everything will fit perfectly? We offer a free Groom’s Fashion Try-On. Prior to making his selection, your groom is invited to come in to 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. With our attention to detail, we are so confident that his clothes will fit properly that we offer a SureFit guarantee: It fits or it is free.*
What about the groomsmen? Most of ours live out of state. We have over 400 locations within our network across North America. And better yet, we offer “Flexible Fitting Options.” Let’s say his best man lives in the Midwest, but your wedding is on the East Coast. We can fit him there and he can pick it up here. For more details see our groomsmen fittings page.
*In-store try-on during final fitting required at least 24 hours before event begins. Additional visit for alterations and/or replacement garments may be required to achieve optimal fit. Fit guarantee is based on Savvi Fitting Matrix. See store for details.
