We have had many questions about maintenance and care of your Savillian garments, and now that you are all true “Savillians”, we want to make sure that you preserve the true nature of your garments.
 
At Savillian, we do not favour dry cleaning as it uses very harsh chemicals. Since your suit is made of wool, it is equivalent to taking a sheep to slaughter. This also applies to your collared shirts and pants as well.

Suit Care

Our suits are delivered ready to wear, so there is no need to dry clean before your first use. We recommend a light brushing using a soft/natural brissel brush. Just as you may be tired after a hard day (or a night out), your suit is just as wary. It may require another good brushing and most importantly it needs a shower. Not a literal shower, but a “steam clean”. When showering, hang your suit up in the washroom, the steam from the shower will remove any odours that may have built up in your suit. Steam cleaning will also magically remove wrinkles! Alternatively, you can ask your dry cleaner to steam clean/press your suit for around $10. We are not totally against dry cleaning, it depends on how much you wear your suit. We recommend that if you wear your suit once or twice a week than drying cleaning once a season is sufficient. You are probably wondering about that ketchup stain, well those require individual attention right away and not necessarily full out dry cleaning.

Shirt Care

We recommend that you wash your shirt inside out in the washing machine on a cold water setting. Then, hang dry indoors. In this way, the fabric, colour, and size of the shirt will stay in tact.
