Where did the name Damari Savile come from?
Damari, for Jenkin’s middle name, and Savile, London’s historical bespoke district, Savile Row, were melded together to create Damari Savile.
A dynamic playmaker on and off the football field, and a tireless philanthropist in the community, Malcolm Jenkins is a pillar in the city of Philadelphia.
Jenkins has fully immersed himself in the world of fashion. In 2012 Jenkins launched his own line of neckwear and accessories under the name of Rock Avenue. In 2017, he launched Damari Savile, and dove head first into the world of luxury men's suiting.
His hands on approach is what makes Damari Savile special. Its not everyday (unless you shop with Damari Savile) that you get to say that you wore a killer suit designed by a 3x Pro Bowl and 2x Super Bowl champion!
Jenkins though, doesn’t want his name alone to be what carries the brand. He works tirelessly to make sure that the product and design is of great quality and flawlessly tasteful. He recognizes that STYLE is attributed to the individual not the masses, and he aims to help everyone find their own style as he has found his.
Eric White, also know as “E”, is a Co-Owner and Director of Image and Relations. A former financial sector employee, Eric brings a multitude of knowledge and business acumen to accompany his industry leading fashion expertise. Originally from Wisconsin, White always had dreams of being in the fashion industry. It was in high school when Eric began to give fashion advise and build relationships with local clothing stores to ensure that the looks he conjured up where achievable.
After graduating from college and working in Finance for several years, White took a chance and began a personal styling business that lead him to work with some of the world’s most well known and respected athletes and entertainers. Since then, White has garnered relationships and partnerships with some of the largest brands in the world, and prides himself in being able to offer such access to our Damari Savile clients!
Since 2014, Eric has made a conscious effort to broaden his reach, and make personal styling services available to everyone who is willing to put forth the effort. White lives by the mantra:
“Fashion is for everyone, and can only be limited by one’s imagination.”
Eric’s goal is to not only have our clients present themselves at their best, but to make sure they know that they are FAMILY!
Alyssa Dimarcantonio Scheier
Alyssa DiMarcantonio Scheier joined Damari Savile in 2017 as lead designer, bringing her innate sensibility for menswear home to Philadelphia after nearly a decade in Midtown Manhattan.
From the first sketch to the final fitting, each custom creation is its own experience, and Alyssa is passionate about creating pieces that reflect each client's personality. She treats each creation with the same obsessive attention to detail it deserves, so the wearer steps out in a look that tells its own story without them ever having to say a word.
A Drexel University class of 2010 graduate, Alyssa apprenticed for Cappelli Tailors and interned for Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren while working toward her degree in fashion design. In her previous role at Rosetti Handbags and Accessories, she mastered her technical skills as she designed and developed product & prints with each new season.
In her first year with Damari Savile, Alyssa's creations have included regal, shirt-optional suits for the ESPYs, timeless and sleek wedding tuxedos, original lining designs, unique accessories, the addition of elevated women’s suiting and more, as her versatility and creativity go hand-in-hand.
Alyssa lives in South Philadelphia with her husband, Preston.
