Bridesmaids- your search for a go-to tailor is over. Fast, convenient, generous service. Dil turned a pink chiffon nightmare into a wearable dress for me in a super short time frame, and was lovely to work with in the process. I'm back for my next bridesmaid's dress and he gave me a great deal with a one day turnaround! He is loyal to his customers and I'm happy to support his business.

I recently lost a significant amount of weight and as a result, had to have three of my suits re-tailored. After coming to Scogna Custom Tailor and Formal Wear, I will not go anywhere else for my tailoring needs. What a fantastic experience! My suits were tailored to perfection and I couldn't be happier with the level of service provided. Look no further - this is where you need to go to have any tailoring done!

If you need a tuxedo, tailor, hem, or absolutely anything done to formal wear, go to this man. You walk in and can immediately tell that he's an expert. I had to rent a tux for a formal event and he got my measurements in less than a minute with a perfect fit. Suit looked great and his customer service is great. Cannot recommend Scogna enough.
