Testimonials

Unbelievable service, quality and attitude. While I'm not famous like many of his customers, I was in town for a wedding and forgot my tux jacket and slacks. My concierge at the St. Regis called him, at 7:30pm, after closing but he took the call, I was in his shop by 7:45 fitted and walked out of his shop shortly after 8, made it to 8:30pm pre-wedding cocktail party shortly after it started at 8:30 in Georgetown! He didn't even charge a premium! I will always recommend Scogna and Mr. Dil!

The Master Tailor, Dil, is amazing at his craft. He has made bespoke suits for numerous presidents, politicians, journalists, and TV hosts, so naturally his talent stretches far and wide. I highly recommend going to see Dil and can promise that you will not regret it.

Mr. Dil is simply the best! I went in with not one, but two dresses that I needed altered in a quick turnaround. He asked me my deadline and was able to work over time to complete it before my requested timeline. Mr. Dil is a tailor fit for the President and that’s why he works on the presidents custom tailor jobs. If you’re reading this, use Mr. Dil.
