This place is old-school legit. I brought in a women’s “smoking” tuxedo to have the pants hemmed, and Mr Dil noticed all kinds of fit issues that he should fix - even pointed out that one of my shoulders was slightly higher than the other (!) and redid the jacket sleeves to adjust for that. The tailored suit fits me like a glove. So happy to have found this place! Mr Dil is a true master. Don’t take your alterations anywhere else!

Mr. Dil at Scogna Custom Tailor is truly a master of his craft. He provided expertise and advice on tailoring my two-piece suit, and I could not be more satisfied with his work. His experience in tailoring presidents and diplomats demostrates a high level of knowledge and skill. I sincerely recommend using his services, you won't be disappointed!

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!
