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.

Dill, the owner, is incredibly pleasant and very timely/efficient. His shop is a treat - he has had many newspaper stories on him which he has hung up. He's done dresses for Princess Diana, suits for numerous Presidents and First Ladies, and important people throughout DC. Highly recommend!

Let me start by saying that I had an incredible experience at Scogna Custom Tailor and Formal Wear. After having a couple of bad experiences with tuxedo rentals at other locations in the past, I decided to do my research this time around. Everything online seemed to indicate that Scogna was the best in town, and now I feel very confident that this is the case. I am preparing for a very formal, white tie event that will be taking place next month. I wasn’t quite sure of everything I was going to need for such an event, but the owner, Dil, did a great job explaining it all to me. He was quick and professional, and we had a very pleasant conversation about all of the interesting pictures on the wall. On top of everything, Dil gave me a fantastic price. If you are looking for a tux in D.C., I can’t recommend Scogna and Dil enough!
