I have been a customer of Dil's for the last year and cannot be any happier. He helped me purchase two suits and provided lifetime alterations. He was direct and to the point on which designs looked best on me. You can tell that his years of experience definitely make him of the best tailors in the DC area. After he took his measurements it took about a week until I had the the best fitting suits I have ever had. I cannot recommend Dil and Scogna Custom Tailor enough!

I was invited to a last minute Christmas/Holiday party that was black tie attire and I had less than 24-hours to arrange a tuxedo rental. Mr. Dil was very communicative and quick to reply when I asked if a same day rental with alterations would be possible. I was able to get the tuxedo and the whole experience working with Mr. Dil was an absolute pleasure. I have lived in DC for a little over 3-years and Scogna Custom Tailor and Formal Wear will be my go to now for tailoring, custom dress clothes, and rentals. I highly recommend and will be back!

I had a great experience at Scogna. Mr. Dil really did a great job making alterations to my tuxedo. He even notice some slight stitching errors by the manufacturer and kept my suit for a little longer to fix it for no charge! He did a great job and even left me with some tuxedo studs to go. I’ll make sure to go back any time I need an alteration.
