I was panicking to find a quality tailor for a pretty difficult gown that I'm wearing for my rehearsal dinner. I was calling all around the DMV and was getting outrageous quotes from tailors. I called Mr. Dil at Scogna and he was super accommodating and asked if I could come in right away. He's been not only professional, but kind and personable. I could tell from the time we started that we was unlike any other tailor that I had had before. I highly recommend Mr. Dil and his expertise. He's been in the business for a long time and tells the best stories. I'm really happy I found him!

I have had strictly positive experiences with Scogna Custom Tailor and Formal Wear. Mr. Dil's knowledge about the business is unmatched and his light-hearted, caring attitude lets you know that you're at the best tailor in town. From my experiences, Mr. Dil is also a reliable and generous man. I needed a suit tailored earlier than I had anticipated, and Mr. Dil got it done with no complaints. His prices are fair for such high quality product. I look forward to coming back in the future and highly recommend Scogna Custom Tailor to anyone interested in their services.

I’ve called more than 10 shops in the area to find 80’s style tuxedo that I needed within 24 hours. I was impressed how Mr. Dil handled my last minute request and found exactly what I was looking for within 12 hours. Not only that, he also managed to design and make a large bow tie (80’s style) from scratch within couple of hours. Also, the shop is cosy, in the middle of Georgetown and you’ll be amazed by the amount of articles Mr Dil was featured in global newspapers such as The Times, alongside global leaders and celebrities. I’ll be back to make a tailor made suit with Mr Dil.
