- Alistair AI 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!
- Emily PDil is the best. I have come to him for dress, pant, and skirt alterations and he kills it every time. Always exactly what i wanted and goes the extra mile to do it in a timely fashion. His new location on the same street as the USPS is very easy to find, spacious, and with a fitting room. If something isn’t up to par, he’ll fix it for you so it’s right. I swear he works magic- ladies I highly recommend going to Scogna for any of you alteration needs.
- Justin DI 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!
