- Nicole BThis 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!
- James VMr. 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!
- Christina BMr. Dil is a great tailor! He has done an incredible job on a number of dresses and blouses I brought to him. He is very professional, fast and meticulous in his work. He’s also done a few same day alterations. Happy to support his business. Thank you!
