    Geoffrey Lewis, Ltd.: Custom Tailors of Distinction

    by John195123 Written Feb 10, 2014

    The hallmark of a good tailor, aside from quality products, is unparalleled service. I'm not the best-dressed guy, and I walked into Geoffrey Lewis wearing my EMS jacket because it was cold in DC in December. The staff didn't bat an eye. Instead, they were immensely welcoming and professional.

    I needed to get final fit measurements for a tux for a wedding. While the measurements I had provided got them close to the right sizes, they needed to perform a few modifications, which they would have done while I waited, but I didn't want to carry the tux around with me all day. No problem.

    The other cool aspect of Geoffrey Lewis is the atmosphere. It's not old-wood, old-world style of a British tailor shop that's been in business for 200 years, but it has the right atmosphere.

    So, if you need custom threads, or to rent a tux in DC, stop by and see Angelo and Helen Abatzis and I'm sure they'll take good care of you.

    What to pay: $100 for the rental.
