    Mario fixed many of my pencil skirts, work blazers, and work dresses. I even commissioned him to make me a full three piece suit made of raw silk and it is beautiful!! I am a size 12 and 5'8", so sometimes pencil skirts and dresses do not fit me quite right. There is usually a very big gap around my waist and hips, and for work I wear mostly very high end suits. Mario did a great job of taking in the waists on everything. All my clothes look like they were made for me!!! He even fixed zippers on my older clothes and hemmed a few things for me. To make my suit, he asked for a suit I really liked and he kept it for a while and made a pattern of it so now I can always go back to him when I want a custom suit! How cool is that? Very respectful, very quick with the small jobs, and he has a great vision for bigger projects. He is very reliable and honest about what he can do. Awesome work!!

    I asked Mario to shorten two pairs of pants and modify the seams on a shirt for me. He came and picked up the pieces, then called me a few hours later because he was already finished. He dropped off the pieces and the work was done perfectly. I couldn't be more satisfied with Mario's service. He is also very friendly and clearly knowledgeable and experienced. I'm interested in learning to sew myself and he said he is happy to offer tutoring as well.

    Thanks, Dee I am enjoying designing Urbanwear, the look is fitted, sleek, with a taper on the pants, the shirts and jackets.

    In the early 80's Mario designed and crafted a collection of day and evening wear for myself and a number of friends, in his Pasadena, CA studio. We all loved the clothes and he also had them in a number of stores in L.A. I would definitely recommend Mr. Kenny's work. Alex Alexander/Honolulu, Hawaii

    Thanks so much Alex I wish I had pictures of all of the clothes, no one had cameras easily available.

What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I would want to know my measurements and what size of which clothing would work with me. Sometimes you can use over sizes and alter them to look even sharper, so there are many ways to think about this. Sometimes for instance when Tailoring the seat of a pants, the Tailors` job could be somewhat acward,
