About Danifodi

My name is Danifodi Nizigiyimana.

I have always loved suits. As a small guy, finding the best fit was challenging. Having a job that required me to wear suits, I always looked big in all suits I wore. It always looked uncomfortable, so I decided to make my own suit.

As soon as I started doing this for myself, I knew I wanted to do it for others as well. Wearing my own tailored suit gives me a sense of confidence and self-esteem, and I want to help others achieve the same. 


In 2018, I started Danifodi Custom Suits, a culmination of everything I've learned throughout the years to give quality services and suits to customers.

My wife and I live in Des Moines, Iowa with our son, Michael. When I was fourteen years old, I came to the United States as a refugee with my family. It makes me so happy and proud to be able to do the work that I love here in Iowa.

About Shawn

My name is Shawn Loyola.

Currently 28 years old and I’ve been in tailored clothing for the last 10+ years since 2011 as well as custom side of tailoring since 2016 and this business is what I chose to represent for the impact it’s had on my life and the lives of those around me.  


I’m 5’8 and have long legs, a short torso, and have been a very slender guy my whole life; finding even regular clothes seemed to be a hassle and expensive.  When I started getting suits made for me it finally gave me the freedom to not only get the fit, I desire but also to design absolutely anything I want with no limitations whatsoever. No longer was I bothered with excess padding on the shoulder, ill-fitting pants with too low of a rise, buying suits off the rack from several companies only to have myself spending an additional $200 just for alterations didn’t seem right.

Made to measure has not only allowed me to show my personality through my creations but allowed my clients to also have the freedom to know they created themselves through what they’re wearing. They are a true walking representation of their personality and their professionalism. 
Dani and myself came together to share that passion and love for this industry through each garment we create in each and every one of you. We look forward for the business and experience we create together!

About Terry

My name is Terry Scott.

I am currently 26 years old and I've been in tailored clothing for the last 2 years. I started off selling ready to wear in the retail business as well as traditional Made to Measure.


When I was presented the opportunity to design handmade suits earlier this year from Shawn I jumped in right away. I love the idea of having no limitations to what we can make or size of how we measure with a client. We've truly made a way to personalize suiting compared to traditional retail businesses here and I'm excited to be building here in Houston, Texas

About Kyle

My name is Kyle Gee.


I am 27 years old currently, but ever since I was young it has been a struggle finding clothes that fit me properly, being that I was a skinny build I always was experimenting different styles to get the fit right, this sparked my interest of fashion.

I was introduced to the industry in 2016 and as I gained more knowledge about the industry of suiting and tailoring, I took the perfect opportunity to work on my skills and share the same experience.
