Client Reviews


My now husband wanted a custom suit for our December wedding and Capra &Cavelli was the first place we went. From the time we walked into the store everyone was nice and welcoming. We are so glad to have met Buddy who helped us with every detail. Buddy is so friendly and spent time with us making sure the suit was perfect and we love it! – Cassie D.

We came here for a tuxedo for my fiancé for our wedding. We came in once to choose the tuxedo, vest, and shirt and followed up with another fitting. The finished product was outstanding. – Kelly K.

Please do yourself a favor and go see my man Buddy Estrella at Capra & Cavelli. I went in looking to get a quality suit for my wedding. I left with not only with the slickest ensemble in Austin but also an incredible respect for what a true clothier like Buddy can do for his clients. – Jason C.

In the past year Kenneth has helped me to begin to build up my wardrobe. I started with a suit and a bunch of custom shirts and ties. Everything turned out very well. He then got me set up in a proper tuxedo for my wedding. Their prices are competitive, quality is top, and Kenneth’s expertise, taste, and customer service is superb. – Dio M.

So I had a nightmare experience from one of the online custom suit companies and long story short it didn’t work out and I needed a Tux ASAP for an upcoming wedding. We checked out Capra & Cavelli in hopes they sold tuxedos. Not only do they carry them, the quality and service we received was top notch. We met Buddy Estrella who was on point with his knowledge of clothing design and overall sense of what the customer wants. I had a bunch of questions and anxiety given the shortened time frame and prior experience, yet he addressed all my concerns and above all got me fitted into a tux that fits and looks perfect on me. I am so happy I found Buddy and the guys at Capra and Cavelli that I will certainly be back to get their made to order suits. – Mike H.

I had no idea what/how to buy a suit for my wedding, I just knew it was time to get one…and for this once-in-a-lifetime occasion, I wanted it done right. I was greeted first by Buddy Estrella…not with a ‘what can I do for you’ greeting, but really a ‘hi, how’s it going’ and informal chit-chat that certainly makes for an immediate comfortable setting…which showed me right out of the gate that customer service will be stellar, which to be honest…is what I hope for most when shopping. Eventually I explained my needs, and for the remainder of my time spent with Buddy, my needs were matched perfectly. Buddy was patient and so very helpful to a newbie like myself. To make a long-story short, I eventually chose the exact pattern and suit he ‘saw’ me in for my wedding day, and I was told that I looked ‘pretty damn good’. Those aren’t my words…I’m too humble for that. – Alan G.

I found Capra & Cavelli on Yelp, and went up there to find a tuxedo for my husband for our wedding…On all subsequent visits, Kenneth was our man. He helped us put together the entire look, nailed all the tailoring, and my husband’s tux looked fantastic on our wedding day. This store is certainly more expensive than we’re used to for suits and menswear (I think most suits would be in the $500-$1000) range, but it was definitely worth the splurge for a tux that looks like it was custom made. We plan to be back and invest in some additional suits. – Anna C.
