Not for asking, but for getting pissed at their answer: yes.Am I out of line here?
Bottom line is that had they said yes, even if you were paying, you're displacing that store's other customers (for whom, I presume, the tailoring is offered as a service).
Think about it - what if you just bought some items at that store, wanted them tailored as part of the service that they offer, and they say "it'll be two weeks longer than usual because our tailor is busy doing clothers that customers brought in from other places." Suddenly their service as part of the purchase feels more like a burden. Like it or not, that's what your request would have been part of.
Now, had they had the time/bandwidth to squeeze you in, kudos to them. But you shouldn't be ticked that they couldn't.
