I just got my leather jacket from the Diesel sale at Gilt, however my jacket arrived damaged. I'm going to talk to them about this problem, but meanwhile, I would like to know if a tailor could fix this, and about how much would one expect to pay? Also Will the lining have to be removed to stitch it closed properly?

The jacket is not ripped anywhere, and is fully lined (cotton body, poly sleeves), if that matters.

This is a quick fix, and don't pay more than $25 for it.

Hello,

I am the head tailor / designer at BeyondBespoke.com.

This is a relatively easy fix, and the lining will not need to be removed. It will likely take a tailor minimum 30 minutes to repair since it is a tough fabric to work with. Expect to pay $25 to $50.
