So I just got my off the rack suit jacket tailored to shorten its overall length. Well I brought it home and its too short now. It's about the same length as my sleeves. Can my tailor fix this and length my jacket again?

No. That's why you're supposed to look when they pin it up.

No, they can't fix that.

That is one of the issues with off the rack, there's not a lot of options for alteration unlike with custom tailoring where you usually have alterations for free.

Lol this has to be a troll, because a normal person would ask the damn tailor...
