    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.

    Have you tried a mental exercise of figuring out how one might possibly do this?

    The only solution is a sex change

    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.
