    Gents,

    I need some advice. I have an important occasion fairly soon and need my suit tailored quickly. I just need to reduce the length of the jacket sleeves (although quite frankly, I'm not sure if my jacket sleeves are too long or my shirt sleeves are too short).

    If you could suggest a tailor in Manhattan that can do this with a short turnaround time, I would be greatly indebted.

    Warmest regards

    Not sure about a tailor but in my experience most tailors will rush things (1-3days) but will charge double.

    I would certainly agree with that.  I once saw a sign in an airplane maintenance facility that I think would apply perfectly to the situation of alterations.

    "We do three kinds of work:  Good, Fast, and Cheap.  Choose two.

    If it is good and fast it will not be cheap,
    if it is good and cheap it will not be fast,
    if it is fast and cheap it will not be good."

    Just call up the usual suspects and ask if they do rush jobs and how much extra.
