Sloppy tailor job, WWYD?

Hey guys, first time posting so please don't go too hard on me.

I recently purchased 3 jackets and a pair of pants online from Giuliva Heritage and took them to a tailor where I live in LA to get them fitted. For the green suit, we had agreed on lengthening the sleeves and adding one more functioning buttonhole, taking in the waist, and closing the vents a little bit (I'm on the taller side). I picked everything up yesterday. The sleeves on all 3 jackets are uneven (right arm longer than left on all 3), a couple of the added buttonholes are misspaced, the thread on the new buttons looks obviously different from the native buttons, the tailor didn't touch the vents on the green jacket, and there's now a tiny stain by the new buttonhole on the right sleeve.

I attached a photo of the stain and the buttonwork.

How would you guys handle this? I don't want to give these items back to the tailor to fix when he's already stained one of the pieces.

Useful info:
  • The tailor came recommended on StyleForum and an LA-specific Reddit thread, and he does bespoke suits, so I thought he'd be able to handle the alterations
  • The total cost of the tailoring was $510
  • The cost of the jacket he stained was 1675 euro
  • The pants came out ok (just hemmed)
  • I am open to the possibility that I'm being whiny/entitled/ignorant, and am posting here because you guys seem very knowledgeable

For the future, I always recommend trying a new tailors services by only altering a single garment at a time.
