Always check to see if the shoulders and collar of the jacket fit, everything else can be altered reasonably easily.

No it is not too big. And it is not tall enough (not sure there). -> Post a picture of the reverse.

If it is more than in inch short it can be altered easily?

It seems short for a traditional suit. You're walking in Thom Browne territory there.

It's not too big...

The jacket looks off balanced with not enough chest fabrics, pulling the front quarters closed. If anything I would try to size up and have tailors remove some shoulders (or abandon this cut completely).

"altered down"


Yes the jacket does seem a little too "fashionably short".
