So I took a new suit into my normal tailor, an Italian guy who knows and loves everything about suits. He tells me that fabric is bunching below the collar and that it can be fixed be reattaching the collar at a slightly lower point. I came in today to pick up the suit to discover that the shoulder seam is now a half inch narrower and the shoulders pinch like crazy. The entire shoulder area of the suit now feels tighter, and it just looks like garbage. Is this typically a reversible alteration? I'm frustrated because I specifically asked him twice whether this was going to affect the fit in the shoulders and both times he assured me that it would not.
