Tuxedo sleeves should fall right around the middle of the wrist bone. You should leave 1/2 inch of the shirt sleeve showing past the tuxedo jacket.
We can rip the seams from the cuff and mark the new measurement with pins, or with fabric chalk. We can also measure the length of the sleeves again before sewing the original seams. This ensures that the sleeves are even on both sides.
Iron the seam down, and then hand-stitch or use the sewing machine to secure the new seams. Fit the jacket again once the seams have been sewn down but before trimming any seams. It’s essential to make sure the fit is right before trimming seams. Have the wearer try on the jacket with the shirt that will be worn, which can make you see the full effect.
TUXEDO SUIT ALTERATION
We want to specially-make you a garment to make you stand out in any setting. We have tailors that have experience and are professionals, come to us instead of an untrusted, discount “tailor”.
TUXEDO SUIT ALTERATION: The jacket might be longer than you want, but we can shorten that jacket. If the shoulder of that jacket is a little bit big, we can fix it to make it your size. Most of the time, the sleeves might be extended when the sleeves are long.

Take the measurements for the hem of the jacket. A tuxedo jacket should cover the backside. If the coat is too long, use pins or fabric chalk to mark where the new hem will need to be. Measure carefully to ensure an even measurement around the back. Rip any seams in the back hem, and iron down the new hem.
Use a sewing machine (or hand-stitch, if you prefer) to secure the original hem. Fit the jacket again to make sure the hem is even, and the jacket falls in the right place. Trim all seams up to 1/4 inch once you are comfortable. This makes sure that the fit is exactly as it should be.
