Default ripped jacket. now what?

so i ripped my new jacket today when it. got snagged on a post. i have a two inch clean cut on the shoulder. the fabric seemed sort of thin from the beginning, but now i'm in deep sh*t. if i carefully folded over the seem and used a glue gun to taper it together would it hold permanently? any other suggestions?

take it to a seamstress or tailor. Have someone do it right so it won't look worse.

If you can't get it fixed before next time, duct tape is your friend

If it's on a seam take it to a seamstress. If you don't want to do that buy some of this stuff

QUICK GRIP Adhesive Product Details

I've used this and another adhesive before on many rips. I just put a peice of duct tape on the underside to seal it and hold the rip together and this on the top. It's not pretty but snowboarding isn't a fucking fashion show.
