Should be a simple operation for a good alterations tailor. I bought a BB walking coat last year and they altered the sleeves for me with no trouble.

The only problem . . .

. . . might be if there's a cuff belt or button tab to close up the sleeve, depending on how much one intends to shorten. Moving those would definitely leave holes, or at least marks, which would be very difficult to minimize in the type of heavy fabrics involved. Well, maybe not so much for a pea, which is rougher. At any rate, that would add to the cost if it were necessary.

Shortening is not so much a problem otherwise as lengthening. Even if the coat were not previously worn, the cuff fold is very likely to leave its mark in a line around the sleeve where it was formerly located. Can be hard to erase.
