 Short answer: probably not. Long answer: yes but only if your tailor is a wizard. They'd have to remove the wrist or take it up from the shoulder, either of which might adversely impact the waxed finish. It would be a very tough operation. I use Stanton Street Tailors, a top NYC outfit, and this is probably the kind of job Pablo, the boss, would turn down because it's too much of a headache.
 Thanks!  Me too! Can't wait to pick it up later this week. Curious to see Also @TweedyProf IIRC decided a month or so ago against adding darts to the Doyle. I checked and my existing chore jacket from Woolrich Woolen Mills has back darts (came with them) and it makes it wear strangely. Far too restrictive even though it "fits."

It won't be perfect, and stitching might show on light-colored cotton Walts, but I've had success doing this in the past. I believe Mike has as well. I let out all my linen Walts, for instance. The Walt fits me fine, but I like the extra room in a linen pant.
Up for sale is a beautiful Polo Ralph Lauren suit, made in Italy by Corneliani in a moderate weight textured wool in a charcoal shadow glen plaid with a blue windowpane. This suit is gorgeous, and I'm only selling it because it just doesn't fit me in the shoulders. I've worn it four to five times, and it's in excellent condition with only slight signs of wear. The suit is fully canvassed and lined, 3-roll-2, with cut that tows the line between trim and classic. The pants...
 You sound like an EPNY medium to me.
