I'd actually be prepared to drop the cash for MTM knitwear, as cashmere costs so much anyway. And a well-made blue or grey sweater is pretty well timeless. But, I'm not sure such thing exists...
I talked to one shop, and they can alter overlocked side seams or take them in by reknitting the seam. They are also able to remove cuffs and shorten sleeves, or do the same with the hem. The price depends on the fineness of the knit for the reknitting, and I think it is a relatively set price for re-overlocking the side seams and/or sleeves.
