Barbour ashby shortening

I have a Barbour ashby jacket in the smallest size available and it's still too long (I am 5'6" and it almost looks like a topcoat). I was wondering if it was possible to have it shortened by about 2-2.5 inches in length and possibly move the patch pockets up as well. I drew on a picture on their site to illustrate what I'm going for:


What are your thoughts? Is this a reasonable task for a tailor to do?

Good idea, to have the factory do it.

My experience with waxed cotton has been that removing a patch on a bag left the newly-exposed area a different, darker shade, which evened out in time. The holes where stitches were removed still show: that might happen with your pockets, too. I’d talk with the factory about what to expect before sending it off.
