Jackets with different lengths on each sleeve

Is it acceptable to get jacket sleeves altered with different length sleeves on each arm so as to show the same amount of cuff? My right arm is about 1 inch longer than my left.

It is not only acceptable but the proper way to do it.

The only time there might be difficulties is a checked jacket (particular a very big plaid) when you will see from the horizontal lines that your longer arm does show another section of the check.

As a principle yes, any bespoke garment reflects the actual; body not an idealised version.
