I believe it's possible, but personally, I wouldn't bother. I'd rather wear what I bought, in its original form: 'in' or 'out,' of fashion.

Not if there's a cut buttonhole.

It's not so hard to do. You have to worry a bit about the placement of the lapel buttonhole, however. You don't want it to end up too close to the edge after the alteration.

That's a major change, aesthetically, so it might throw off the balance of a lot of other things. You're better off getting a different jacket.
