How long is this pea coat going to be?

Feel like it's hard to say since I don't know what the final design will look like. I get the impression that you're not doing a regular peacoat, but something closer to what Simon had made through Taub?
IMO, cuffs would throw this a little more towards the "tailored" side of things. I associate them with polo coats, Guard coats, etc. A plain sleeve would look more casual. Maybe a strap cuff could add some detailing if you felt plain was too boring, but I don't know if the design would look right depending on the other details.
Prob depends a little on how you plan to wear it. With a longer length and worn with tailored trousers, cuffs could be OK (without really knowing the rest of the design). Personally, I think something in this design would look better with jeans, textured sweaters, etc. In that case, I think plain cuffs would be better.
Bit of a side note, but I have a Buzz Rickson pea coat with a large collar like that, and while it looks cool flipped up in photos, it feels a bit costume-y in real life (to me anyway). If you think you'll want to wear the collar up, it might be good to get a smaller collar.
