Depending on the cut of the jean you may need to take up the rise too(crotch) and that can get expensive. If there is wear to the jean it wont look right whatever you do. I would just buy the 34 and boil them and put them in a hot dryer and find a favorite belt.

Do you mean the waist width? Cause that is virtually impossible.. Denim is very heavy and the thread usually contrasts, so other than a hem, it is really hard to tailor, especially for a man. Women can do a few tucks or darts at the waist, but it can look awkward, as you see a seam at the waist. The whole waist can't be removed like pants, because you can't redo the grommet. Whew!

If you attempt to reduce the waist, the jeans probably won't look "cool" anymore. Find another pair! Sorry!

Yes it CAN be fixed... check out Restoration & Alterations
BTW, I suppose you should live near the nyc area to use them! ;-)

That can entail reworking the seat. I imagine that would be somewhat of a hassle.
