I think an inch is doable but it may not be worth the costs to alter it. The ludlow jacket is shorter than traditional jackets so the 36r may be alright. I have the other measurements for the jackets let me know if you need them.
looks like i'm goin to the liquor store today. 29.5 might not be too bad for me. thanks, i pm'd you for the measurements.

dunno about jcrew in particular, but free alterations usually only includes inseam and maybe sleeve length. i think shortening a jacket requires taking the whole thing apart, altering each piece, and putting it back together.
