Tailoring Jeans

I'm looking into getting my jeans tailored. I bought them a while ago but have recently changed my dress style. I used to wear baggy clothing, but as I've gotten older, I've noticed baggy doesn't work well for me. I'm hoping to have a tailor alter the style of my jeans. They are currently Straight and Relaxed, I'd like to have them altered to a more suitable Slim fit style.
The waist is sized correctly as well as the inseam is a smidgen too long but manageable.

With this said, how should I go about conveying this to a tailor?
Is there anything specific I need to mention or make known?
Roughly how much should I expect to pay per pair of jeans to have this done (S. Florida, USA)?
As the jeans are in great condition (lightly worn), I'd rather not buy new if I don't have to, especially if the material is quite comfortable.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Unless the jeans are super rare designer stuff that you want to keep for sentimental reason, just buy another pair for now, baggy jeans style may be coming back anyway.

You see, jeans are not the easiest material to work with and they usually require a heavier duty machine to sew so not all tailor will have it. Even if they do, they may end up having to charge quite a bit more for the extra effort and time, which may end up more than the old jeans are worth.

Btw, this is a Canadian site, asking how much service is in S. Florida, USA is odd.

Go to the mall and find a pair that fits well. Buy it. Take your new pair and your old jeans to the tailor. Ask them to tailor the old jeans to the new pair.
