Your tailor will or should mark the seat, or will automatically taper it in.It disagree, though, that the seat is more difficult than the waist. You can let out a seat slightly without touching the waist, but cannot let the waist out without doing a bit of work to undo the waistband. I say this with experience as I do my own alterations.That being said, if you take in the waist/seat, then let it out after wearing, you may see marks/fading/wear on the fabric that isn't...
Wearing size M.
I wear a 12 and they seem to fit me pretty well even after cold wash/lay flat to dry.I'm about the same - 6'3" 190lb and ~41L (+/-1 depending on brand/cut)Length is not a problem for me.Yes, there is a little to give back there.

Convert to shorts!
You can easily remove the darts from your shirt. Just get it and use your seam ripper.

I'd recommend ordering at the same time to ensure that your fabrics are from the same dye lot. Otherwise, you risk having a trouser and a jacket that are just slightly off and will not match. While it's not common, it can be a concern.
As I do my own trouser hemming, you don't need 3x the length of fabric. I do the same inseam, so let's use 34 as an example. For a 2" cuff, you want 34" + 2" (inside of cuff) + 2" (outside/visible fabric of cuff) + 1" or less to finish the hem. Total of 39" or less max. I think that Brooks Brothers trousers ship with a 39" inseam (unfinished) and that's enough to do a 2" cuff with a 34" inseam. In fact my left leg is approx 1/4" to 3/8" longer (or I have a high hip),...
