Yeossal 31 would measure 31" and a Spier & Mackay 32 would measure 33.5". So keep that in mind. If you are looking at the cotton I would say lean on the larger side and tailor them down vs letting them out. I had to let my first pair out an inch in the waist because of how TTS they run, and it left marks in the cloth.I was going to get the tobacco colour for my first try at these MTO trousers, but that brown looks beautiful. I've been trying to figure out sizing. I normally wear a 32 in Spier & Mackay, but these days I find myself pulling the side tabs on my S&M trousers more, so contemplating dropping to a 31 at Yeossal. The no returns makes it tricky, but I guess I can always adjust the size slightly at my tailor.
Then after your first pair Yeossal should just be able to adjust the pattern based on what your tailor did. For me that meant that waist adjustment as well as the final inseam (which they nailed and in turn saved me a bunch on local alterations)
For reference I wear a 34 Contemporary and take in the waist like 1.5", I do this for the leg room. In the Yeossal I take a 33 and let the waist out 1". In comparison the 33 Yeossal still has more room through the thigh and knee.
