pants size European-Large?

I was looking at bike tights on ebay. One company was selling a pair I liked
which were quoted as a size of European Large. Does anyone know how that converts to
US sizes. I am a medium 32 waist in US. A US large is too big for me. If anyone knows
Thanks.

Giordana has a sizing chart - link attacked.

I find that Giordana sizes run small - so a US med is a large.
Not sure if this is what your looking for.

There is no consistency is sizing so buy from a place you can make returns until you find a brand that works for you.

If you know the brand you may be able to find a brand specific size chart. Also, I've seen Internet retailers offer their own size adjustments...

I wrote the seller and they never replied-so I will not buy them.
Thanks for the input..

I am a 32/34 waist- depends on how Hungry I was and how much PIE. I taken a European Medium if that helps. (Whether it was a large helping or not)
