3,5 m for a 2-piece suit in 45 wide fabric ... again less necessary in 60 wide   1,5 m for trousers in 45 wide fabric ... less material is needed in 60 wide fabric
Well, since we're from SF -- we like to relax the rules. Seeing you're in DC, you can play the "from outside the beltway" card if you want ;)   Comfort exudes confidence, and trumps crankiness especially during hours outside the office.
If you already have a solid navy or beige, why not add variation with a beige-colored checked pattern? IDK about pocket square, which seems to add formality to a sport casual look.

They repel moths and absorb moisture. They don't stretch out your suit. Dried lavender leaves sealed in pouches and kept in pockets also repel moths. Regularly cleaning and vacuuming your closet is the best...
