As Pliny says, it depends on the tailor. That said, based on personal experience,1) 3.20 or 3.30 m should be plenty for 2-piece suit, even for a tall 6.5 person.2) 2 m should be enough for a jacket, even for a tall person.

Comparing the three herringbones I have from Smith, Scabal and Dugdale in the 12-13 oz. range, I would say the Scabal and Smith are more densely woven.
