Put your suit on. Go to a hat store. Try some on. You'll find an individual hat that works.
That length sounds about right. As for the "eyeball and chalk", that's what all tailors do. It's like carpenters making a quck mark with a pencil before cutting. The issue is not so much the method, as whether the tailor has a good eye. Sounds like you'll be fine.

Jacket looks a little short in the sleeves. Shirt and tie doen't seem to match the suit at all. I'm not sure what is appropriate with a linen suit, but they seem too dressy.
If you're going to a lounge, you should probably wear a leisure suit. Something in a nice velour.

Sold pending payment.
I worked in news for several years in the UK. All our Westminster (i.e. political) reporters wore suits. A blazer & khakis would be acceptable, but all this stuff about wearing ill fitting rags is poor advice. If you dress like a slob, the pols will treat you like one. I would suggest you show a little class.
Bought these from Ed Morel in his recent clearout, but decided they are not for me. Incotex. White cotton, flat front, 34 W, unhemmed leg, split waist, zip fly, 4 pockets. Fit is slim to normal. New (with tags cut to prevent return.) $55 shipped CONUS.
