I think there is a co-relation between both height and breadth- and the suit being asked for.
You need more fabric for a DB jacket in larger chest sizes. I think it also matters if the jacket is cut with or without a side panel, I know that most jacket are nowadays and whether the client is interested in narrow, low rise trousers or higher waisted, pleated ones.
It would help to start with a chart that indicates the parameters, say SB jacket, modern cut flat fronted trousers, plain double width fabric. Then DB jacket, then three piece SB and so on.
I certainly am willing to share the information I have, if it is of any use. For example, I just cut a set of tails for a 44 chest , 6' 4" tall and trousers 36"waist - high waisted, double forward pleats-3.75m in fabric 150cm wide. I just don't know if anyone will find this particular info useful or not.
