I think I am around 7'2" or 7'3". For my approval photos I put green tape on the wall and marked every foot as seen below:

Hey bud your suit needs a hair cut. If you have a sallys beauty supply near buy you can buy something called a razor comb. You will hack into the suit randomly if you will cutting and thinning the hair. its a pretty scarey thing to do, but makes a major difference. If you have a stylist that you know and trust, have them do it while you are wearing the suit. It will look like you lost half the suit if done right. Super scarey I know, but as Angie has told me countless times to be a wookiee you need wookiee sized balls.

Trimming the suit is definitely scary, but necessary. I used thinning sheers and a brush.

Duck has a nice video explaining it all:
