Cost of 1 m shirt material = Rs. 50

Cost of 1 m trouser material = Rs. 90

Now after 12% Profit, Selling Price of 1 m shirt material = 50 + 12% of 50  = 50 + 6

=  Rs. 56

And after 10% Profit, Selling Price of 1 m shirt material = 90 + 10% of 90 = 90 + 9

= Rs. 99

It is given that if he buys 2 m of shirt material then he buys 3 m of shirt material.

Let that he buys 2x m of shirt material then he will buy 3x m of trouser material.

Total Selling Price = 56 x 3x + 99 x 2x = 168x + 198x = Rs. 366x

It is given that the total selling price = 36600

Therefore,

366 x = 36600

x = 100

So the trouser material he buys = 2x

= 2 x 100

= 200 m
Therefore, the trouser material is 200 m.
