How do I get the straight-line drape on trousers?  I ask because I wear all of my pants too tight and too low.  I am considering a made to measure suit and  I want to make sure a have a ballpark idea of how pants should fit so I can correct any glaring mistakes while being measured.  How much room should i have around the hips, thighs, knees?

Thanks, Despos.  I will post some pictures in a t-shirt later today for a more accurate posture assessment.   When I unbutton the jacket it seems to swing backward for some reason. The opposite when I button it up. Its weird.
Whats up guys?   I want to thank everyone who modeled their suits and especially thank the tailors.  This thread taught me so much and is the most valuable source of information i found on suiting across the internet.    I heard the word "silhouette" thrown around here and there but i never quite grasped what it meant until i saw this gentleman's jacket:   Now I understand the silhouette, the lines, the balance and drape of a suit.  I want a jacket that...
