If you could get the pant tapered a bit that might take out some of the bagginess in the front you are complaining of, but that might be a bit more expensive of a fit and probably not worth it for an interview suit.
I wouldn't mind spending a few extra bucks to get the bagginess removed, as the suit was pretty expensive, and tacking 5-10% onto the cost for a better fit seems reasonable to me. I'll also be wearing it to work this summer at a merchant bank in New York, so I'd like for it to fit right.
The only problem that I have is that I have large calves, so I'd most likely need to get the pants tapered starting at or below the calves. Is this normal, or would it seem like an odd request to a tailor?
I have an old suit, and I tried to have the suit trousers tapered beneath the calves, but the pleat (? sorry, I'm not sure about the terminology here, I'm talking about the line that runs down the front of the pants) became bowed in instead of going straight down like they currently are. As a result, my trousers were ruined, and the pants look all funny now.

BTW, who cut your hair?
Sorry, I missed this earlier. I just got it cut at some random salon in the city that I'm residing in this month. Why do you ask?
