The former refers to a stylistic aspect where there is more cloth of varying degrees at the armscye, chest and back. There are several current bespoke makers who do this. Examples include Anderson & Sheppard and Rubinacci. You are looking at a bespoke Rubinacci suit above.
The latter is a specific style of tailoring, encompassing the entire look of jacket and trousers, that makes use of item one but also has other important and distinctive features. Frederick Scholte is the person most closely associated in history with this style. While it is not produced by anyone today except as costume, it influences tailoring that both incorporates drape and also tailoring that does not.
