I did wonder about the vents. I am aware that ventless is more traditional.
Wouldn't a ventless jacket need to be cut looser than one with vents to still be comfortable?
Especially on someone that isn't particularly slim like me. I am just imagining it being bulbous around my seat, or else baggy all round.
That's my main concern.
Re pleats: that was more of an oversight. I should probably change the order to flat fronts and add a bit more thigh room.
