their "sale" price is their regular price...they're kinda like JAB in that their merch is always marked down from the "original" price. Their return policy is really good too - maybe I'll take a stab at this.

I really like the side vents, which I feel is pretty rare for tweed jackets - most of the ones I've seen are single vent.

As ever the photo does not reveal the true colour which is a darker more brown colour. It has a lovely soft texture.

Is single vent considered more acceptable on tweed? I seem to remember there being some advantage to a single vent when riding or shooting or something, and therefore single vent is more traditional on tweed jackets than it would be on city wear...is this true or am I making this up?

yeah, I don't know if this is right or not, but I assume there has to be some sort of reason, because I feel like at least 90% or all tweed jackets I see (more like 100% when looking at vintage tweed) have a single vent. It's really annoying for me because I don't like the way single vents fit me..for some reason they never seem to look right, so I've been looking for a side-vented tweed jacket with not much success yet. I may try that CT jacket I posted the link to earlier.

Double vents are always found on riding jackets. They were made so that the rider can have the flap move freely through jumps.

Traditionally hacking (i.e. riding) jackets typically have three buttons and deep single vent, as this falls better and covers the upper leg when mounted. Though there is sometimes a difference between show/event coats and daily riding coats, and foxhunting is different altogether, closer to a frock coat.
