Your thoughts on the Ventess Tux... - Page 2

post #16 of 62
Both of my tux are ventless, I will never put my hands in the pocket at dinner and always button, even when dancing.

The sleekness of ventless works the best with tux.

When I see vented tux, I see vulgarity

Hat Summer North America:
Boater north of Mason-Dixon line, Budwiser hand-knit south, Southwest: large Pancho Villa sombrero, Texas and Brooklyn: Small-brimmed fedora with "Jesus Posse" embroidered on the side.

Winter: Collander.


Seriously: I do boater in the summer, and a flat Cassock or Karakul in the winter.

I figured I could always have them closed if they annoyed me but I couldn't do the revese. So far they have not annoyed me.

And, to Vox's dictum, my DJ is DB. Then again, my previous one was also DB and ventless and it never felt uncomfortable.

I am only stating my personal preference.

I will say that the notion of a ventless bespoke jacket looking "sleeker" when standing can only come with the assumption that the vents aren't done well. Otherwise, I don't see how one could tell the difference unless the dude was in full twirl or heading to the floor at the yell of "Gator!"

I am not sure that I like it, but this certainly seems the traditional view.

I seem to remember Connery's DJ in the early casino scene in'Dr. No' looking less than flattering with two short side vents flapping at his arse. Pretty sure a ventless would have been more flattering to him. Maybe the success of vents are largely dependent not only on how well they are made, but on the shape of the behind the jacket is covering?

My dinner clothes are all ventless. Side vents are OK. The bigger issue is notch lapels on dinner clothes. Notch is for daytime clothes and the office. A notch lapel on formalwear is an oxymoron.

Also vote for ventless......

I remember as a very young person admiring a friend of my father's suit, double vented.

 

His reply has always stuck with me: "Tuxedo style, the ladies love it!"

 

That being said, the one I own is ventless.

Some day, I would love to live on your tiny planet, where all things are minaturized.

If we are talking about a bespoke jacket, one basic job of your hired crew is to make sure that vents hang closed and round the hip.
