Regarding vents, ventless is the classic style, but double vents are now common enough that no one would regard it as a faux pas.
Thanks for the feedback. As far as style goes, this is what I prefer and its a completely subjective thing. I plan to wear a skinny black tie, not a bow-tie, but again, thats just my preference. Regarding the shoulders, I am a bit torn because every 38R I've tried is just too narrow in the shoulders and chest (I am a slim build, but I work out and have somewhat broad shoulders). 40R is always pretty close, maybe just a hair too big, and I think this is the case here. The real question is, can this jacket be tailored for an improved fit, or is it a non-starter?
