Thanks! I have a medical reason for only owning slightly above the knee length coats wink.gif

I, as a man with a non-flat ass, favor the side vents, but I don't have a default objection to center. The sacks from BB and J Press are iconic and center-vented. Plus, y'all will give Lufty a heart attack with this line of thought.

My legendary physical conditioning insulates me from this unseemly phenomenon, I guess.

Besides the movement issues GDL points out, I think it's just personal taste on how it looks. I much prefer double vents generally. I just think it looks better. Thus, it is fact that it does. foo.gif

I have a brooks brothers corporate discount for today only and I'm picking up a suit. The problem is the only double vent suits they have are regent fit which have low armholes. The fitzgeralds fit better but are single vent. Are single vents not worth getting/in poor taste? Would I end up regretting the decision? Thanks!

Low armholes suck!

Yes, it's super good. I think SB is my favorite poster for this awesome consistency: the harmony is always there, regardless of the outfit.

And who makes the tie? It's something basic but the execution and finish is flawless.

Damn, fellas. Thanks. The square is Robert Talbott, and the tie is Barba.

Color combo suggested by GDL, if it's no good I blame him entirely.
