adding a vent or vents to a jacket?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i just received a couple of custom made suits from a hong kong tailor. the suits came out great but they don't have vents. i hate non-vented jackets. can i take these to a tailor to get double or single vents??

Unfortunately, no - for the vents to overlap properly, there needs to be extra material factored in, which your ventless jacket will not have.

Hope that made sense (if not, sorry - it's Monday)

Also - that's a pretty big mistake for the tailor to make. If you can, I'd send them back and ask for what you ordered.

If you told him to make you vents and he messed up, send them back to have the jackets remade for free. If you forgot to tell him send them back and have them remade, for full cost. Or else enjoy your new orphaned pants.

i told him to make double vents. if he doesn't offer to send new jackets i will probably keep the suits. i have an odd body frame and he really nailed the fit. it looks like nonvents are somewhat of a classic look (based on my googling). i can live with that.

i really don't like the look of a non-vented jacket. not only dose it bunch up awkwardly when sitting down, it also looks less "natural" to my eye. you should post pictures =]

sounds pretty shoddy to me, i would def send them back. imo, non-vented suits are reserved for tuxedos, but i really don't like the look at all. reminds me of a navy prada tuxedo i once coveted, but alas, no vents, so i had to let it go...

i found this pertinent thread from not too long ago: http://styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=37055

that thread was helpful. best case scenario, i would still prefer that the tailor send me new jackets with vents. i think i fit the profile of someone who would look good in a ventless (tall and thin), but i just have a personal preference for double vents.

why did you order more than one suit ? never do that until you get the fit down pat, then you can order multiples.
