That is why the side vent came after the center as it was an improvement to the design.
Anyway, outside of the above reasons most people will go with what is the norm in "their" social circles not necessarily what is more functional. Remember there is a different between style, fashion, and functionality.
Well I never say one is better than the other, I am only saying the premise that 'side vents must be better than center vent' is wrong.
I am submtting that when centre vents are done right, it will be just as good as side vents with its functionality and anesthetic.
I noted your argument but I don't think it holds any water. In particular to your social limb, I have the following reply 1) centre vents are very normal in a society we live in and 2) Some garments do looks more correct and authentic with crooked/centre vents.
