Americans, do you prefer single or double vent?

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
I know that the double vent suit cut is more versatile but I am surprised that most people in my work place sport single vent (American). What the dilly yo?

Double.

And that is for all dress and formal jackets and overcoats.

Why is double more versatile?

I'm new at this but I read an article somewhere from some dude named Alan Flusser who said that the double vented cut allows your suit to drape better in various stance/motions compared to single vent or no vents.

Everyone likes double these days. There's probably going to be some sort of backlash soon.

I doubt most people even know what the 'vent' is.

I like both, I usually base my decision on the fabric/cut of the suit in question.

Double looks better on me after alterations.

I have single-vent, double-vent and ventless suits and jackets. I prefer double vent. I think most individuals in the forum culture, aside from the diehard "trads," do prefer double-vent. Most American RTW is single vent. As somebody else remarked, most American consumers probably don't give the matter too much thought.

Since Americans carry guns more than most other people, single-vent is better for concealment...or so I have been told by Jerry Ahern, who has been a holster designer and has written often about concealed carry.

I prefer double vented. If I found a jacket I really liked that was single vented, I would still get it.

That's beautiful!

I find double vents to be much more functional.
