(minimal @ 11 Oct. 2004, 06:11) i'm getting a new suit (yay.), somewhere between off-the-rack and made-to-measure. i was either going to go 2-button 2 vent or 3-button no vent. i am tall (6'4") and lanky. the saleperson suggested 3-button 2vent. but for some reason this combination doesn't seem to "go" in my brain. maybe i've never heard of it, or ever noticed it  it, and so i'm not sure yet if i like the look or not. so, in short, if anyone has something to add here, feel free to say something about the sartorial implications. thanks in advance.
Bravo, my good man.  I think the 3 button with side vents will suit nicely.  It's a good combination, and I have it on one of my bespoke suits. In agreement with replies above.  I wouldn't get a 3 button that rolled to the top button, however.
Just noticed that one of my RTW tweed jackets has 3 button and side vents.
