    I have two jackets from the days before I knew what to look for when being fit for a jacket, where the side vents gape. I have pretty wide hips from both bone structure and, unfortunately, extra adipose tissue. Is there anything an alterations tailor can do to remedy this issue or at least reduce its effect? Regards, HS.

    I think the solution lies more in scissor kicks than scissors.

    I agree, but even if I were to lose much of the fat in my ass, it's probably still going to be too close for comfort for well fitting side vents. I have incredibly wide hips, wide by standards even for women.

    HS, I'm with you on this one. The only solution I've found so far is double vents and a good sense of humor. I'll be trying one of [email protected]'s VNese tailors and have him pay special attention to the hips.
