    I've just bought a made-to-measure 3-pce suit. The size of the double-vents is 10". Does anyone know how feasible it is to increase these to 11" vents?

    Thanks.

    typically, a vent overlays some fabric, so you'd have to find a tailor who can create a new overlay.

    I would think not (well, at least) unless you were taking the jacket in at the same time.

    I have a curiosity about the opposite: decreasing the vents, or eliminating them.
    Any thoughts?

    My tailor had no problem closing up a single vented jacket.
