HELP DB Suit Single Vent

Hi all,

I just ventured into the world on men’s suits andI’m in the process of having a MTM DB suit made. I got the jacket back and it only has a single vent. While I love the jacket in general and during today’s alterations my tailor promised I would be pleased with the end result I’m freaking out because all forums I’ve read say that a DB suit jacket should never be single vented.
Again, the tailor says it’ll be fine as he’s bringing out the seat a bit while bringing in the drape of the chest and tapering the waste but I feel like men who know style would secretly snicker at me for being the only man in the world dumb enough to own a DB jacket with a center vent ??‍♂️
