Is it possible to put a vent on a jacket w/no vent?

I just got a suit w/ no vent. However, I prefer a jacket w/ vent. I don't know if the tailor can make a vent out of it. If so, has anyone ever tried it?

No. It is not possible.* You can go the other way, however.

*well, techincally it might be if the jacket were too big, and in the process of taking in the back, the tailor used the extra material to fashion a vent. But still, not really something you want to do.

No, it can't be done later on.

A vent needs an extension of about 2 1/2"; you have to decide in the cutting stage, if you want single or double vent or no vent at all.
