    On a covert coat I have the single vent at the back overlaps slightly so that in sticks out more to one side and doesn't sit flat. This is unsightly and therefore I wonder if it is possible to sew the vent up and whether this is a common problem?

    Is there an inherent reason single vents are prone to this? On my heavier weight coats this is not an issue I've encounter so I think the lighter weight of the covert is partly the issue as the vent sticks out.
