Whew! For a second there, I thought we were going to have to cut vents into my DJ. Even though I don't have large hips (right, Despos?) I'm happy that we went with the ventless option.Have gone full circle regarding vents. When I began in this business it was a given to have no vents in tuxedos and dinner jackets. Then I would suggest to clients that if all their suits had side vents just stick with that for your tuxedo. It isn't as visual a choice as SB vs DB or lapel style. Would probably go unnoticed to anyone you meet.
Over the last few years more clients have requested no vent and have to say it makes the jacket more elegant. My opinion. Another distinction to semi formal attire from the suit or jacket worn everyday.
No vent has been the standard for clients with larger hips. It's a logical choice to minimize the hip. Clients with that body type have preferred no vents. First time to ever hear a differing opinion on that one.
