If the jacket does not, seek out fatter people with whom to hang out.
I believe poor-fitting side vents are better than poor-fitting centre vents, which will open to expose the buttocks.
Seems like which provides the best slimming effect is going to depend on your build (and I'm not just talking weight, but bone structure, musculature, etc.). I find side vents most flattering for myself, but I know other people who look better in center vents.
I have bespoke jackets each way that are cut on the same exact pattern. The shape is identical, so I don't see how you could argue one is more slimming. In either case the vents stay shut if I'm not moving, so the only point for debate would be what happens to the vents when the wearer sits, bends, or walks; that's probably a unique variable.
I too have bespoke jackets each way ... and the cuts are the same. To be honest ... I have jackets each way cut from the same cloth in the same colorway. When worn the shapes are very similar ... but NOT identical ... and yes, the vent/vents stay closed on each. There IS a difference in my opinion. On my build ... the center vent is more slimming.* But I'm slim enough ... and have a preference for the side vents.
