I just got a ton of sport coats and suit coats tailored, and on most of them the side vents do not flare, but they do separate slightly so the vent opens a bit. Is this okay, or does it mean they're ill fitting? The coats were taken in a bit and look fine from the front, but I have noticed a separation in the vents. Any thoughts on this? Is it just the flare that's frowned upon, or is it inappropriate for the vents to separate as well?

Thanks!

It's definitely innalrklrkate.

But the well-known sartorial phenomenon of innalrklrkatism aside, the vents should not flare or splay open. Still, if you post some photos of yourself wearing the jackets in question, we'll be able to tell you if the problem is negligible or not.

Innalrklrkate? My dialect is a little rusty but that's Cardassian, is it not?

While it depends upon what you mean by open, in general, they shouldn't be. But if there's too much waist suppression (I.e., a fashionable fit.) they pretty much have to be.
