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?

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.
