A vent is an open slit in the back of a suit jacket, sport coat or skirt that allows freedom of movement, especially when bending or sitting. When a skirt or jacket is constructed with no vent, it creates a smoother appearance. However, this can be at the expense of mobility. Men who wear suits and sport coats generally have a preference for side vents, a center vent or no-vent style.
