Although this jacket seems to suffer from various balance issues as mentioned by the posters, if a fix can be correctly diagnosed for the sake of an improved pattern for future jackets, I am more than happy to chalk this jacket up to a learning experience.
The fabric by the way is JJ Minnis Airborne, which was purchased at a discount and is feather-light at 6.5-7 ounces. I think it has 1% cashmere in it and feels very nice. None of my other jackets from this tailor has rippling, so I think the lightness of the fabric may be the culprit.
Here are a couple pics with the vent lifted up, which may sway or solidify your previous diagnoses:
The part of the sidebody underneath the vent seems to float away from the buttocks instead of laying flat. I wonder if that is an indication of the primary reason for the vents opening...
Thank you again for any insight you can provide on adjusting this pattern.

It's still fun for us to diagnose problems on other tailors' work, just as an academic exercise, even if it is a bit like doing an autopsy sometimes.
Itís fun when we do even worst... its easy to despise someoneís work but some day it comes back, nobody is perfect!
But still to remediate this fault is very difficult. You have to complete dismantle the coat and you need big inlays. So forget it, just loose the waist suppression that might help something...

Similar to the below pic (not mine), a recently commissioned jacket has kicking vents.
The tailor has suggested that it may be because the jacket requires a longer back, but I think that the problem may emanate from the side(s) of the jacket, either tugging forward or backward.
What are the most common reasons for kicking vents? What's the most likely culprit if one vent kicks consistently while the other one stays put?
Thanks in advance.
the seat measurement is too small that is why usually the top vent doesn't line up vertically with the one underneath
there are some other modifications that you could as well, like pinching the length of the seam where the vent is located
to make go forward a little , but ultimately the seat needs to be enlarged.
