English term or phrase: center vent
I am stuck on the meaning of center vent for a coat
here is the link www.burberryusaonline.com/sm-trench-coat--pi-2127641.html

Once you are there if you click on additional product information you will see center vent.

Thank you for your help

Both of these references are on the same web page. One of them has added "centrale" to the phrase but it is the same thing: the slit in the center back hem of a coat that is added to make walking and sitting easier.
