Begging the obvious, but it's just a particular style.  It's not meant 
to close in front--think of things like some coats on 18th c. gentlemen, 
or the reoccuring fashion in my lifetime, certainly, to wear a coat or 
jacket "open."
--sue, who got into late-16th c. costuming so she had something to put 
her embroidery *on*! <g>
