Video Description
In this video I document the process of taking 3 inches (7.6 cm) of fabric out of the chest are via the side seams of an Austin Reed for Dillard's wool half canvass sport coat. This is my first attempt at altering a sport coat. I got the majority of the information to do this from a young man Louis Geramita who runs a YouTube channel called "The Aspiring Gent". He's pretty amazing so check his channel out! Here's the specific video:
