How the heck were you able to take in chest pannel.??
I went by my tailor today and asked him how he was able to take in the chest. Here's what he said: when he took off the arms of the jacket to do the shortening of the sleeves, he took the front of the jacket in at the sides under the arms. This, in effect, took in the chest somewhat. So I guess he really didn't do anything with the chest per se, but the effect was the same. The finished suit jacket looks perfect.
