"How ___ is made" videos tend to be all technical and science-minded (read: not our jam). But watching a Chanel jacket come to life before our very eyes? Totally our jam.

Fashionologie has a captivating behind-the-scenes video, taking you into the Chanel atelier and right onto the cutting table. The seamstresses carefully cut the patterns and sew the pieces of the iconic tweed, collar-less jacket themselves, finishing it off with a Chanel label on the collar.

With all the manpower that goes into it, you realize why these coveted jackets are so pricey -- and thus why they're worn most often by celebrities, socialites, royals and the occasional stylist (we're looking at y'all, Caroline Seiber and Rachel Zoe).

Check out our slideshow of the famous Chanel jacket in all its iterations -- black and pastel, cropped and long, embellished and spare -- and bliss out with Fashionologie's enthralling Chanel video.
