I posted this on the old forum and by request I'm posting it again. I have a Willis & Geiger A-1 that was given to me as a gift. It was supposedly worn in the mini series "War and Remembrance" by a PT Boat skipper. It's a size 44 and made of Capeskin. I wear a 46 and it was too small for me, so I thought I'd try stretching it to fit me. I started by hanging it in the shower and spraying it down with hot water. Then I pulled and stretched in every direction, then stuffed it with a comforter and left it for several days to dry. After it dried I took the comforter out and tried it on. It fit perfectly! Before Stuffed with a comforter while drying After. Perfect fit!
