    Hello everyone
    I have just bought a russian BEKESHA TULUP coat, also called a M1930 coat
    they are made of thick sheepskin with a nice standing collar.
    But being army issue the sizing was slightly off and its a little tight in the armpit / shoulder area.
    My question is, how can I strech the sheepskin without endangering the stitching on the back?
    Do I just wear it over a thick sweater and move my arms, or do I have to oil / wet it before?
    thanks again
