I received my jacket a few minutes ago and what can I say...

I'm totally flashed, my dream came true. Absolutely perfect look and fit.

So many thanks to you guys from Simmons Bilt, especially to you for your friendly and patiently contact and to Moira for the great job.

A pic will follow after I'm back from my business trip to China.
