Jacket to fit me?

I'm 6'2-6'3 and 155 lbs. Anybody else have trouble finding a jacket that fits well. Also anybody of similar size have any luck with any particular jacket?

I have been and tried on a few. But also remember that i live in Anahuac. I have a joe rocket textile medium but its a little bit too big in the chest and a little short in arm length. What i have found is the jackets that fit in the chest are WAY to small in arm length. And the jackets that fit in arm length are WAY to big in the chest.

+1 I know it's a long drive but I believe Patrick (the owner) will guarantee fit. He did when he ordered a helmet and on a different occasion a set of leathers for me. BTW I live in Pearland so its like 45 miles one way and I still go see Patrick.
The only other option may be to have an off the rack jacket tailored to fit. Unfortunately for you one of the best places in town that does that is right by Motorcycles Unlimited.

I'm 6' 165 and have long arms, I'm wearing a joe rocket L. The arms are perfect. The chest is a little big. One of these days I will have one custom ordered to fit me.
