jacket for someone tall and skinny.

I am 6"2" 145-150 pounds and not having any luck finding a jacket that will fit me.

Its either the sleeves are to short and the rest is nice and tight in a medium or sleeves are perfect and the rest is to loose for me to feel safe in a large.

Any recommendations. Preferably textile

Alpinestars used to offer their jackets in a 'long' version. They have a pretty slender cut to begin with. I am almost 6'1", 145 lbs and wear a 38L jacket.

Tourmaster (and possibly Cortech sub-brand) have tall sizes. I'd tell you my size and dimensions, but it'd do no good because every model they make that I've tried seemed to be sized differently.

Firstgrear also makes tall sizes in some jackets.

Unfortunately Americans are fat so it's getting harder to find garments that fit the tall and lean

I'm 6'1" and 165lbs. When I was a heavier at 200lbs plus I had no problem finding jackets that fit me. Since I dropped so much weight the problem I ran into was finding jackets with the arms being long enough, and still fit me snug. Only brand I've been able to find that worked for me was Dainese.
