What Jackets that come tigher/more fit than normal?

Im really tall, and really skinny. I went to try on some jackets and found:

1) If sleeves fit the length of my arms, than jacket is too baggy.
2) If the jacket fits perfectly around my body, the sleeves are too short.

I wanted to know if there are any specific brands that generally come tighter, or more "fit" than other jackets. I'm hoping the tighter jackets can fit me normally.

man....i have the same exact problem.

except if it fits my belly, the sleeves are too long...and if the sleeves fit, the rest of the jacket doesn't

go to Motorcycles Unlimited, and try on some of their jackets and stuff. Patrick and Suzanne are EXTREMELY knowledgeable on what fits and is quality stuff.

...Then hit up cyclegear, it's just north of Eximport. Go up 59 to bellaire, make a u-turn. it's right there. I have an Alpinestars jacket that I bought when I worked there (different location). I'm 6'1" 140 and I wear a 40 US (50 Euro) that I ordered in a "Long" version. If you wanted to meet up some time, you could check out the jacket, and Seth's Ninja250 that he has for sale. Let me know.

He wants an 08, silly
+1 on the 59S cycle gear. Wouldn't take 5 dollhairs to get there and home from the land less sugar.

Dainese are Italian design and tend to be more tailored and fitted than most.
http://www.dainese.com/eng/home.asp for ideas.
Availability shouldn't be an issue in the States I would have thought.

The reason he was asking me to check out his buddys bike was because I was debating earlier if I should get the 08, or if I should get the 1st gen model and wasn't quite sure then. Now, I'm stuck on the 08
