So I bought a large Ducati Monster textile jacket; I love it's clean lines, simple shape and (lack thereof) of busy designs and logos. It doesn't look like a fireman's jacket (like a lot of motorcycle textile jackets do), but it rides up above my waistline when I lean over to ride.

I am 6'1, and weight 200lbs. I am by no means fat whatsoever, and wear a size 34wasit /32 inseam pants. I have a medium build. Does anyone have any recommendations as for a better, sharp-looking textile jacket that's simple,and maybe dips down in the back without looking bulky? I want something that looksslick, fashionable without being plastered in logos.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,
Daniel

i reckon that any jacket unless designed around sport bikes will ride up considerably when you lean over!
I feel the cold around my lower back on cooler rides

I've got a long torso and have the same problem. Dainese has an extender belt thingy that I use on both of my Dainese jackets. They zip into any jacket that will zip to pants. One of my textile jackets doesn't have a zipper but I just had my tailor sew it on. Works great.

Do a search for Ducati Summer Tech jacket. The come all blacked out or with a red stripe. I have the black with red. I am 6'1" and 190lbs. You will need the XXL, they run very very small. I have the XXL = US jacket size 42-44.

You need a Large Tall.

First Gear and a few others make Tall sizes.
