I was interested in the jacket before buying a Dainese Vintage Pelle. I am 5'11'' and about 165 and a size 42 fit me decently well. My gf said it looked kinda boxy and unflattering on me compared to my Alpinestars jacket I also have, which is a size 40 US (50 EURO)... so my suggestion is to go a size up from what you're used to wearing. At least that was the case with me. It definitely looks better on certain body types, and I was not one of them. Even though my dealer was willing to sell it to me for $350, I just couldn't justify buying it. You may want to search for reviews on the jacket, because I've read about zippers breaking, etc. I know they always were willing to swap it out at a dealer under the warranty, but if you're 3 hours away from yours... so I don't see that as a viable option if it does happen to break on you. If they do need to replace it, they probably won't have the same jacket in stock, which is a neat looking jacket, so it's a tough call. Good luck though!
