Yep. I am about the same size as you, tallish and slim. I got the medium and it fits well. It's a little bit loose around the chest area, but it's not an issue though, especially if you are wearing a layer or two underneath. I just wear a short or long sleeve thick merino wool jersey which gives a nice layering and comfort. When you try the jacket on the sleeves will feel way too long and open, but they size down nicely when you adjust the velcro straps to the right size around your wrists. The jacket is a cycle cut, long tail, high front etc. So it feels a little weird trying it on off the bike, once your on a bike though it all makes sense.
Not a jacket for warm conditions though. If I wear a short sleeve merino jersey with the jacket in temps above 10 degrees C I start to get warm after about 6-7km and have to open up the pit vents and half of the front zip to keep ventilated.
