Rated 5 out of 5 by CA Sushee Luxurious Basso Vest
I've watched Dennis Basso on the Q for several years but had never seen a Basso piece in person until now. I live in Southern California and seldom need a heavy coat and have found that a faux fur vest provides just the right amount of warmth and style for our climate. I chose this style among several that Dennis sells and am happy I with my purchase. The fur is plush but not too heavy and the asymmetrical zip front closure and wide collar offer a different look than the other non-Basso vest in my closet. I am very happy with my purchase, would happily purchase other items from the Dennis Basso line and look forward to wearing it this winter.

WOW!!!! I have several Dennis pieces-- so the chance to purchase on sale was a true gift! The quality is not in question -- it is fabulous!! LOVE THIS VEST! Bought the grey hoping the black is still available
Rated 5 out of 5 by TXTJ Great vest & value
Love the style and fit seems true to size, maybe a little full, but still fits smoothly. I like it open better. The fur is soft, just a tad sheen to it though and the collar is appropriate. I ordered one of his others that was a damaged return, very disappointing, I'm very happy with this, even though I loved the color of the other and would have kept both if the other collar worked (although I did work with it and it couldn't be fixed without cutting into the fur). I ordered this in black, very fashionable and will work with anything. I ordered my usual size M.

I found this vest on QVC.com and couldn't believe something so cute could be on clearance! I ordered the black colorway with high hopes.
On the plus side, the faux fur is very realistic, soft and beautiful, and this is a beautifully constructed garment. Dennis's design standards are impeccable, and he never cuts corners. I love my Dennis Basso items, and think his offerings are among the best values on QVC.
There's only one problem with this vest. Because of the moto styling, there are two layers of fur across the stomach in the front. And there are two more layers of fur on the inside of the front edges, to make the facing. This looks fine when the vest is worn open, but if you zip it up? You have FOUR layers of fur across your stomach. I was instantly shaped like a giant apple. From the front, it's a ten. From the back, it's a ten. From the side....... it's a two. I realize this puts me in the minority among reviewers, but I'll be sending mine back.

Dennis, you have done it again!!!! I bought the gray and black, and I absolutely love them both!!! The faux fur feels just like real fur, it's so soft. And, the fit is perfect!!!! I'm so happy I bought both!!! Thanks again Dennis!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by 4UTEXAS Super soft faux fur!
I've been buying Basso jackets and full length coats in his faux furs since 1999. This is quite a step up to even nicer by way of being so soft. As always it is extremely well made, designed and presented! The care to details in construction is why I always return to a Basso item to purchase again and again!!!!! Since I live in North Texas, I don't always have much winter time for the need of a really heavy coat but when I do I always grab a Basso coat! Now I know I have a go to Basso vest to grab on those so-so cool days with wind, rain but warm out of the direct, air as in the car with our warm winter sun. I got the rich black. (9 years in the mid west cured me of ever choosing gray clothing...too depressing for me.) Fits loosely, but expect to wear open by lunch time here in winter. Thank you Dennis Basso and QVC! Love the collar and off set zipper.

Finally broke down and ordered this Vest and boy I am so glad that I did. I love it, love the fit, and color. I ordered the Medium and it fits true to size so if you want extra room go up one size. Dennis is amazing!

Dennis this is a beautiful vest. I wore it to church Sunday with a Nolan Miller starburst pin on the lapel. I got so many compliments on my outfit. The preacher even commented on it after church. I really do love it. Thanks from a southern lady who likes to dress nice and you make it easy.
