Rated 5 out of 5 by Purple Heron I really like it
I bought my usual Basso coat size medium in the black. It isn't as roomy in the shoulders as my others, but perfectly acceptable to me as I live in Florida and will be wearing it on cool nights with lightweight tops underneath. I am 5'9" and have long arms. The sleeves are too long for my taste, but it looks really good cuffed because the sleeves are finished about 5 inches on the inside.
The only time I fasten a coat or jacket around my neck is when it's really chilly and windy and I'm outside a long time, so I was glad to see how easily the collar turned down for everyday wear.
It's very soft and supple and I don't think it screams "faux" at all, comparing it to the really expensive black leather jacket my husband bought me (that I rarely wear because I hate dry cleaning bills).
The back pleat doesn't bell out at all on me. I also like the length - just covers my butt. I think it's very flattering on me and my husband's reaction was "Wow."
This is one of those jackets that I'll wear to death!

This was a beautiful jacket. I love the shape and the faux leather was unbelievable so soft very high end. But with saying that I had to return it as it was to snug in the shoulders for me.
Rated 4 out of 5 by pmr627 lovely faux leather
I'm sad this jacket doesn't fit me well because, like all of the other Basso pieces I own, it is very well made. Love the care with which it was packaged, and I really appreciate that Dennis always lines the inside of the cuffs so amply because I like to roll them up. I have other Basso leather jackets (faux and real) that fit well so I know I'll be back for more styles.

I really, terribly wanted to like this but it was so dreadful, the material in particular, I returned it. I do like the style, but it was so glaringly faux it had to go. The lining was nice, and the sizing was good.
And Dennis - I am quite sure you are a lovely, kind man who adores women and who is a great designer, but can you stop with the "Grand Presentation" of each model? We want women's clothes for women, not a big production. Thanks.
Rated 2 out of 5 by cd1111 A sweaty mess!
This does not breathe. No ventilation and although pretty color and shape, too hot to wear!
Rated 2 out of 5 by nyc1 Cheap cheap cheap
Not a good look. FAUX it certainly is, and looks it. Sometimes you just need to go with what you know and not the hysterical hype from the host. Back it went.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bev in IN Awesome jacket!
This is a great jacket, very soft, not heavy at all. Dennis does great with the faux leather, I also ordered a faux leather jacket from Denim and Co. and it was heavy and made plastic noise when you moved, it went back, but not this one!! I got the black, would get the tan if it had the silver snaps, etc. The gold just looks cheap.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eyjafjallajokull Flattering Jacket in Many Ways
This is a very youthful, flattering, comfortable black faux leather jacket. The raglan sleeves are perfect for wide shoulders, coupled with the A-line and back center pleat, it makes for a very becoming look. I love the funnel collar, larger pockets and snap closures. It's well suited for travel -- light weight and not bulky. I will be wearing it to the Kennedy Center in two weeks. Dennis, you're the best!
