I honestly can't believe all the negative comments either! I have been looking at this coat for weeks but the negative comments kept me from ordering it. Then last week I caved in and placed my order. My new coat arrived today and I am in love! The pattern reminds me of a coat my Mom had in the late '60's <3 The lovely collar, the way it sweeps out a bit on the bottom, and the fit.. I would give it 20 stars if I could. It does have a slight shine but I don't mind that. I am not trying to pretend it is real fur. I would never wear real fur... They look better on the animals. I am 5' tall and it hits me 3 inches above my dresses. I will wear it mostly with dresses. I bought the black and it is lovely. If you love vintage you will love this coat. My daughter wants the pewter but most reviews say it sheds. I wonder if we shake all the shedding out if it would be fine?? Would love to hear from someone that bought the pewter.

I really do not understand the negative reviews of this sweet vintage style coat. I ordered the black and it is gorgeous! True to size, not heavy, but warm. Thinking about going back for the grey(but that seems to be the one folks had problems with shedding). The black does not shed at all, so not sure how/why the grey would. Anyway, the black is perfect!

I purchased this beautiful coat in both the white and Burgundy. Both are absolutely beautiful. I love both of them. The fit is perfect (size medium 10/12) and the weight is perfect for the weather here in Arizona. Believe it or not it does get cold here so this coat is light weight, but cozy warm. I'm very happy with my purchases and I highly recommend this coat to anyone that wants a light weight, but cozy toasty warm snuggley coat. If you live where it's super cold then I would recommend one of Dennis Basso's heavier coats.

I truly do not understand any negative reviews! I adore this coat! It is silky on the outside and silky on the inside. It is warm but not heavy and doesn't weigh you down. The collar is very sweet. The fabric is NOT dollar store fabric. It is timeless, feminine, and tasteful.

BASED ON THE MEASUREMENTS SHOWN ON THE SCREEN, I ORDERED AN XS. I CALLED CUSTOMER SERVICE TO MAKE SURE THE MEASUREMENTS WERE ACTUAL MEASUREMENTS AND NOT GARMENT MEASUREMENT. HE ASSURED ME THAT DENNIS BASSO RUNS LARGE; SO I ORDERED THE XS. IT'S TOO TIGHT.
ALSO, THE MAROON COLOR ON LIVE TV LOOKED QUITE A BIT LIGHTER AND BRIGHTER THAN THE ACTUAL ITEM.
I WANTED TO LOVE IT, BUT BACK IT GOES.
3 STARS BECAUSE OF THE SIZING AND COLOR. THE COAT WOULD BE BEAUTIFUL IN ANOTHER COLOR!

I purchased all 4 of the colors and love them all. The style is adorable and the fit is perfect -- (5'2" at 140, XXS in just about every QVC designer) -- I don't have to roll the sleeves to feel comfortable; however, I did roll them once to get more of a bracelet length sleeve and was happy with the amount of fur on the underside to make a nice cuff.
I will say there is a variance in the furs by color: They are all short fur, so if you want something fluffy this is not for you...
The black is not as soft as the others and sometimes looks a little shiny.
The red is a little softer, but because it's so short it just can't be so plush.
The platinum is so beautiful to look at -- I think mine was a return because a button is loose, but I can fix that...I agree with others that the platinum fur does shed a little at first. I have worn it many times now and am not losing any more fur. It doesn't look any worse for the wear, I just think the fur was loose from the manufacturing. It is lovely.
The ivory is the best of all four colors -- it looks so soft and feels the softest as well. So luxurious! It just makes you want to snuggle!
It is interesting to have so much variety in the same style of jacket, but each definitely has a place in my heart.
The black and the red are the more casual while the ivory and the platinum are for a nice evening out.
Love these jackets!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Chilbub THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY OF MAKING THESE
I would love a faux Persian lamb coat or jacket and have seen some that look fantastic, have bought them and the style, fit and sizing didn't flatter me. I own many of Dennis' coats but have never bought a Persian lamb from him because even in the pictures they just don't look attractive; the faux mink collars look faux. The "lamb" itself looks faux; the pile on the fur just isn't deep enough to enhance the color highlights. The other problem is the color; black doesn't work and neither do any of the other colors. A deep battleship grey would be fantastic and bring out the color highlights in the pile. Please Dennis make us a really, really nice Persian lamb in that color.

This was my first Basso purchase and I am sad to say I was not at all impressed! The faux fur is thin and very cheap looking. I have found better quality faux fur at a local discount store. The design is very boxy and unflattering. Sending it back without a second thought.
