A10588 - Dennis Basso LeopardPrint WaterResistant TrenchCoat w/Belt
This coat is fabulous. The print reminds me of Yves St. Laurent. I have lived in London and Paris and seen bold animal prints like this for hundreds, if not thousands more dollars. The brown color is more rust than orange. The fit is divine and the collar is total glamour. This coat will never go out of style.....just perfect. I am very tired of seeing tiny animal prints, this is for the urban jungle! Can't wait to wear it.
Mod, Retro Chic
I beg to differ with the previous reviewers regarding the color. The oversize print demands strong color. It's more pumpkin (than orange), plus chamois-gold and black. Overall, this trench has a Mod, '60s "Spy Movie" kind of look.
As far as the sizing, I think Dennis Basso tends to run generous. I normally wear a Small, but after finding out the finished garment measurements, I ordered an XS and the fit was perfect, as was the sleeve length.
My only suggestion is that the buttons should have been reinforced on the other side with small clear buttons. However, considering the price, I can take care of that myself.
IT SOUNDED LIKE EVERYTHING THAT I WAS LOOKING FOR,,,BUT I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED,,,,SLEEVES TOO LONG, RUNS LARGE, AND THE MOST DISAPPOINTING, WAS THE COLOR,,,IT'S PRIMARILY A RUSTY /ORANGE COLOR,,,,I WOULD LIKE IT MUCH BETTER IF IT WERE IN TANS, BROWNS OR BLACKS. NOT A VERY COMPLIMENTING COLOR COMBO.
Cut of coat is nice, sizing is true to size, but the most predominate color in leopard print is orange. Not very realistic. Sorry Dennis, it's going back.
This coat is absolutely fabulous!!! Love the print...love the fabric....especially love the price!!!! Although I wear a small...I like my trench coats a little bigger so I got a medium. Can't say enough good things about this item!!!!
I love the idea of this coat, but at 5'3" and busty, the coat size that fits my bust, has arms that extend way past my hands. I really wish Mr. Basso would have coats that are sized for petite women like me. Also, I really wish he had sized down the leopard pattern. I love Dennis Basso's style but, in person, the pattern is a bit over-sized. It looked good on the women who modeled it during the show but it looks a lot different on women who don't share the model's body type.
Tall girls welcome!
I am 5' 10, this fits! The sleeves run long. Really nice lep print,looks like it cost a whole lot more(.More fitted than A04295, also a lep trench , but that one was too boxy for me,) This runs true to size.This is like WOW!
Will make rainy days welcome.But, Not for the shy...
