Rated 5 out of 5 by LuLo&Me BEST PURCHASE EVER
I am MADLY IN LOVE with this coat. I originally bought it in a small after researching all the reviews on sizing (I'm 5'2"/110lbs and usually buy my jackets in medium so I can wear sweaters comfortably). The small was too large and I considered having it tailored. Fortunately someone must have returned an xx-small and the fit is PERFECT. I am still able to wear sweaters and it gave me an idea of how Mr. Basso sizes his coats. Most run one or two sizes larger so I suggest doing research before you buy and looking at the models to see how it fits them.
I live in Minnesota and this coat quickly became my favorite to wear on the coldest of days!
I get remarks on it every time I go out.
Thank you to Mr. Basso for this coat. It has warmth, it's swanky and I appreciate that it is faux. Wearing this coat makes me feel special, singular, stylish and sophisticated- it makes me feel good and that's what it is about, right?

I just received this ultra gorgeous coat in grey, and it is beautiful beyond imagination. I am 5'2", 122 pounds, and the x-small (my normal Basso size) fits beautifully. If a coat can be perfect, this one is it! The drape of the coat is so exquisite. The coat is soft, very figure flattering, and warmly wonderful! This coat is special in every way.

My third DB coat - and definitely the most luxurious! Beautifully made, details are everywhere, and everyone wants to "touch it"! I'll be back for another, no doubt because Dennis Basso's quality is solid. The sizing on this coat is generous given the swing style, and I ordered a medium (I'm a 10-12) and probably could have worn the small. You won't be disappointed by this coat!

My only regret is that I couldn't have gotten this coat in the Mocha. Sadly my size was sold out by the time I made my decision. The quality is beautiful and actually, the dark color may be a tad more versatile. I love the princess lines and I disagree that the coat makes you look big but if your carry your weight in the mid section, the style might be a problem. Definitely size down a size and I think you have a classy, swingy full length you'll use for many years. Coats are fun and I really love this one!!!.
Rated 3 out of 5 by carolcook Nice but too big
Very nice coat but runs really big and makes you look heavy with a big behind. I read reviews before buying and took my chances but this one I have to return. The other coat I bought was perfect
Rated 5 out of 5 Love, Love, Love!!!!!
I absolutely adore this coat! I have received many of Dennis Basso's coats in the past, and I think this is my favorite. I have been looking for a full-length faux fur coat for a long time. Most women wear jackets evidently, but I much prefer the warmth and look of a long coat. I hope to have this one for many years. I can't praise it enough!
Rated 5 out of 5 by wertz super warm, suer beautiful
In the padt Basso ran big, and this i in that vein. i am a 14 and this fit great in lg, blazer underneath. The quality of the material is the best of many Basso's I own. I did not think the side or back view was any different from another fur, real or fake. The cuffs turn up, so unless you arms are very short (perhaps you are 5' or under), you can suff the sleeves.
I love it!

I ordered this in both XL and 1X and ended up returning both much to my chagrin. The fabric is so lux, so soft and the print so beautiful I am heartbroken - particularly because the shipping and return fees are really high ($$$). The fit and flare flirty cut just does not work in XL and 1X if you have a nice busty Jane Russell figure. Where the cut should taper into the waist it doesn't taper enough (particularly across the back). You end up with huge volume starting just below the bust that just kind of hangs - surprisingly matronly and dumpy. Regular princess lines would have been more flattering. And please believe me that I really wanted this coat to work. I even toyed with the idea of my tailor taking it in - but then I came to my senses and boxed it back up. Being in love with the faux fur is not enough - the coat has to look beautiful on too. Turns out I love my $90 DB faux distressed shearling better than any of his platinum line... And between the shipping and return costs on the two platinum coats I tried ... I could have bought another of the faux shearling.

I had to wait a long time for this coat & and at first I was going to send it back.I am retiring this year & plan to move to Florida, I allready have several real fur coats that I am wondering how I am going to get any use on the west coast of Florida.I was a former professional model in my youth & the coat looked stunning on me. I could not send it back. I will take it to Europe with me & wear it if I have to or I am sure there will be some cool nights in Sarasota. thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by meemajudy Love this coat
This is a great coat. I have purchased many of Dennis' coats. Most have been wonderful. This is by far the best one. Do not hesitate with this one it's spectacular. The fur its luscious. The style is very flattering. My only problem is with the sleeves.
I wish I could keep it, but unfortunately I have to return it. The sleeves are too long. I am 5'1" and the sleeves are at least 6 inches too long. I have had this problem with other of Dennis' coats. I thought this would be different because the cuffs can be turned up. I did that but it still is too long. Dennis, can you make a petite line for us shorties.?
Rated 5 out of 5 by Royal Palace Shopper Final Verdict Pending
Anxious to receive this coat but was disappointed with the fit. When Jane tried it on it looked good on her and since she isn't a model, I was optimistic and hoped it would look just as good on other non model figures. I have found DB coats ran true to size but this one is big and so I couldn't get an accurate feeling of how it will look. Fortunately the next size down is available and so I'm reserving my final opinion of the coat pending receipt of a smaller size. I gave it a 5 star rating because it is everything Jane and Dennis said it was. But if a magnificent coat has a fit that doest't work well for most customers all the 5star ratings out there won't do anyone any good!
PS I would recommend to a friend with the above comments and caution.
