I would give even more stars if I could! So many reasons to love this amazing coat. Looks and feels real, but it's not bulky or heavy, no maintenance, affordable for the quality and makes you feel great having chosen this faux fur. It's also practical - keeps me warm in drizzly San Francisco and the hood protects your hair and keeps it smooth. It's versatile, works for many occasions dressed up or down. I wore it on date night, graduation dinner and on a girls' night out. I can't wait to wear it over the holidays this year. Also, it's beautiful and it makes you feel beautiful! This coat gets a lot of attention and many compliments and my husband likes it too.
Rated 5 out of 5 by treele SIMPLY MARVELOUS!
I luv it...I am only 5'5 1\2" & 140 lbs.& the body is a little long as well as the sleeves...the sleeves fit like on the pictured model, but the body is just above my knees. The width on the shoulder's is right on that is why I am not sure if the small would fit ...I luv that you have 2 options, either dressy casual or dressy... I want to get the sable but will try 1 size down-the small!

I bought both colors thinking I would return one. Well, they were both so beautiful I kept them both. This is a flatter fur and looks so real! I am a 3x and they both look great!
Rated 5 out of 5 by pinupshoes Amazing!
This coat look fantastic & totally real! I've never seen faux fur like this before. I do agree with another reviewer that stated the sleeves are way too long. I thought of having it tailored, but after spending so much on it I just decided to cuff the sleeves & it looks great! Worth EVERY penny!!! I've worn it everywhere from the opera to a local casual restaurant with jeans. It's such a classic silhouette & the hood keeps it from being too dressy.
Rated 3 out of 5 by abcdef321 Weighty coat with sleeves way too long
I have a new system for myself that I started in December 2015: if I have to return a product to QVC than the review immediately begins with three stars and goes from there. This Basso platinum collection jacket receives three stars.
I ordered the coat because of its sleek appearance, and the fact that it looks like a car coat of sorts. The positive review about how the sleek lines of the coat doesn't make the wearer look like a bear also had a huge influence. However, after receiving the coat, I quickly discovered the sleeves were three inches too long on me in the 1X, which is pretty ridiculous because I stand 5'9". I could turn back the sleeves three inches, but then the sleek look of the coat was utterly lost. A coat that costs this much should fit PERFECTLY. I did notice, after receiving the coat, that Dennis Basso's assistant, slips on the coat in the online video, with the sleeves already rolled up, and she, like me, is quite tall. It seems like the Basso folks know that sleeve length is a problem.
I also found that the cord that goes over the button at the neckline, in order to create a tighter hood, was hard to work. Since I am a very practical person, I found, that once that neckline button was buttoned, the wearer now has a more secure hood, yet, on me, the hood was still loose. Not good.
The biggest surprise to me is how much this coat weighs. The thought of wearing real fur is abhorrent to me, so I can't make a weight comparison to real fur. Only a positive note, I found the brown color with its silvery tones to be gorgeous.
But we here in deep South Texas have had a global-warming winter this late 2015 into early 2016, with our first freeze occurring in late January. The fact that this coat is so warm and, by extension, bulky, played about 50 percent into my decision to return the coat. I must admit that I have been truly spoiled in this regard by other QVC products: those made in Ireland by Aran Craft, Kilronan and Boyne Valley Weavers. Those 100 percent Ireland-made wool products are so lightweight and so insulating--factors that encourage me to purchase from these three vendors time after time. That said, the sleeve length on this faux-fur Basso platinum collection jacket, the sleeves that are so long and the coat costing almost $250--these factors were the true deal breaker. I returned the jacket to QVC.

I purchased the sable color 3 months ago and I wear it all of the time. It is gorgeous and everyone thinks it's real and touches it and even say are you sure it's not real.
I love the hood the feel the look, everything about this beautiful warm coat. It is so nice to have a hood when the weather is cold!!!!
It can go from dress to casual. I would like to see more coats like this with hoods, particularly in a full length coat. I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Peebles55 Awesome and beautiful
I purchased the brown in medium. It's beautiful and so well made. It's not so bulky like some faux coats look. It's flattering on. I love it and highly recommend. It looks so real.Dennis makes some awesome coats. I have purchased about five or six of his coats and absolutely love them. Thanks to Dennis and the Q. Viv from TN.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jo in Tipton Soooo Real
I have a full length mink coat that I don't wear anymore because it just overwhelms me.... it's so sad.... But when this was presented the first time, my husband asked if I wanted it, and I said, of course I do...so he ordered it right away...I got it in the brown.... I will tell you for sure....it passes for the real thing...I've gotten so many compliments...I just say thank you.....❗️The length is perfect.....dress it up or dress it down.....and I especially love that it has a hood.....I like that it can take on a sporty look as well..... You won't be disappointed.....
