Rated 1 out of 5 by VAB Seal What a disappointment!
I purchased this coat in my usual size for a Dennis Basso coat (XL) and was looking forward to receiving it, since winter finally arrived again. Unfortunately, the coat was way too small around the middle so I sent it back (at my expense, of course) and, swallowing my pride, asked that it be exchanged for a 1X. Imagine my surprise when the replacement coat arrived today, only to be tighter than the original XL. I had to double-check the label, since the arms and back shoulders were so uncomfortably tight. This one is definitely going back and I WILL NOT give it a third try. The coat, in my opinion and apparently I'm not alone, is cut improperly and not according to the standard sizes. It has now cost me $18.00 in shipping charges to try this coat. I'll think twice before purchasing another coat.

I was really excited about buying this coat until I got it. It was very thin and the seams were coming undone and the fur was falling apart. Very disappointed in this purchase. This is being returned forsure, so not worth the price. Not even worth the one star.
Rated 2 out of 5 by apple eyes DISAPPOINTING.......VERY
I HAVE SEVERAL DENNIS BASSO COATS. I LOVE THEM. THIS ONE, HOWEVER IS A LOSER. IT IS JUST CHEAP LOOKING AND DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A DENNIS BASSO COAT AT ALL. I ORDERED AND XL. WHICH IS MY NORMAL SIZE. IT WAS WAY TOO TIGHT AND DID NOT FIT RIGHT IN THE ARMS OR CHEST. SENT IT BACK AND ORDERED A 1X. I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. I HAD TO CHECK THE TAG TO BE SURE IT WAS A 1X. IT FIT EXACTLY LIKE THE XL I HAD RETURNED. IT IS SO SMALL I CAN ONLY WEAR A LIGHT WEIGHT BLOUSE UNDER IT AND THE OTHER REVIEW IS RIGHT. IT IS NOT A COLD WEATHER COAT MAYBE 35 OR 40 BUT NOT COLDER. I WAS REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS COAT AFTER WATCHING THE PRESENTATION. BUT IT WAS WAY OVER RATED. SORRY DENNIS. NEXT TIME.

Extremely disappointed in this coat! I received one and it was much to small. I sent it back and the second one came today a size bigger. Still not a great fit. When I took the coat off my clothes were covered with lint from the inside lining.
It is going back again.... I usually have better luck with Dennis Basso's coats.
Like I said VERY disappointed and it is going back for the second time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by snowpug Very Stylish, Warmer than it seems
A beautiful coat! At first I thought it was too light weight--and too small. I usually wear an xs in Dennis Basso coats, but when I pulled it out of the box I thought it was going to be too small. However, I put on a very bulky sweater and then tried on the coat. It fit like a dream! Sleeves are a great length (I'm 5'5), and I love the collar! I wore it outside where it was 5 degrees with a scarf and it was fine. I like the way it looks especially to run to town in. Just a nice run around coat, looks very expensive. Very nice, and I am very pleased with this purchase. So far I have not been let down by Dennis Basso coats!
Rated 2 out of 5 by moreta First DB Coat - Disappointed
I just got this last night, I had been on waitlist for a week or two. This is my first DB coat and after watching his presentations for years, I was very excited to get this item. I too purchased this as a winter coat for Northern Illinois. It came at the right time because we just had snow and temps of 9 degrees. I am sorry to say that I am disappointed in this item.
The coat looks beautiful, but it is very thin. Thus, there is no true warmth for cold winter temps. I thought this coat would be thick and cozy and frankly after all the hype look like it had real fur collar and cuffs. NO WAY!!! It looks just like all the other fake fur I've owned. In other words like my nephew's teddy bear.
The lining sheds horribly. I had to carry a lint brush to work and people have been picking the lining off my sweater all morning.
As another person states there are raw edges, but I think that's suppose to be that way for this style.
I ordered according the measurements on the screen and ordered 2 sizes lower than normal and it fits properly. No problem wearing a smaller size. :>)
The pockets are placed in a funny position as well. I have to hike my arms up and it makes me look all bunched up. The pockets should slant to the sides.
I will send this back after Christmas, I just don't have the time to box it up and go to the post office before then. Perhaps I will try another DB coat in future. I'm willing to give the brand another go as so many QVC shoppers have enjoyed this brand over the years. Just tone down the hype a little, this is not the gold plated coat it was described as being.

I originally ordered this coat before it went on clearance. I wanted it for a winter coat to use for work and everyday wear. Whereas the material is very soft and cozy, it felt more like wearing a blanket than a coat. It really has no significant weight to it. I ordered a 2x, and I felt it was too large but it was the construction that kept me from reordering a smaller size. The fur collar and cuffs is also the lining inside. The coat has no "silky" lining. Going down the back of the inside of the coat is the unfinished seam where the outside fabric and inside lining are sewn together. It just did not look like a Dennis Basso quality coat. I expected more. If you were to wear this coat in temperatures above 35 degrees, it may keep you warm enough if you layered underneath.

but too tight under the arms and a bit too short for my liking......I will order the next size and hope for the best.
