Rated 4 out of 5 by susantl Quilted Zip Front Jacket
I purchased this jacket in the bronze color. I love this color and have found this item to be well constructed . It has beautiful stitching that creates a interesting pattern and surface texture. It fits true to size and is a warm jacket.
I commute and work in NYC. I take buses and subway's several times a day. This coat
has received much abuse. However, it looks brand new !
My only complaint is the fabric doesn't "breathe". Consequently, I found myself sweating
when wearing the coat. I think this coat is well priced and I am happy I purchased it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by lprice love it but could be better
this is gorgeous. I ordered in the gray and blue. can't decide which one to keep. the design is flawless but.. the hood is so deep that if I pull it so it hits the back of my head the faux fur comes down to my nose and I can't see! what is up with that. I have folded the fur back and I can see but the hood wasn't made for it to be folded. I am seriously thinking of trying to invisably sew it down but at the cost of this nice looking jacket, that seems a bit ridiculous. it runs a little small in the upper arms and across the shoulders too. I could probably wear it comfortably unzipped driving the car. when will designers acknowledge that plus sized women generally have much fuller arms. it is even noticeable in the models that wear size large in Susan Gravers line. come on designer guys, and gals, we need more ease in the upper arms.
Rated 4 out of 5 by NancyBR Beautiful But Tight
Beautiful jacket. I love the fleece lined pockets. Perfect for walking but tight in my regular size. Hope it doesn't burst open when sitting. I will keep because I love it and it does close when standing. Hope the zipper holds up. Dennis: consider sizing like Lori Goldstein and Susa Graver do for us plus sizes.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Iya Pretty jacket. Poor fit.
I own other Dennis coats in size large and have always been very happy with the fit and quality. So, I confidently ordered this in the gray, size large. When I tried on this jacket, the arm holes were cut so small, and across the back it was so tight that I could not reach my arms in front of me. The waist however was big and boxy. It was a very pretty coat though and the finishes and details were nice.

I ordered this jacket in blue.....I probably should have ordered down a size but I will keep it...I think I am in between L and XL so will keep the XL. The blue is beautiful and unusual.
Living tin Texas I was afraid it would be too heavy but it isn't heavy at all. I am going on a trip up north so it should get plenty of wear.
I only gave it 4 stars because I was very disappointed in how it arrived. I paid well over $100 for this jacket, and it came stuffed into a thin plastic bag which was torn open and had black grease on the bag. This was my first Dennis Basso purchase so I was very surprised at how it was packaged. it looked like it had been run over by a conveyer belt or a car...fortunately, the inner plastic bag was not ripped open so the jacket wasnt damaged; have never received something I have paid this much for so poorly packaged.
I would not recommend giving as a gift due to the poor packaging which doesn't guarantee
it will arrive undamaged, and the sizing issue.

I received my new jacket and really love it. I ordered the jacket in the color bronze size medium and it fits perfectly. I usually order medium which sometimes runs a little large for me but this jacket fits exactly. I am 5'4" and 150 lbs. and will be a sty'ln 74 year old in my new jacket. Dennis Basso designs are great!

I will be going to Vegas in January and needed a coat that I could wear here in Ohio too. This coat is perfect for my trip. Last time I went I froze with my old coat. I was told it was much warmer than it really was out there at that time. I bought the blue and wish I had also bought the bronze. This is a very nice streamline fit too.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jazzguitar Beautiful coat!
I love this coat!!! I bought the silver color and it is gorgeous! Mine had the bad smell that many people are talking about. Easy fix just wash it. I removed the hood and washed according to instructions and the smell is totally gone! The hood did not smell bad. Not sure if it is washable due to the faux fur. The coat does run a little large but that's ok due to wearing thicker sweaters and layers in the winter.
