Dennis Basso Reversible Textured Faux Fur Hooded Coat
LOADS OF COMPLIMENTS
I have had this coat for a couple of years now. I really wanted to let the person that wrote the last review about the coat not staying fastened, know that the key to that is once you hook it gently press the closures until you hear it snap. It took me a time or 2 to get use to it but the hooks really do stay closed. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!! Would have given it 5 stars had it been machine washable!
Love the coat, it's warm and pretty but, the toggles that were used to close the coat are terrible. They simply don't stay closed. A big disappointment since Dennis Basso is one of my favorites designer for coats.
Very good choice for travel to the cold north
This works and I am glad I made the purchase when I did
I bought this coat in 2011 & just got to use it-I live in Florida and encountered some health problems so couldn't travel as I had wanted until this Christmas. Went to Denver area and Boy O Boy was I glad for this coat. It was nice and warm and so fashionable-so many compliments. The 'fur' is very soft and realistic but then I bought it because it is NOT fur so it is 'real' to me. I am 5'10" so it is not quite knee length on me. I Love It!
I in the past have purchased 2 coats from Dennis Basso, but this one is exceptional. It is really a great look and feel. It has the look of true expense. Nice for anyone looking for a coat that makes a statement everyday, all day.
Nice work, Mr. Basso!
Loved it For a While
Looked good--fur is a bit too shiny, but I didn't care. I got a lot of compliments on it and it is very warm for the Chicago winter--works great.
But now that I have had it for 2 years, it is shedding all over my new car. Not cool for a Dennis Basso. So, I will try again. I have bought at least 4 of Dennis's coats and never had any problems before.
Dennis, you did it again. If I could I'd own all your coats and jackets....I wear a small most of the time, The coat runs a little bit large, but that's OK, I still love the look. I love reversable too. It's like have 2 coats...thanks again for your quality as well.
I received this and only wore it one time before returning. Normal size was small thru the chest. Hook closures kept opening. Non-fur reversible side looked cheap. Have several D Basso coats but this one wasn't for me.
Did not like at all...
The patterned fur on this coat makes a size 10 woman look larger. That is something I want to avoid, so back it goes. I bought my regular size L and it fit snug.
Beautifully Prepared For Winter Weather
I hate wearing coats! (and shoes) Having said that let me tell you how much I love my new Dennis Basso Faux Fur Hooded Coat.
When the temperature dropped into the 20's in PA last week I knew I needed to get a warm coat. My daughter is thrilled with her Dennis Bass faux fur from QVC. However, unlike her, I am a plus size lady. I needed something that would be figure flattering and imagined that fur would be too bulky for me. I went to QVC online and searched Dennis Basso. When I saw this coat I stopped searching and watched the video twice before Dennis and Lisa convinced me to try it. The versatility of "two coats in one" closed the deal. Shipping was very fast and it arrived yesterday amid other holiday parcels.
Upon opening the box it was love at first sight! Believe it or not this coat is even better in person than on the air. I usually wear a 2X from QVC but went up a size to insure there would roomy inside to avoid that often felt boxed in feeling when wearing a coat. The fit is perfect, the deep purple is really a soft burgundy, and soft is the optimum word! The fur is soft and warm, not bulky at all. The tailoring is sublime, the front hidden closure feature gives it an uncluttered finish.
The coat came on a Dennis Basso hanger, covered with a plastic bag and included (much to my delighted surprise) a Dennis Basso garment bag.
Unfortunately, the temperatures with weekend are going to be in the 50's so it may be some time before I get to wear my gorgeous new coat by Dennis Basso. No problem, I know the weather will turn cold again sooner or later and this time I will be beautifully prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store.
Did Not Like Textured Pattern of Faux Fur
Can't fault how beautifully constructed DB coats are. But the faux fur of this coat reminded me of the quality of the faux fur throws you might see in the home goods section of a discount department store this season. Soft yes. But Not something I want to wear as a coat. Reverse water resistant side is nice quality material, though. Returning coat.
High quality faux fur - hooks need reinforcing
Over the years I have purchased several Dennis Basso coats, but was skeptical about the furs. This was my first purchase of his faux fur and it's gorgeous. So silky and soft and I like that it's not bulky. I usually wear a large but this was too big on me so I'm returning for a M. I gave this three stars because there are a lot of complaints about the hooks and one of mine came right off while trying the coat on. Dennis, please reinforce these hooks somehow. The coat is lovely and I want it that bad that I reordered a smaller size. I just hope I don't have an issue with the hooks again.
