A3808 - Dennis Basso Reversible/Washable Faux ShearlingCoat
10 stars, if I could give it so many!!! My coat doesn't shed AT ALL!! I dearly love the shearling with the faux fur. But it seems like Dennis is phasing these shearling reversible coats OUT, and that makes me VERY UNHAPPY!! They have such presence! The only thing I could have wished this one had is a generous fur hood. I do have his longer coats (3 of them) which are the shearling faux fur longer coats w hoods. Why are you phasing out your most fabulous and highly customer loved, Mr Basso?? PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT PHASE THIS STYLE OUT!!!
I LOVE this ivory coat...it is so classic and pretty! I already own this coat in black, and after a few seasons through harsh New England winters, it still draws compliments and looks as new as the day I purchased it. I'm usually a large with Dennis' coats, but sized up on this one to allow more room for bulky sweaters. I own two other faux fur coats as well as a metallic trench designed by Dennis, and love the beauty, style, and quality of them all! (not to mention the positive attention!). I can't believe it, but I'm almost anxious for colder weather to wear it!!! This is truly a beautiful coat, either on the fur or ivory suede side. You will not be sorry if you purchase it!!
I purchased the Ivory on clearance and easy pay. LOVE it!! I forgot that it was reversible, until my Mom noticed. She loved it so much, she purchased it too. Would reorder again!!! Very soft and furry. It's summer now, but sometimes I like to put it on just because it feels so soft!! It is slightly boxy thru the hips, but perfect, since I don't want it to bind up on me when I sit/drive. PERFECT!!
I received my coat today. The ivory is beautiful and the fur is so soft. I was shocked at how beautiful it really is. I was also equally unprepared for the amount of shedding it does. I did put it in the dryer on air which helped, but then I found that the collar had a bad flaw on one third of it, on the right side on the front . If it had been on the underside I would have kept it. I called customer service and they are going to exchange it. If you have allergies, I'm not sure whether or not this coat is for you due to all the shedding. You are one of the fortunate ones if yours barely shedds. The XL is slightly snug, but not enough for me not to wear it. Probably the only thing that I would change about the construction of the coat would be to add shoulder pads. I was not blessed with square shoulders, so I always have to have shoulder pads in order to balance them out.
BEST COAT I'VE EVER OWNED!! LOOKS $$& SO WARM
I have had this coat for several years. It is my main coat esp when it's cold. It looks awesome with jeans or dressier. Basically goes with everything. Most astounding is that it looks as good today as when I purchased it! What great style and quality. When I'm in expensive sheepskin stores people come up to me to feel my coat.They can't believe it's faux and WASHABLE!! I could'nt be more pleased. I need to buy another one. I don't know what I'd do without this!!
I purchased this coat a week ago. The first time I wore it I had to remove it because it looked like I rolled around with five cats before I left my house. I wore it a total of ten minutes. It also is very bulky and runs big. This is the second coat I have returned of Dennis Basso due to the shedding. I will say the coat is very well made just not for me :(.
Nice coat, sheds a bit
Really nice coat, my first Dennis Basso purchase. Keeps me warm. I'm a Large but purchased an XL based on the other reviews. I feel like the XL swallows me, but since I usually have a bulky sweater underneath, it's an okay fit. Just don't like that it sheds so much. Can't wear it reversible because the tag on the collar is stitched on...would be necessary to cut tag off. But it's really a lovely coat. Looks like I paid lots of money for it if you don't notice the shedding pieces.
One of the best
I have had this coat for three years. It is comfy and warn in our below zero winters. This one is more of a casual look so I call it my weekend coat. The pockets truly are deep and large, great for keeping my hands warm. The collar when raised up almost becomes a hood and in our windy winters that is a blessing. Great coat Dennis !!
Just got this coat and I love it! It looks and feels so luxurious. I ordered the cream and it is very pretty. I am a size 6 and the Xsmall fit perfectly.
This coat is beautiful. Unfortunately I listened to the others reviewers and figured my original size would work. I am usually an XL in most Basso coats but not this one. I ordered an XL and it was way to small. There are no more size 1X so I am out of luck. The coat is quit nice. I saw no shedding and the coat was very soft. Maybe Mr. Basso will bring this back. If you are a size Large then the XL will probably work for you. The white coat is really white not cream.
This coat runs small compared to other David Basso coats I have bought. I usually take a 1X but in most coats the XL or even L work for me. Maybe it is because it is reversible. It's a shame because it was well made and different than other coats I have, And being able to wash it would be great. This is one I will wait for next year and hope it comes back. I would give it 5 stars except for the size as I can't honestly review how it would feel and wear.
