I have several coats by Dennis Basso, and love every one of them. I love wearing this coat both ways! I have had several people comment about how beautiful and how soft it is. The only negative is the fasteners. They are so strange, and it took me a while to figure out how to work them! They are on a hinge, and just fold over a hook to latch, but they are not totally secure. They tend to slip off the hooks easy. But I do not wear my coats closed most of the time, so it really is not an issue for me.
Rated 5 out of 5 by aury Better than new
I ordered this coat about 2 years ago I wore it everyday and received lots of compliments I decided to laundry the coat but I was afraid I would ruin it...even though it says it was washable,..so as a safeguard, I ordered another one ,which came in today. You can imagine my surprise when the coat I washed looked as fresh as the new one I received today.
Ladies, if Dennis Basso says it's washable...it definitely is..it liked the style of this coat. Would love to have this style in white,or a color (hint..hint)...
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lori Celeste Feels great, practical but not slimming on me
Both sides of this reversible coat feel great, silky or soft, and are pretty. The pockets and nice-fitting hood make it practical. The weight of the coat is light enough and warm enough. The length covers your bum but is not too long. My only disappointment was that the coat was not slimming on me. My body is pear-shaped, 5 foot 5 inches and 158 pounds. I got the large sized coat.

The sleeves on this coat is a little short, compared to the 2 other D.B. coats I own. Very warm. The wind chill here makes it feel like 30 degrees.
Rated 2 out of 5 by sjgrl What were they thinking?!
Just received this jacket and it will be going right back! The jacket feels flimsy - guess this is their idea of "puddling" I keep hearing so much about. The outer fabric is very "silky" and in general, the jacket doesn't seem to have much substance. I also didn't realize the waist area was gathered which I don't like - ordered the chevron jacket at the same time which I may keep but don't seem to have much luck with this brand and am tired to paying return shipping - sorry Dennis, you lost me!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MadisonDearborn So Cozy!
While this coat is the prettiest coat I have ever owned, it is also so practical! And so, so, cozy! The snap closures that have bee complained about are not that difficult and I like them. Take your time and be gentle. Just open the snap and put it in the ring on the other side of the coat. Remember there are two rows of snaps/rings on each side. Then merely snap closed. You will get the hang of it! Order the coat... it is pretty terrific! I bought the dark taupe because I am fair. Love! The sizing is a little big... One size down is ok, particularly if between sizes. And if you are a shorter woman, like me at 5'3", you can expect it to be longer than the models of the video. I feel, at a Medium, the length is not overwhelming. The coat is not too thick. Comfortable on the arms.
Rated 4 out of 5 by good witch runs large
Ordered this Dennis Basso coat without checking my other DB coat first...ordered a medium, am 5'4' & weigh about 145 right now. My other DB, which I LOVE is an XS! I have gained 11 lbs, & my other is a bit small, but still wearable. Unfortunately, this one will be going back, its HUGE, hope they have a small in stock.
Rated 4 out of 5 by AHolt Comfortable and warm
I purchased this coat in black. It's comfortable and it's certainly warm. I wore it in Iceland and it kept me toasty warm. It's machine washable/tumble dry which makes it easy to care for. It has clips rather than buttons which will actually help those who have manual dexterity issues with their hands (i.e., arthritis, tremors, etc.).
