Dennis Basso Textured Rosette Faux Fur A-line Coat
Love this coat!
I recently received this coat in black and love it! I guess it depends what you are looking for, but I found what I needed. This is NOT a heavy, keep you toasty warm in the dead of winter coat! I have several Basso coats that do that. I wanted a coat that could be dressy or casual that did not add weight/bulk when wearing a jacket or blazer underneath. So this is perfect for me. In a place like Florida or California it would do for a winter coat, but not in the East. So if you are seeking a great looking and stylish coat where you don't need it to keep you warm when it is freezing outside...................this is the coat.
pretty, very light weight
I love this coat! Nice and soft, very light weight. This is perfect for fall, probably not a good choice for cold winters. My only complaint, which is quite common with Dennis Basso designed coats; the sleeve lining hangs out when you cuff the coat sleeve. Don't know why he hasn't put some stitches inside to prevent this yet. I own multiple Dennis coats and have the same problem with all of them.
I bought this coat in grey last year and got compliments every time I wore it! "The girls" would make me take it off so they could try it on and passed it around- they couldn't keep their hands off it! It is amazingly soft and luscious! Light as a feather and yet kept me cozy in single digits! The grey is a really lovely elegant color. I want it in ivory and black but now they don't have my size and I am heartbroken! My two girls and my son's girlfriend were all fighting over it when we went to go for a walk with the dogs when they were home last Christmas! It was really funny! Dennis , you made the most perfect coat! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! and it seems, so does everyone else! If you are unfamiliar with furrier closures, it takes a little time to get used to them, but just suck it up! You'll get used to them and you'll be glad you did!
Love Love Love
I purchased this coat in the ivory color last december...i got so many compliments..it was just what I was hoping it would be, comfy with the a line, cozy with the soft like butter fur, and oh so warm!! It am has an almost vintage look to it, it is gorgeous!!!!
This coat is a dream. The feel is beautiful. I am an XL and usually sleeves are too long so I have to return them. The sleeves fold up and look gorgeous. The fit is kind. The fabric is light in weight which makes it soooo comfortable. It does not feel bulky. The only problem is that it is so toasty warm that I wish I could sleep in it.
Sizing is Off
Needed a classy coat so I ordered this Faux Fur in a Large. The arm length was 4 inches to long and looked sloppy if I rolled them up. Not a coat for a shorter person, say 5'4" or shorter. Makes one look dumpy. I returned it the same day.
A lighter weight fur
I Iiked this Dennis Basso coat as it is lighter weight compared to his other coats.
Living in Missouri often the temperatures in winter are not cold enough for my heavier Dennis Basso coats while this coat can be worn in the 40 degree range. I purchased both the black and the white. Love the white however the black is nice to wear with black jeans for everyday daytime wear. At 5 ft. 3 in. tall 130 pounds I ordered the small and it fit perfectly.
I bought this in Grey and just love it! It is so soft, lightweight and feels so cozy. The fit is great and is very comfortable. I received it two weeks ago and have already have had a couple of compliments with some great comments on how nice it looks. It comes with extra button and a wonderful inside pocket.
This coat is lovely. I ordered the plum color and it's between a plum with rosy burgundy tones. No purple - which I didn't want. The texture is so soft and very comfortable to touch. I took the advice of the previous posters and ordered it down a size. I agree that it's roomy. Love it and now I'm on a mission of finding the perfect winter scarf to match.
Love the coat!!
I love this coat. It is true to size, not too heavy and not too light.
I bought one in black and it's beautiful, I had to go back and get another. What great value, I have about eight Dennis Basso coats and they are of great quality.
A rose for my Mother
Mother loves roses and she will flip out when she opens this on Christmas day. We're in the south so this is light weight enough to wear and not bulky at all. I purchased the ivory for her 1st Sunday coat. I'm gonna try to hold off until Christmas this is the perfect gift so soft and the roses are much smaller than they appeared on-line or on tv. I was pleasantly surprised.
