Dennis Basso Textured Rosette Faux Fur A-line Coat
So much better than I thought
I have wanted this coat for the longest time and finally bought it when it was the OTO. I got the cream and it has become my go to coat. Thought it was going to be for special events but now wear it all the time. It is so soft and has a luxury feel. It makes me feel so good when I war it. You can defiantly see the rosettes pattern. Thinking I would like another one. I’m a size 14 and ordered a L so I can wear a sweater underneath. Love this coat.
Love love love this coat!
I love this coat! It's warm yet lightweight and I have received many compliments in the last 2 days since it arrived. It has a beautiful texture and feel to it. I know Dennis is retiring this coat but as I have been catching myself cuddling in it around the house (and that sounds strange I know :)) I came up with an idea. It would be great if Dennis could redesign this using the same material into a bathrobe lounger. How awesome would that be??? Yummy!! Thanks Dennis, I have purchased several of your pieces over the years but this is my all time favorite.
I purchased the plum/wine color. It is gorgeous. I have been eyeing this coat for a few years. Because it is being discontinued I made the purchase. It is not a coat for a real cold day. A sweater underneath would be needed for extra warmth. I ordered my regular size and it is perfect. I was afraid to make the purchase because I am a plus size woman. I thought I would look like a big bear but not the case. It is flattering no matter what size you are. Thanks Dennis.
Love ! I have 4!
I must love this coat style because I have 4 in different colors! I wanted the ivory and thought I will order it some day but I noticed Dennis saying he was going to retire this coat I thought I had better order it. I love it as much as the others! I always get so many compliments when I wear any color but the ivory look very nice with my hair color! The medium is roomy enough for me to wear sweater underneath. Thanks Dennis for all of your coats! I have many but this style is my favorite!!
It's a JACKET not a coat & mine is defective
The inside pocket button, hangar & cloth bag were missing. I believe this to be someone's return.
I ordered a small (I sized up) as I wanted room to wear my Talbot's light / medium weight sweaters &/or thin sweatshirts with the jacket. It has an odd fit that is very tight across the shoulders & tent like or maternity top from the bust to the edge of the coat. I know it's an a line style; however, my other a line outerwear jackets & coats fit better than this hideous jacket. The back of the jacket also has an excessive amount of material that makes me look quite heavy. I weat an xs so I know that I'm not heavy.
It's not a warm coat (Northeast FL area) & it looks, feels & weighs like a lightweight bathrobe.
So Glad I Purchased
This is the perfect coat for Texas weather. Light , soft and cozy. I am 5'1" and it is the perfect length, medium size.
I love this coat. Unfortunately, I had to return it because it was just a little too "swingy" in back. The front looked beautiful, the stand up collar, the large button....I had this style about 35 years ago from Bonwit which I got on clearance. I had it for ages and ages until my sister wore it to a party and it got "lost". This coat is the same but it really was too much material in back for me. I have another Dennis Basso coat which I've had for years which still looks like a blackglama and, still, people think it's the real thing. It's funny because people honestly treat me differently when I wear it. . . especially sales people in big name department stores. Had I gone in there with my parka on, I'm sure I'd get no attention, but, if I have on my black fur, they are falling all over me!! Anyway, if you do not mind a lot of swing in back, get it. It's beautiful.
Clip closures won't stay closed
I live in Florida and purchased this coat for traveling to Kentucky. I am currently there and the weather in the evenings is in the 30's. I am finding that the clips are too far apart and let the cold air in and the clips keep coming undone when you move around. Otherwise I love the coat. Not sure I will keep it.
Soft and warm
I wanted a faux fur that did not make me look like a polar bear and this is it. It is soft, runs small and extremely comfortable...I am ordering the plum as the black was so perfect. Good job Dennis...don't retire this coat....please
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!
