Rated 5 out of 5 by Norah glamorous and practical jacket
This jacket is just lovely! It is true to size and the sleeves are the right length for me. I am between sizes and I went for the smaller size which is just right. It is made very well. The fabric is a nice polyester, soft, and looks like a cotton sateen. Great for the fall and winter
weather here in the northwest. It is lined so will be warm as well.
Dennis Basso please do not change. Never design down to us. I wait for your presentations with happy anticipation.
Rated 5 out of 5 by peony8702 OUTSTANDING!!!
i bought this amazing little coat for my 97 yr. old mom for Easter and it is JUST STUNNING!!! This is a $1000 coat. I am a personal assistant for very wealthy people and shop for them / pick up their expensive clothing all over the WORLD and as you know we are so LUCKY to have Dennis Basso make these amazing garments for those of us that cant spend thousands on one garment!
BUY this- it was offered in Black w/ violet flowers on it which was JUST stunning as well and this is WASHABLE! It is made from this VERY expensive, NOT shiny, lightweight almost taffeta material.. BUT it really SOFT... just beautiful... all the really expensive outerwear is made from this fabric- trust me:) GET IT!:)
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mrs L B Had to return
I have many DB coats/jackets and with this one, I had to return. I ordered a Large, it's big enough for two people, sorry, the cut was not flattering on me and it just hung. I would try a smaller one but have to fit my upper arms and I compared other DB jackets sizes and don't think it would work. I think this is my first return for Dennis. Sad, I liked the large flower print and the stark white but that's about all. I am 5'6" and 165 lbs. Hope this review helps other ladies.

I had such high hopes for this jacket, I ordered both colors. The material looks cheap and the fit is off. I wouldn't recommend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by IControlMyHappiness LOVE IT, BEAUTIFUL...ORDERED BOTH COLORS
I ordered this coat in both colors, first off...either this coat is a rain slicker type coat....either you like that or you DON"T.....This coat is pricy but you are paying for the floral design which YOU CAN NOT FIND ANYWHERE.....I wore the black and people were just staring at this coat....it is a SHOW STOPPER.....I am a coat collector and have DB's other floral spring coat, several Bradley Bayou coats and several Joan trenches....If you are not a COAT LOVER you might find the price too much for you.....SO before you order be honest with your fashion style....FIT....TO me it runs true to size, I ordered my normal 1X and it fit.....the arms are fuller and the arms fit me.....COLORS....my black was a black it did not look brown/black to me....the flowers are very pretty...various shades of pink.....LENGTH....it was about 1 inch above my knee at 5'7......INSIDE COAT....NO this is not a coat to wear all day at work like a topper...WHITE COAT....the white coat is also very pretty....I like them both equally....the coat is very nice....
Rated 2 out of 5 by very happy 7 This is a RAINCOAT, Not a Topper!
I got this in the black color, and was VERY surprised to find it was made of a nylon-like material (tho states is polyester) like a shower curtain, or an umbrella fabric. I would never wear as a topper, as Dennis was selling in his presentation. The lining fabric was very clingy, and was too large for the coat, especially in the sleeves. Speaking of sleeves, Dennis has been making his sleeves very small, true in this jacket. With the excessive lining fabric, and the small sleeves, I could only wear over something sleeveless. The sleeves were very long (I'm 5'8") and if the hem was turned up, you'd get the lining fabric. Very Disappointed and Returning! Getting very tired of paying shipping both ways on disappointing products!!!!

I couldn't get this back in the bag fast enough. Mine was not a true black background, more of a brownish black, and the material is kind of a "slicker" fabric. It was suggested that this would be part of your outfit, not necessarily outer wear. No way. Too heavy/warm for that, and it's just shapeless.
Rated 4 out of 5 by FASHIONLADY NICE JACKET BUT NOT FOR ME
This is a nice rain coat/jacket in the black color. The flowers are very pretty and the black is a good dark black. This jacket was a little bigger than I expected in the XL which is my normal Basso size but this didn't do anything for me. It just hung there and made me look a little fat since there was no belt and I am busty. Sadly this is going back for the lack of style as I thought it would have.
