A89495 - Dennis Basso Water Resistant Trench Coat w/Belt& Button Front
Bright Lightweight Coat
I ordered the orange and it is a pretty bright color. I like the trench style of the jacket and it serves the purpose I wanted it for - a lightweight rain jacket. It is thinner than I expected (not thick enough for a cooler rainy day) and it runs a little large. I should have listened to the other reviewers and ordered down a size.
The jacket is truly a "swing" or "bell" shape. When I cinch the waist it really blouses out in the back, but that is a flatttering shape, especially over skirts or dresses. Overall, I think it is definitely worth the price and I will enjoy wearing it this Spring and maybe even into the summer.
The lining is so bright it shows through the orange trench. I can only imagine how weird it will look when it gets wet! The orange is a bright saturated orange. I usually wear a large and the medium fit perfectly but sadly, it was returned..
Nice fabric, nice style, Great color. Would have liked the pockets a little further to the sides and lower. However, the sleeves were too long to be shortened without the expense of a seamstress and speaking of...there were dark marks all over the coat that I couldn't get out by spot cleaning (they looked to me like seamstress marks where the belt loops & pocket corners were placed) and the shoulder strap stitching was already coming apart. SO...back it went.
I bought the orange and mine fit true to size with the sleeves being a little long. I think the lining is so bright and pretty so will roll them back. Mr. Basso gives us clothing items that have a designer flair and they are quality items.
Beautiful Trench Coat!
I bought this trench coat in color orange. Normally wear a size XL, but down sized to a large after reading some of the reviews. My coat fits nice except arms a little long but I can fold them under or over. This trench coat is made with much quality. Seams are strong and details are beautiful. Best yet I got it on sale. Thanks Dennis and QVC !!!
I bought this in Orange, Size small would normally wear med. I have long arms and it is hard to find jackets with more length in the arms. Love this color, fit is perfect,lining is crazy and it makes you smile. $36.00 what a steal
Much too Large From Waist to Hem
I was very excited to receive this raincoat in the orange. Was very disappointed in the way it fits. I tried wearing it one day to work and there is just too much fabric in the skirt. Definitely not a flattering look. I had ordered a small. I love everything else about the coat, but unfortunately it has to go back because of the way I look and feel in it. Sorry, Dennis.
Like the coat read reviews and noted everyone said they were larger than your size. Normally an xl so I ordered a L. It was still too large but I can wear it wish I had more colors available. Now I have 3 orange tone coats. Like it enuf to keep. Get the size right and it would b a 5 not ..4
I bought this coat during a warm spell and so glad I did because our weather turned cold and I have been able to wear it most days since it arrived. A quick tumble in the dryer on low heat with a spray of water got out the few wrinkles from shipping. I bought the orange and have had multiple compliments on most days. Everyone says what a bright cheery color on our gloomy, rainy, cold days, etc. I was somewhat reluctant to buy clothing online due to sizing not always being consistent but I bought medium since reviews said it is generously sized and it is. Lots of extra room in back. I feel very stylish and comfortable. My first Dennis Basso purchase and it will not be my last. I love this coat. Much better than my usual black or khaki.
Sweet & Charming Coat
Received my coat today in orange and it is a real winner. The weight is perfect and the color is outstanding. The lining is very charming and well made. Thanks Dennis for another great purchase!
Dennis Does It Again
I have nothing but Dennis Basso coats and jackets in my closet. I work in a school and I always get compliments on my coats and jackets. Now I received this one in the orange today. Right out of the box I loved it. Tried it on and the size was perfect, as usual, and then I read that this was picked for a QVC Quality Control inspection. Thought that was great. I pressed it tonight to take out the few wrinkles from packing and when removing the little packets in the pockets, I found a wrigleys spearment gum wrapper. Do the QC people chew gum????? Oh well, I'll proudly wear it and will expect more compliments!
I love this coat. After seraching countless sites for a fashionable plus size coat that was also reasonably priced, I found this gem. This is not my first Dennis Basso product; the workmanship is great and it arrived with a hanger and storage bag!
