Dennis Basso Water Resistant Zip Front Jacket with Ruffle Trim
I am not concerned about the zipper as I will wear this jacket open. I have never been a fan of ruffles but for some reason I like this jacket. The style is different and it will be a go to jacket when dining out.
The ruffles get caught in the zipper, it is impossible to zip up. Also the quality is very poor, not up to Dennis Basso standards.
Worth sale price
I ordered this jacket in dark blue & have to agree that the zipper can get caught in the ruffles unless you are particularly careful. The jacket runs true to size & is semi-fitted as stated. I'm washing this jacket hoping that the ruffles won't be so wrinkled after a few minutes in the dryer making it easier to zip. If not, I'll return.
Cute jacket but I can't zip it up because like other reviews stated "zipper gets stuck" should have listened! Now I have to pay the return shipping once again for poor quality! Also runs small in the upper sleeves which is unusual for DB sizing!
I bought this for a gift and loved it so much, I ordered one for myself in another color. I can't wait to get mine. I love the longer length and the feminine ruffles!
I reieved this today very quickly from when I ordered it. I did the basic shipping as even THAT is kind of expensive and I ordered it on a Saturday morning on line and recieved it at my door Tusday at Noon. I live in NE Wisconsin.3 days with the cheapest shipping.. WOW! Glad I did not pay to get it here in a hurry. It already arrived in a hurry!
I am a plus size, 2 X and I would say this is a true to size jacket. I am so glad I did NOT order up to a 3X because that would have been WAY too big. I even tried it on with a thin sweater and it was perfect. I got the Navy color and it is so classy and pretty. The zipper is gold. It is not really noticeable cause the ruffle covers it up but it is shiny and pretty!. I reccomend this. I Plan on wearin it for Fall and spring. It will be perfect to throw on over yoga pants and a t shirt to run to the store and make you look kind of dressy, even with out trying. I am going back for more colors! (Shhh..Dont tell my husband) :)
zipper gets caught in ruffles!
very cute, runs big. I like it, but it's not worth more than $40 anyway. I think it's a great length for me as I"m five 8. It is cute. But, the zipper constantly gets stuck in the ruffle. I am disappointed in that, but other than that...nice jacket for early fall.
IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL JACKET BUT FOR ME THE RUFFLE NEAR THE ZIPPER WAS GETTING CAUGHT AND THE SLEEVES WERE TO LONG AND WITH THE RUFFLE HARD TO SHORTEN. I HAVE OTHER JACKETS FROM DENNIS BASSO AND WILL CONTINUE TO PURCHASE HIS PRODUCTS , JUST NOT THIS ONE.
Very nice jacket!
Am very pleased with this jacket! LOVE the style...Love the fit...Love the color (I got it in Champagne)! I especially love the ruffles...it feels very 'grown up-girly' when I wear it...without being too much. (In fact, I just wore this yesterday and got a very nice compliment from a lady at a store!) :)
Another great jacket from Dennis...Am glad I got this!
Didn't want to return it but
Unfortunatly for me, the raspberry color was off. I have red hair & fair skin so a clear red works better. I really liked the jacket but am returning for something else, I love Dennis Basso's clothes as I have 3 coats & 2 jackets hanging in my closet now, I have purchased his line for over 6 or 7 years thru QVC and have been more than satisfied. I too wish his clothing line was made in the USA instead of China. I try to purchase USA made clothing over the China made. The fit is wonderful for me & very generous. I wear a Medium in all his clothing and am a 10-14 size, depending on the manufacturer. I'll keep on watching & buying!!!
love this jacket!
I love everything about this jacket....the ruffles make it more girly-girl, the length is wonderful/covers a lot, the zip front...all add up to the perfect springtime jacket. The pockets ARE usable, just need to snip the threads. I found the fit perfect, actually a bit forgiving around the hips, and I'm on the higher side of 2X. Very happy!!
This is a nice coat I wish however the material had a sheen to it, and it appears like a flat color to me, in ivory, but it is made well. One problem the arms are tight on me I wear a 2x,
and I am a small 2x, the pockets are usable they are sewn shut. I would appreciate it if pockets were not sewn shut as I have a hard time undoing the stitching, who's idea was that ? all in all it is a nice coat but the arms are a little uncomfortable and tight.
