Dennis Basso Water Resistant Zip Front Jacket with Tuck Details
THIS JACKET IS SO PRETTY
I got this jacket in blue and really like it. My favorite feature is the covered zipper that looks like the other vertical pleats. The collar is feminine as well as the sleeves, however I wish the sleeves were a little shorter. I love wearing it and feel pretty.
This is a great jacket. I ordered the teal & it is perfect. Yes, the sleeves are a bit poufy, but that adds to the style. My only suggestion would be to have a hook & loop at the top rather than the snap, as that shows when not snapped shut. It detracts a bit from the overall classiness of the garment, but is tolerable. Thanks, Dennis!
Lovely great color
Nice fabric a little tight around waist in medium . So I returned it , the large would be too big. Sorry to have to return it
Beautiful jacket but--sleeves too long and loose.
As are all Basso jackets this one is beautiful in evey way except for the sleeves which are too long and loose . Sorry to have to return it but would be costly to have altered.
I received my jacket from Dennis Basso and it's absoultely beautiful. I bought the teal and it looks so rich. Perfect weight and very fashionable. I would recommend this for all ages. I hope Dennis makes it in black so I can purchase another one.
Ladies this is a winner with excellent value.
I received my jacket today and absolutely love it! I don't understand the complaints about the sleeves. They are poofy but add to the jacket. I love the pleats in the collar.
I received this from waitlist in cobalt blue in XL and I sized down and the fit is still generous and will fit over a sweater or blazer. The sleeves are a little long for me but they push up so its OK. The quality of the fabric, zipper and workmanship is excellent.
The style could go with jeans or a very dressy outfit. Very flattering too. This is the quality I have come to expect from Dennis Basso.
I Was a Teal Butterball
I was so excited to receive this jacket yesterday, but when I tried it on, I was so disappointed. It is a very well-made jacket and the pleating is beautiful. However, because I happen to be short and chubby, I looked like a teal turkey all trusssed up for the oven. So all of you short, chubbies out there, this is NOT the design for you. I thought the vertical lines would be slimming, but the collar and my own girth made me look like a beach ball.
Too bad because the craftsmanship was lovely and the color was saturated and beautiful. Sadly, beach ball was NOT the look for which I was going. It's already packed up and ready to go to the post office on Monday. <sniff, sniff>
A Great Go-To with Lots of Style
I ordered this jacket in small purple. The fit is perfect and the color is a beautiful hue of purple. I really like the detailing of this jacket. What I especially like is the pleating on the collar and the sleeve details. I like the puff sleeves. This is what differentiates this jacket from the norm. I also have a Marc Bouwer jacket that has the same sleeve detail.
This will be my go-to jacket. It will elevate a pair of jeans and tee.
Sleeves are a bit puffy
I ordered this jacket in the purple and really like it--the fit and cut of the jacket is very nice-- the pleating work is nice also. As far as the sleeves go-- I just rolled up the elastic cuff one time (the cuffs are not perfectly even or smooth beause of the elastic)-- it looks fairly decent and took some of the "puffiness" out of the sleeves. I'm not sure how many ladies would like this idea, but it works for me. This way I am able to keep the jacket that I really like instead of returning it.
I love it!
As a former fashion designer, impressed with the quality of fabrication, details and design/styling. This is my second coat of his.....just love it!
Another Great Jacket from Dennis
I just received this jacket today. It is much better in person than on TV. I love love love it!!! I haven't purchased a bad Dennis Basso yet.
