Rated 1 out of 5 by BeauteeCr Beautiful But Defective
I bought this coat as a gift to my twenty five years old daughter for Christmas. Unfortunately, it is defective. On the first and only day that she wore it returning to school after the holidays as a teacher, the zipper kept oppening midway. She unzipped and re-zipped the coat three times for it to reopen again and again. Also, to our surprise, the fur collar, on one side couldn't stay on. This is a miserable situation for my daughter to deal with, in that cold January day in New York. I am embarrassed, I bragged about the Dennis Basso's coats so much to be now complaining about one being defective. I have to make it up to my daughter, and that gift is not going to be a Dennis Basso.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Michele1021 Beautiful coat that just does not last
This coat is so beautiful (and it is warm even in the Ohio winter)-BUT... The first one I bought had a faulty zipper within the first 30 days so I sent it back for a replacement because I really love the style and fit. The second one almost made it through one season but has started to deconstruct. The zipper won't stay closed, the buttons are falling off, the fur collar does not stay on, the lining is coming unstitched, the pockets have holes in the lining and the strings that hold the belt on have broken loose. Part of me is tempted to have it "remade" because I really do think it is an attractive coat but the expense does not seem worth it. It was a "daily wear" coat for me, though I am not necessarily hard on my coats (I work in a professional environment) usually keeping my coats until the style no longer suits. Maybe if you only wore it on occasion it would last for a while otherwise I would recommend a pass on this one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by historybuff GREAT COAT!
I looked at this coat many times, and read the reviews. I finally ordered it, but was prepared that it might not be exactly what I had hoped. IT IS OUTSTANDING! Ordered the dark olive in 3x. The material is rich; the fit is perfect; the style is stunning. I must have gone to 5 stores last winter, and never found a coat as attractive as this and fit as well as this one.
Don't hesitate on this one.

I just got this yesterday and literally my jaw dropped open. This is a beautiful coat. I ordered the M. It is very slimming and rich looking. I love it! It's worth the money for sure.
Rated 3 out of 5 by ShopAholic I like the style but sleeves too long
I was so looking forward to getting this coat. The sleeves are too long and the cost of the coat plus alterations gets too expensive. In the video I thought the coat looked slightly A-line when Dennis removed the belt on the full size model, but it's not. I'm pear shape so need a little extra room in the hips. I ordered my usual size large. The coat is a little to big at the top and a little fitted in the hips. Unfortunately I have to return it. I'm sure this coat looks great on the right body frame.

Quality 'wool' coat- heavy and warm, and such a great color, a very dark olve. Gets comments from people, as it is not something seen frequently. Love it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by poochie444 Exactly What I Was Looking For
What a beautiful coat!! I love the color and the fit is perfect. I'm 175 lbs. 5'6'' and it looks as if it was made just for me. The material feels like a fine wool and even belted the shape is very flattering.I'll love and wear this for years.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JennMSU Love! Exceeded expectations!
I love this coat! It's heavy, but not overwhelming. It fits like a glove. I ordered a M. I'm typically a M in most things (5'5", 160 lbs, 32DD, usually a size 10). I ordered another DB coat last year and while I love it, it's a bit roomy so based on that and other reviews I was thinking of going down to a S because I could in my other coat. This one has more of a shape so I'm glad that I stuck with the M. I haven't worn it in cold weather yet (I live in MI so I know it's coming), but I feel that this will be good enough to wear outside in the bitter cold. I wouldn't wear it shoveling snow, but definitely out-and-about and I will be toasty. Also the belt ties so easily, probably because there is a good weight to the material. Thanks, Dennis!
Rated 4 out of 5 by nodoover Very Beautiful Jacket
I ordered this in the olive was was impressed as soon as I took it out of the box. It is very beautiful, both in color and fabric as well as the unique design. Unfortunately, I had to return it. It seems I am becoming more and more sensitive to fabric and the "fur" collar was just too itchy for me to keep it. If that was not the case I would have given it 5 stars
Hope others will be able to enjoy it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2purple Beyond cool!
I ordered this in the dark olive and I love it! It fits perfect except the sleeves are a little too long. I like the fabric, the shade of olive and I love the buttons that give it a very cool look. I will wear it without the fur collar because I like the look better but it's nice to have the option. I also like the tie belt. I'm very happy with this purchase!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mommy Bear Lovely but runs big.
This arrived yesterday. I was pleased with the look of the fur and the fabric is lovely. I found it to run very large. I typically wear a large when I buy a top and I wear a size 14 pant. I am tall 5'll" but the large was just too big even when considering a heavy sweater or blazer underneath so I am sending it back for a medium. Very excited to get it!
Rated 4 out of 5 by peenutbutta Hmmmm!
I ordered this coat in black size XL. This coat fit with no room for thicker clothing. Also, the collar of the coat was just weird...it seemed too wide and much for my taste. This is going back tomorrow.
