Dennis Basso Water Resistant Ruched Collar Jacket with Hidden Hood
Preview Your Review
I ordered this coat last year as soon as I saw it, love at first sight! Everything about it was perfect. I anxiously awaited my delivery man, and his knowing smile (his wife also has on-going deliveries) as he'd hand me my package. It finally came, and I lovingly checked it out...everything perfect...the style, color, workmanship. and then I put it on and felt so happy. especially with the ruched collar. It felt almost snug, and I would've exchanged it for larger size, but a quick check on computer said not available. So I kept it for 3 more weeks, then sadly returned it, in hopes I'd be able to get it later. Kept checking on/off, then today I got all excited, as it was on computer again.....but only XS and XL!!! So here I am writing this review for my much wanted dream to come true!!! Can you help me Mr. Basso...possibly bring it back 'cause of such good comments?
I give this item 10 stars even though I don't have the coat YET!!!
This jacket is extremely flattering. It really is a wonderful all-weather jacket because the material locks in your body heat (obviously I would wear a heavy coat for winters in CT). Fashionable, functional and fits true to size. Love it (and so does everybody that sees it on). Thank you!
Nice raincoat. Well made; nice fabric. Even though the garment measurements indicated I would wear an XS, I ordered a Small. It fits perfectly. Glad I got the Rose.
I ordered this jacket in pink and black, and everything about them is perfect. I love Dennis Basso and his clothing is always made with quality and care, I for one appreciate this especially when ordering off tv or online. These jackets fit me so nice, the material is not stiff and cheap, it's quality and I love the hood that's hidden in the collar. Also, it's water resistant...like I said PERFECT!
Love this Jacket!
I am sad to see this one on clearance! I bought it first in the rose red and later went back and bought the black. This jacket is adorable with the face framing ruffle look collar with hidden hood. A perfect coat for us southern gals who need something lighter weight. I am sad the small in blue is sold out! Please bring this style back with more colors....I will buy them all!
Pretty and Practical
I got this coat to replace an old anorak-type one. I was attracted by the style and the price. It is just right for a light coat and looks wonderful. Dennis Basso rules! However, I don't think he offers many, if any, coats in petite sizing. Unless coats are petite, the sleeves usually are too long for me. I got this in XS (I usually wear a 6), and because the cuffs can be turned back it is fine.
I bought this jacket in the pink in an xs. I'm 107lbs, but 5'6", with very long arms. Buying clothes without trying them on, can be difficult. The fit is perfect. If anything, the sleeves are a little long, but can be turned back. I am bringing this to Florida in 2 weeks and I think it will be perfect!
Another Great Basso
I was needing a simple rain resistant jacket with a hidden hood. When I saw this one at the clearance price, I thought I would give it a try. It is the same great quality as all of my other DB items. All of the style details take it up a notch from an average jacket. I especially like that the hood is so hidden that no one would ever know it is tucked away. It runs true to the DB sizing and the fabric seems to be quite durable. I am overall very pleased with the purchase.
I got this jacket in the Rose Red, very pretty! I am 5'3", 117-120 lbs., not busty, and the XS fits like a glove even over a sweater, and is not tight. I love this jacket and the color is bright and cheerful. I have, including this jacket, 4 Dennis Basso coats. Love them all.
Excellent rain jacket
I own several D. Basso jackets and always love the style, quality, and the color selection. This jacket is a beautiful coral, and I was so glad to have it during my Thanksgiving week with family. It's definitely rain resistant, and the light weight fabric makes it a handy choice over sweatshirts or sweaters when you need some rain protection. I also own this jacket in green. You can't go wrong with this purchase - I would love it with a larger hood, but the small one works too.
Snap this up...good for petites!
While I like most of the clothes I've gotten from QVC, I find their outerwear disappointing, especially because it's not proportioned for petites. The quality is very nice--I'm 5'1" and medium in regular stores, XS/S in QVC sizes and the XS fits well--I could layer light cardigans under it without it being too tight. The sleeves were not overly long (and you can fashionably fold the cuffs without it looking like you did it only because the sleeves were too long) and it's overall well-proportioned for me. My last black raincoat started looking "grey" so I had to replace it for a likely rainy and cool Fall season. This was a great deal!
Ordered my usual XL but it fits too tight across the bust. Deep pink color is pretty but the collar with hood inside is not comfortable. All in all, not a good choice.
