Dennis Basso Water Resistant Ruched Collar Jacket with Hidden Hood
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.
I have received so many compliments on this jacket! Runs true to size - dresses up any outfit. Multiple season jacket. BUY IT !!!
I got this Basso coat in xs navy.
I say buy it - it is a terrific coat and the price is a DEAL.
The fit, style and color makes it a 3 season lightweight coat.
Just makes you feel so well dressed.
The navy I have to say is the color I wanted and I'm so happy I could get it in my size. Truly brings out the blue in my eyes and I don't say that in vanity because I think brown eyes would be brought out beautifully as well.
Once again a Basso beauty, thank you so much.
Only Good News
I have purchased several Dennis coats over the years but this one is my favorite. I now have three of these jackets. I love the style, cut, material, colors, fit, and the way it frames my face and torso. It is fabulous. It also goes anywhere, anytime.
Rose Red Rocks!
This jacket is absolutely gorgeous!! The fit is tailored and the look is classic. The Rose Red is scrumptious. This is my second DB jacket and I cannot believe the high level of quality and value. Tres chic!
Bought this in black and have now come back to purchase the rose red. Love everything about it. It is very stylish and comfortable to wear. The sleeve length and length of the jacket are just right for my 5'1" frame. In fact, I cuff the sleeves up for a little different look. Wish the blue would come available in size small so I can purchase that one too!
