Dennis Basso Water Resistant Pointed Hem Trench Coat with Belt
The coat is LOVELY! Great weight for Spring and travel.
I am very short so the uneven hem is out of scale for me
but I still love it and hubby says it looks good.
For the price this is a great value.
An upstyled trench coat for those of us who like just a bit of a tweak on the traditional.
I was excited to get this coat but a little concerned that it might look too overpowering on me since I am just under 5'3" and 111 pounds. I ordered the blue in XXS and when I tried it on I just LOVED IT!!
The color is beautiful and the style is so chic and unusual. Even in the XXS, the arms did run a bit long, and I really can't hem them because the buckle around the cuffs is to close to the end, but I can manage with them a little long. As such, I also just got another Dennis Basso trench in XXS and the arms ran a bit more true to size....would suggest greater consistency in cut/length.
Lastly, from a design/style perspective, I felt the collar was a little boring...thought it could have used something a little more dramatic (but nor overly so) like making the lapel a little larger or something.
Oh, and before I forget....not quite sure what is going on with the belt. It's like I got a belt for a 3X or something? When I was putting it on I was like, "okay, am I suppose to be doing something special with this belt because them gave me way too much length". When I put it in the tightest hole, I must have 3-4 feet of belt handing down....oddest thing. I need to call Customer Service to check on that.
Overall...I'm keepn' it....LOVE the unique style!!
This coat arrived today, and boy was I happy when I put it on. Not only is the fit spot on, but it has a great look. I am 5'9.... and between 8 to 10 in sizing. I bought the black med.. so that I could use a couple of layers under if wanted. I also have long arms... and the sleeve length is perfect as well.
This is my first Dennis Basso purchase, and I can definitely say not my last!
What a treasure this smart trench is! It flows, flatters even my 5'4" frame, is craftly designed and very well made. LOVE it! I bought it in both colors because I loved the design so much. I highly recommend this jacket. Will wear it for a long time to come. Get this NOW! BTW - I'm about 125 pounds and 5'4" and bought it in XXS. Fits perfectly.
OMG OMG OMG
Omg! I LOVE this coat. I ordered the Medium in slate blue. I am 5'4", 135. I am a QVC 10 in jackets. I have a VERY hour glass figure. I look amazing in this trench. I cannot believe how sophisticated I look in this. The shape is very flattering. I am wearing it this week to our corporate office in LA . Who says you have to be a California gal to rock this fashionable coat! We southern girls can now have the same fabulous style! Thank you Dennis!!!!!
