A16632 - Dennis Basso Suede Coat w/Faux Fur Shawl Collar& Grommet Trim
Wanted to Like But...
I just couldn't get past the matted look of the faux fur. It didn't matter how much I tried to "fluff" it, it would not cooperate. The fux fur on the sleeves was pointing every way except down, same around the hem of the jacket. I like the jacket itself, but I'm returning because I cannot get past how bad the faux fur looks. I see others who loved it and thought I would give it a chance - I watched the video and looked at this coat for weeks. But areas of the hem were without fur at all, other parts of the hem just looked awful in the way it was sticking together, sticking out from the hem. It looked like a coat that has been rolled in a ball and thrown on a closet floor for a while and then hung up. Again, fur was going in every direction and trying to fluff it didn't help at all.
Just received this coat in time for Trick-or-Treating with the kids and I had so many compliments on it already! I love this coat so does my husband. My daughter (who is 8 yrs old) and my mother (who is 60) both want this coat and play argue over who will get it when I'm done with it. But I probably will wear this one until it falls apart. I did follow others' advice and ordered up, I am usually a Large or XL, so I got the XL, and it will be great even with a sweater under it.
Wow, love the look
Arrived today, this is my first Basso purchase, I had ordered the XS - what arrived was marked S, but fit me perfectly. Great price for stylish and fun brown suede jacket - plan to wear with jeans going out with the girls night. Nice lining, not for cold, cold weather, but nicely finished look. I love the cute pockets, too small to stuff my hands into, but okay for a lipstick, a few folded bills,etc. They are a beautiful accent to the look of the overall jacket with the grommet trim. Also liked the storage bag that came with it. Great value, so glad I grabbed this at clearance price.
What a Pleasant Surprise
Excellent Coat! Received it today and I am sooooo happy with the quality. I gave the fur trim on the coat a light brushing to fluff it up and it's perfect. I can't wait for the cold weather to begin so I can wear it. It's so Boho Chic!!!!
It's a great, warm jacket. Got the brown, waiting for the black to be available to order as well. You'll love it!
I Love This Coat!!!
Wow!!! Awesome coat! Looks EXACTLY the same in person as on air! Perfect fit! A+ all the way!!!
So HOT - but order true size!
My coat arrived today and my husband happened to be home. He wanted me to try it on. We both loved the coat! It is very well made and looks fantastic - the black is very sexy. One problem with this one - sizing. I have about 5 or 6 Basso coats and usually order a size down so there isn't alot of extra room and they fit the way I like. This is one that I should have ordered my true size. It closes if I wear a tank top or a t-shirt, but with a sweater, not so much. I love this coat but am faced with a dilemma - do I order a size larger in the brown or pray that the black comes back into stock?? Great coat - just order your true size and you'll absolutely love it!
I couldn't wait for the door bell to ring and it did just about 10 minutes ago. The UPS delivered my coat. I love the suede and the fur. I disagree with other comments about this jacket. It is very unique and quite impressive. Trouble is it's too small. They only had the black in a Large and usually I wear a large in Dennis Basso coats. I couldn't close it. If I order a larger size it is on back order. If I can get the size right I would get this coat in a hot minute. Very Sharp looking. You won't see anybody else wearing this jacket.
Very cute, I guess you have to understand the look Dennis was going for, you either understand it or you don't, in which case you can choose not to buy it. I think it is very stylish, the chocolate brown is so rich looking.
Not Quite Sure
I was so anxious to receive this coat. It definately is a "fun" coat, which I expected. Although, when ordering, I looked at the size shown and assumed that if a medium was a 44 bust that a small would be 41 according to the measurement chart. I have several other Dennis Basso coats and others, but for some reason, thought this should be more of a form fit, so I ordered small - that may have been a mistake also. Usually you either like something, or you don't, but this one - I'm just not sure about the look or the size yet (received today). Not sure if I would recommend or not. I'ts different and yes the pockets are unusually small, (you can not fit your entire hand in the pocket) not sure why that is. But it is a cute coat.
The fur IS cute!!!
I disagree with several of ther reviewers. The fur It's not cheap looking it's fun & interesting, like Mongolian fur. The shape & fit is awesome & the suede is very soft. It's a beautiful expensive looking coat. Wish the pockets were an inch or so wider, can't fit my whole hand in, otherwise I'd have given 5 stars..
worst purchase ever
Mr. Basso could have used better faux fur to make the jacket look richer looking.
