Deo Veritas


Shirtmaker: Deo Veritas

Shirt Ordered: Pompei - Carolina Blue Gingham Check

Thread Count: 80

Made in: Hong Kong

Price (including shipping): $85

Fit: Sleeves 1/2" too long

Pros:
* Broad customization options
* Fast shipping
* Strong overall value

Cons:
* Cannot order a shirt with traditional single button cuff
* "Shirt Designer" tool frustrating to use; didn't save selections
* Button stitching could be tightened up

Nota Bene: Deo Veritas was the only shirtmaker we reviewed that offered a sewn (vs. fused) collar option. Consider us in the minority, but we strongly endorse non-fused collars, and for a mere $9 upcharge this is a no-brainer.

Ideal Customer: Guys looking for crossover dress/casual shirts for a very good value.

Tasting Notes: We of little faith almost dismissed Deo Veritas strictly on the basis of its website design, which is aesthetically stuck in the '90s. But lo and behold, they made our favorite shirt! Choosing the sewn collar option provides an artfully disheveled dress look, and if you throw it in the wash and let it pucker slightly in the dryer, it can moonlight as a first-rate casual shirt.
