The Deo Veritas Fall Lookbook Amidst A Brooklyn Renaissance

Deo Veritas Fall Lookbook

Since it became part of New York City back in 1898, and for a large part of its his­to­ry, Brook­lyn has been seen as some­what of a step child to the glitz, glam­our, and show­biz of near­by Man­hat­tan which sits just a stones throw away, across the East Riv­er.

In con­trast with the cos­mopoli­tan vibe of the City, Brook­lyn has a unique per­sona that orig­i­nates from its diverse cul­tur­al roots, and work­ing class cul­ture.

Style and fashion in Brooklyn.

Style and fash­ion have also been bene­fac­tors of Brooklyn’s cul­tur­al renais­sance, both on the street and at per­ma­nent fix­tures. Shop­ping choic­es include every­thing from vin­tage finds at Greenpoint’s leg­endary flea mar­kets, to the famous Night Bazaar which is set to make its tri­umphant return this Sep­tem­ber.

More and more inde­pen­dent fash­ion design­ers and home-grown artists are choos­ing to call Brook­lyn home. Not only are they design­ing their own lines but every effort is being made to craft these arti­sanal prod­ucts local­ly as well.

The vibe here is con­ta­gious, and the neigh­bor­hoods are authen­tic and full of life. There is seri­ous inspi­ra­tion here, and an evo­lu­tion of style that’s very dif­fer­ent than any of New York’s oth­er bor­oughs.

Made in Brooklyn:  Our 2016 Fall Lookbook.

A trip to Brook­lyn means a walk, or at the very least, a dri­ve across the Brook­lyn Bridge. This is a place where both tourists and res­i­dents alike come to unwind and take in some incred­i­ble views.  For more than 130 years, the Brook­lyn Bridge has been the borough’s link to down­town.

Tru­ly an archi­tec­tur­al mar­vel that took 14 years to build, the bridge itself is an Amer­i­can land­mark.  It’s most notable fea­ture — gigan­tic gran­ite tow­ers that span over 1600 ft.

With this icon­ic back­drop, we’d like to intro­duce Deo Ver­i­tas’ first fea­ture Look Book — shot through­out Brooklyn’s West Water­front Dis­trict. This col­lec­tion is a curat­ed selec­tion of fun­da­men­tal clas­sics and con­tem­po­rary favorites, in per­fect har­mo­ny with the place you call home – Brook­lyn or oth­er­wise.

As icon­ic as it’s back­drop, this crisp, light blue OCBD Uni­ver­si­ty Stripe is an Amer­i­can clas­sic. Per­fect as a fall tran­si­tion­al; it’s lov­ing­ly warm yet still cool enough for tak­ing in that fleet­ing sum­mer sun­shine.

Enjoy serene walks along the cob­ble stone streets of Williams­burg, and take in some awe-inspir­ing views dressed in our Navy Ging­ham. This sta­ple shirt is a favorite from our Bam­boo col­lec­tion, and fea­tures a ver­sa­tile pat­tern per­fect for almost any occa­sion.

This favorite from Sok­tas — the Mod­e­na — Red Hound­stooth Check, has a sub­tle micro-check pat­tern that looks sub­dued from a dis­tance. Up close, the vari­a­tions in col­or reveal a rich hound­stooth pat­tern.

Shown here with a full cut­away col­lar and bar­rel cuffs.

Walk along­side the prom­e­nade of the East Riv­er wear­ing our Clas­sic White Poplin. This fab­ric is a spe­cial mix of bam­boo and cot­ton, impec­ca­bly soft and silky smooth with a great drape. What makes bam­boo spe­cial is the enhanced abil­i­ty to wick mois­ture away from your body, keep­ing you cool and dry through­out the day.

Our pre-designed dress shirt collection — perfectly suited for work and play. 

Own­ing a con­do unit with access to a beau­ti­ful­ly appoint­ed ter­race is on every NYC house hunter’s list.  Spec­tac­u­lar views and even swanki­er par­ties are the obvi­ous advan­tages. We’ve got the two per­fect shirts for the occa­sion.

Try either the Nor­wich — Dark Blue Check (left) or the Alex — Laven­der Glen Plaid (right), each fea­ture ele­gant plaid checks that make for a per­fect work / play tran­si­tion­al. Soft to the touch and light­weight, they’ll match the vibe of any rooftop par­ties you’ll be attend­ing this fall.
