Deo Veritas Custom Shirt Review (Part 2)
I ordered two shirts in the end, and I went as high end as I could to truly see how luxurious Deo Veritas could go! I went with a solid white twill 140s fabric to use for a dress shirt, and a navy houndstooth cashmere blend to use for a casual shirt.

Some custom shirt companies offer more in certain areas than others. Deo Veritas has a truly fantastic overall offering. Their range of fabrics is extensive, and exotic, though more on that in a minute. Their collar selection is also superb.

How I Cloned My Best Fitting Shirt Into 3 More
It’s depressing to see how many shirts fall into that latter category. Most are off-the-rack shirts, which are an absolute crapshoot in terms of getting a good fit. But some of those “never wear” shirts are altered shirts that you actually had tailored...

Deo Veritas: Creating the James Bond Cocktail Cuff Shirt
There are now ample custom shirt makers online, but as a pre-existing customer of Deo Veritas what made this company stand out for me was a steadfast, almost stubborn desire to get everything ‘just so’. Seemingly no query or request is too much trouble.

Deo Veritas Review: Custom Tailored Dress Shirts
Made-to-measure dress shirts (often referred to as “custom” or just “MTM”) are often ideal for smaller gents who have trouble finding button down shirts that fit well off the rack. Going custom isn’t a perfect solution, and it takes some effort to get it right.

Italian Inspired Summer Style
Dapper summer style can be a tough nut to crack. The heat and humidity often makes the choice for you in terms of what you want to wear versus what you have to wear to be comfortable. I have personally been very inspired this summer by the style I’ve seen on display from Italian gentleman.

Last Vestige of Summer
As summer winds down, I’m embracing all the warm weather pieces I can’t wear in a short time. The bright gingham shirt from Deo Veritas exemplifies this. The temps will hit in the low 80s, thus the cuffed sleeves will keep me cool and soak up some sun. I threw on a lightweight vest which I opted for because I love the pink and grey combination. The inky blue jeans are matched by the tie too.

Will the Town Ever Be the Same?
Pileggi & Scorsese, both commenting in lamentation of the old Vegas becoming the neon circus of glittering amorality and guzzling consumerism that it is today, wrote in Casino, "In the old days, dealers knew your name, what you drank, what you played. Today, it’s like checkin’ into an airport. And if you order room service, you’re lucky if you get it by Thursday."
July 24, 2013
Traveling is like speed dating or a job interview. Whether you're at the airport bar or waiting at the terminal for the flight, you or someone else is bound to strike up a conversation. It's these spontaneous conversations that make me wonder why some people think it's okay to travel in the same outfit that they went to bed in the previous night.

For Good Measure
Tailoring and measurements are paramount in designing a complete wardrobe. As I’ve grown to perfect my fashion sense I’ve really focused more and more on fit. When I think of custom made pieces, I typically conjure images of my bank account being depleted.

Review: Deo Veritas Custom Dress Shirts
It's hard to find a dress shirt that fits well off the rack. Unless you're quite muscular or portly, a good deal of them are going to be very baggy on you, especially if you're a slender fellow like myself. For many, even the "slim fit" options aren't that slim.
