Just a quick review for anyone considering Deo Veritas. I usually order from ProperCloth or my bespoke tailor in Hong Kong which I usually get to make my suits, both of which I'm happy with. However, I decided to try Deo Veritas after reading about unfused collars.
Firstly, the shirt arrived with some measurements .75 inches off what I specified.
As for the standard of construction, the stitching is very rough at about 13 stitches per inch and in many places not straight and not aligned to the pattern of the fabric. Fine dress shirts are usually stitched at 18-20 stitches per inch. Some reviewers claimed that they match the patterns of the fabric well, but on my shirts neither the cuffs nor the yoke match the pattern of the sleeves.
In addition, they are slow - 29 days from the date I placed my order to the date the order was despatched. This doesn't include the time it was in transit with the courier.
For $140 you can have shirt made to a much higher standard by storefront tailors like Proper Cloth or in Hong Kong, e.g.. at Lord's. Those tailors also offer a better selection of fabrics, in my opinion.
Update: I was contacted by someone from Deo Veritas offering to fix the problems with my shirts and do the order again for free. They also explained that they are not a bespoke tailor, but that they spend a lot of time on each order to try to get the right fit for the customer and take into account any special requests. So on the customer service side, quite good in my opinion. If you don't have a prior relationship with a bespoke tailor or you haven't perfected your fit with other online shirt-makers, their offering may work well for you. The quality will be much better than off-the-rack shirts, in any case.
