Despite having garnered some early buzz at the PGA Show, Devereux is a company that most will not have heard of just yet. However, offering a unique take on what style is meant to accomplish both on the course and off of it, they are certainly worth learning more about.
Meet Devereux, a contemporary new line of men’s apparel that gets it.
We understand the fashion challenges faced by men today, because we feel them too.
Whether out on the course or out on the town, you want proper threads. We went looking for clothes that could bridge the gap between modern men’s fashion and progressive golf styles.
But we came back empty-handed.
Armed with determination and inspired by Hogan, Palmer and Player – great players and great dressers – we set out to create what we could not find.
The stuff legends are made of.
And in 2013, Devereux was born
The brainchild of Robert and Will Brunner, brothers and avid golfers, the Devereux collection is premium-quality modern menswear that fits your lifestyle while keeping you in-style and authentic.
Simple-yet-sophisticated pieces in contemporary colors and Superb attention to detail – are as easy to pair as they are to wear. Clean modern styles are designed to fit properly and inspire performance, both on and off the course. Specifically tailored to move seamlessly from workday to weekend and beyond, the Devereux line is all about modern sophistication, everyday elegance and simple versatility. Clothes you can wear confidently, comfortably and above all – they make you look as great as they make you feel.
THP was able to sample a couple of the shirt offerings from the Devereaux collection. Both shirts proved to be extremely versatile from the standpoint of being worn on the course and off of it – clean styles that catch the eye with their simplicity and detail.
The Matthew is an extremely clean 65/35 Pima/Poly design with the largest portion of the shirt focused on various color options. The collar, shoulder line, and sleeves on the shirt sampled feature a dark blue palette with the collar and lower section of the shirt finished out in white. In order to round out the design, the inner collar, inner button section, and borders of the sleeves are finished in coral.
The design is well balanced and flows well with a variety of different outfit pairings both on the course and casually. The fit was true to size with a more modern athletic type cut, which the company refers to as “tailored” and not a slim fit. The Matthew wore nicely and through multiple washes had no seam, bleeding, or piling issues. Retail price on the Matthew $84.95.
The Welch is also a 65/35 Pima/Poly blend that is a design with a central stripe section across the chest to contrast the color of the main body and features a pocket as well as inner color in a third highlight color. The color palette of the version that THP was able to try was white with a steel central section and coral accents.
The Welch was the standout of the two designs sampled, as the contrast of the actual shirt layout lends itself to a variety of different body types thanks to the accents of the pocked and contrasting chest stripe. Part of the uniqueness to the Welch is the abstractly shaped pocket and button down collar – very different, but it all ties together well into a modern look with classic tendencies. Like the Matthew the fit is true to size leaning on the modern athletic cut and it works both on the course and off. The Welch too wore and washed extremely well without any piling issues or any breakdowns elsewhere. Retail price on the Welch is also $84.95.
In all the options within Devereaux’s line that THP was able to take a closer look at carry with them a unique take on what golf style should be that is a bit different than what we are in the midst of “popularly” right now. The articles feature quality materials, heavy stitching, and are comfortable along with wearing well, which should be expected given their higher end price-point.
