Bivolino has such a long and rich history, which started way back in 1954. The Belgian company was founded by brothers Louis and Jacques Byvoet who initially started with standard, mass-produced shirts. After about a decade, the company took a new turn and started developing ways to bring more customized shirts to their customers. Their website was launched in 1997 and the rest, as they say, is history.
This company has been known to provide high-quality custom shirts and their custom shirts are embroidered with the squirrel company logo. Their customizable products are shirts (for men and women) and boxers. The prices for men’s custom dress shirts start at £59 and at £51 for women’s custom shirts. Custom boxers start at £26. They also offer accessories like cufflinks and ties, which are priced at £5 and £29 respectively.
There are several fabric options provided for the custom shirts. Some of the material/weave includes Cotton, Silk, Polyester, Viscose and Linen. Aside from the typical solid, basic colors, you can also choose from an assortment of great patterns for the shirt. Some of the designs and patterns include stripes, checks, florals and paisleys. There are more prints and designs that you can mix and match with fashion shirts.
They have a 3D Virtual Design system that lets you go through the 6-step design process easily. You can customize several parts like the buttons, cuffs, collars and sleeve style. You can go back and forth with the tabs and change the styles and try out different design combinations. Although there are no zoom options, there are different views available so you can inspect the shirt more closely and in different angles. The 3D image does display a pretty good representation of the custom shirt. It takes approximately 3 weeks to produce and ship the custom order. And the company does not accept returns and exchanges for any custom order, except when there are tailoring errors made.
Overall, Bivolino has definite tenure in the industry and they do provide great options as well as a good range of design styles in their website. However, their website can use a little sprucing up, from the overall layout to the context of the pages.
