Basic MAN is a men’s monthly subscription box that will send you three basics: socks, boxer-briefs and a t-shirt. The box is $19.99 a month and shipping is free for US subscribers and they ship worldwide ($5 to Canada). All you have to do is to choose your size and you are set! Styles will vary from month to month, but nothing too crazy!
For September, we received the basics in purple and grey!
DEAL: Save 50% on your first month with coupon code HELLO50.
The socks are long but they are soft and not too thin. We love the darker color and the cross pattern. The logo (a palm tree) is stitched to the socks, but it’s subtle and cute. The socks are made with a blend of cotton, polyester, and elastic.
The inside is well made and barely any stitches where a bad nail can get caught in!
Next is a pair of boxer briefs which came in a lovely shade of purple with a grey elastic band. The fabric is quite light and soft. My husband really likes the light feeling, while keeping everything in check. The color is amazing as we both like purples! It’s a nice change from the usual black underwear that is easier to grab at the store when you run out of decent underwear. This box deals with this problem by making sure you always have nice new underwear every month!
As usual, it has an expiry date! Yes, this subscription box reminds you to throw away your old underwear! It’s pretty good, you have almost two years worth of wear! It says to wash in cold water, but we’ve been washing all the Basic Man socks and boxer briefs in hot water and they haven’t lost any of their color, their soft feel, or their elasticity.
The last basic item for this month is a black t-shirt. It’s a simple crew neck tee and it also came with an expiry date! The fabric is a blend of polyester and cotton. Basic Man’s t-shirts are pre-washed, so no worries about shrinkage and it makes them soft and light right out of the bag. We are also happy to say that Basic Man’s tee can go through a lot of wash cycle without losing their colors or shape. And the colors don’t bleed in the laundry, even in warm water (delicate cycle).
It’s good until May 2020. My husband is always happy with his Basic Man’s shirt as he can wear them in different occasion : under a dress shirt, to work in the backyard, to go to bed, to hang out with friends. They look good, they feel good, and they are versatile.
My husband was, once again, really happy with his Basic Man. As soon as he gets his new package, one (or more) pair of socks find their way to the bin and get replaced with fun, yet simple socks. And he also likes getting a new colorful pair of underwear!
Basic Man is a great monthly subscription box for men who don’t have time to go shopping for new basic items, or who hates it. It’s easy, the items are exactly what you need while being classy and comfortable, and the quality is very nice. This subscription is a great value to renew your basic wardrobe without worrying about it. We like that this subscription is true to the basic, in colors and design, and any guy would enjoy it.
