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 November, we received the basics in light blue and white!
DEAL: Save 50% on your first month with coupon code HELLO50.
The socks are long but they are soft, not too thin, and they are adorable! The logo (a palm tree) is stitched to the socks, but it’s subtle and cute. The little mustaches are perfect for those participating in the Movember, and even if you don’t they are lovely. The socks are made with a blend of cotton, polyester, and elastic.
The inside is well made and the stitches from the mustaches will not get caught in your toe nails. The elastic band is not too tight, but it holds well to a lot of wear, even with bigger calves.
Next is a pair of boxer briefs which came in baby blue with a black elastic band. The fabric is quite light and soft. My husband really likes the light feeling, while keeping everything in check.
As usual, it has an expiry date (July 2020)! 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 (I’m lazy) and they haven’t lost any of their color, their soft feel, or their elasticity.
The last basic item for this month is a white t-shirt with a navy blue pocket. I wasn’t sure about the pocket, but my husband really likes it and because he loves wearing white shirts, it gives it a fun detail. He wouldn’t wear it under a white shirt though. 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. After getting these shirts for a couple of months, 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 so 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 simply designed socks. He’s always excited about his new socks as they look good with any shoes and pants he’s wearing. He’s always also really happy to get a new pair of underwear, and he really liked the colorful pocket on his new t-shirt.
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 taking time to go to the store. 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.
