For April, we received the basics in grey and dark blue!
Our first basic are the socks. We love the neutral pattern of dark grey, maybe black lines on grey.
The socks are made with a blend of cotton, polyester, and elastic. There’s not a lot of loose threads inside the socks, so less risk of toenails pulling on something. The elastic is snug, but doesn’t dig into the skin.
Next is a pair of boxer briefs which came in navy blue with a grey 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 (September 2020)! Yes, this subscription box reminds you to throw away your old underwear! 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. And the color doesn’t bleed in the laundry either.
The last basic item for this month is an dark grey 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. 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 September 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, or to workout. They look good, they feel good, and they are so versatile.
We also like that although they are branded, the logo is small and subtle.
My husband was, once again, really happy with his Basic Man. Dark tees are always needed and he really likes his new socks as they look amazing with his fancy black shoes. As soon as he gets his new package, one, or more, pair of socks and underwear find their way to the bin. He also really likes that the Basic Man logo is small and discrete, and everything fits perfectly.
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.
