For June, we received the basics in turquoise and white!
Our first basic are the socks. They have a nice turquoise accent on a grey base.
The socks are made with a blend of cotton, polyester, and elastic. The feeling was quite different from all the previous socks we received through this subscription. They feel very lightweight, soft, and breathable. My husband was surprised of how different they felt, but he loved them as they didn’t hold on the sweat on the very hot and humid day he decided to test them out. He said this specific pair was his favorite from Basic Man, based on the feel alone.
Next is a pair of boxer briefs which came in turquoise with a dark 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 (April 2021)! 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 a white 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 April 2021. 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. He’s also really happy to have a pure white shirt this month as they are great to wear under his white linen shirts in the summer.
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. He’s really happy to have received a white shirt this month as it’s a color that is perfect for the summer to wear under light button-up shirts or under light linen shirts. But this month, he thinks the socks are the winners as they were light, breathable, more than previous socks, while still looking great with any outfit. 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. My husband is still wearing on a regular basis his basics from December 2017 box (with an expiry date of March 2019), and they still look great! 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.
