Basic MAN is a men’s monthly subscription box by Get Basic that sends three basics: socks, boxer-briefs, and a t-shirt. The box is $24.99 a month and shipping is free for US subscribers plus they ship worldwide ($5 to Canada, $7 to the rest of the world). 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!
Our Basic subscriptions come with comfortably sustainable shirts, underwear, and socks for under $20 USD each month. We’ll keep your basics fresh, fun, and fashionable.
DEAL: Save 50% on your first month with coupon code HELLO50.
The shirt and underwear were packed in plastic bags and the socks had a tag on them. If you are looking for a similar subscription for women, well, now there’s a Basic WOMAN subscription available!
Everything in my box!
Basic MAN White Ribbed Socks ($12) The socks look so retro for some reason, maybe it’s the stripes?
They are made of combed cotton, recycled polyester, and elastic.
The body of the socks are white, the toes and heels are grey, and there is a signature teal blue stripe across the toe that appears on all Basic MAN socks. The cuffs have maroon and black stripes. The socks are mid-calf length and fit shoe sizes 8-12+.
Basic MAN Performance Boxer Brief, Size XXL ($12 for similar) Next up is a pair of comfy briefs. They are black with a grey waistband, fly, and crotch.
The material at the crotch provides some airflow for comfort.
The waistband also has a teal blue stripe at the top.
The underwear are made of 95% bamboo viscose and 5% elastane, while the mesh parts are 92% recycled polyester and 8% elastane. There is a tag that fades when the underwear are ready to be retired.
Basic MAN Crew Shirt, Size XXL ($16 for similar) The final piece is a crew neck t-shirt. The maroon color fits my Aggie Dad husband a little tight. He sized up from last month but he says the shirt still fits snug compared to t-shirts from well-known mass-market brands.
The shirt is made of 60% combed cotton and 40% recycled polyester. Just like the underwear, there is a tag that fades when the shirt is past its prime.
My husband liked the colors of his Basic MAN pieces this month! He sized up in both the underwear and shirt (the socks are one size fits most) and while the underwear is more comfortable, he thinks the shirt is still too tight for him to wear comfortably. He usually wears XL in those mass-market brands and 2XL in Basic MAN is still kind of clingy but then he prefers his shirts loose. The colors of all three pieces coordinated so well and I like that this subscription can help replace some of those tired, worn-out pieces in hubby’s wardrobe.
