Basic Man Subscription Box Review + 25% Off – November 2017
Basic Man aims to send men basic essentials on a monthly basis. You’ll get a new shirt, pair of socks, and underwear in each shipment.
This box is sent for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
We were sent both styles of shipments for review – we’ll take a look at both right here!
The Subscription Box: Basic Man
The Cost: $19.99 (shipping included)
COUPON: Use coupon code NEWBASICS to save 25% off of your first shipment
The Products: New basic everyday essentials for men.
These are two separate shipments of the monthly subscription!
The shipments arrive with an information card about the subscription itself, and not about the clothing – but you’ll be getting basic each month.
Let’s start with the darker tone shipment that we received.
Basic Man Shirt
The Basic Man shirt is intended to be a hybrid of an undershirt and an everyday tee.
The shirt was soft and breathable – I really liked wearing it as an everyday tee (I wore the white shirt further down in the review as an undershirt).
Basic Man Boxer-Briefs
The second monthly item is a pair of silky smooth boxer briefs.
They’re tagless and made with modal fabric. They’re REALLY soft and comfortable. My biggest gripe is that they’re just too short for me – but there isn’t an option to get a longer leg for the underwear, unfortunately. If this is the style you wear, though, they can quickly become a favorite.
Basic Man Socks
If you read my review, you might know that I love getting socks in subscription boxes – so, of course I’m excited to try a new pair!
I LOVED these mid-calf socks. They’re light, breathable, but still were warm enough in this cold weather – and they did a great job of staying up on my leg.
Ok – that is package #1 of 3 monthly basics – here was the second version we received:
Basic Man White Tee
This was identical in material to the first shirt, but had a slight v neck – and was perfect as an undershirt.
All of their clothing has this “Destroy By” tag as well, make sure you remember to change it up after a year or so of wear.
Please Note: The package had two sizes of shirts for us to try – but you’ll only receive one per month.
In addition to the shirt, we also receive a second pair of the same underwear reviewed above – but instead of mid-calf socks, we got their no-show option:
Basic Man No-Show Socks
While we’re out of the ‘no-show’ sock weather, I still use these when working out indoors – so I’m still more than happy to try them.
It’s the same construction and feel as the mid-calf version – I like them!
Verdict: This is a great option to keep replenishing your basic essentials. I found everything to feel really high-quality – but I do wish there were some customization options out of the gate. Currently, you can’t control the color of the clothing, the neckline, sock length, or length of boxers – those are some important details to me! Overall, if you’re comfortable getting any iteration of these items and need to replenish your essentials each monthly, then this is a great value at $20 shipped – and you can skip months if you’re filling your drawears a little too quickly!
