January 2018 Basic Man Review

My essentials include socks, underwear, and a tee.

They’re making some changes in upcoming boxes – I’m excited about the changes to the boxers – I’ll cover that in the review.

Basic Man Shirt

Their shirts are intended to be used as an everyday shirt or and undershirt.

This blue is a new color to the selection – with more color options arriving in February.

It’s a 60/40 cotton/polyester blend shirt. I think the fit is on the tighter side – so if you’re not looking for the more athletic fit, then size one up.

Basic Man Boxer Briefs

This is where the biggest change is coming, and I couldn’t be happier.

These are on the small side – making them just feel like wearing briefs.

Overall, I like the material – but can’t wait for the changes. They’re adding length to the legs to make them feel like more traditional boxer briefs and adding an opening fly. I can see these becoming some of my favorite boxer briefs after those changes.

Basic Man Socks

The socks don’t have any new features or changes, but they really didn’t need them.

They’re light, breathable, all while keeping my feet warm. I’m the biggest fan of the socks – but I think the upcoming changes might sway me!

Verdict: For $20, there is definitely value if you’re looking to fill, or re-fill, everyday essential items. The quality of each item is great, and with the upcoming changes, I think it’ll take them to a much better place for me.

To Wrap Up:

Can I still get this box if I sign up today? The monthly shipments won’t always be the same items as mine – so you can order anytime.

COUPON: Use coupon code MSADOUBLE to get 2 sets for the price of 1 in your first box!

  1. Great review Eric! I ordered as a gift for my husband. He is super picky about his undergarments so for the price it is worth the try!

  2. I took advantage of two sets for the price of one, and the quality was nice, but can’t see spending $19 a month on a pair of socks, a shirt, and one pair of underwear. The men in my house are not real picky so they seem to be content with a 6pk Hanes boxer-briefs from Walmart for $15. I can see paying $9.99 a month for a set. Glad they are changing up some of the colors.

  3. I just got this in the mail and I totally agree with this review. Really good quality. Customer service is really good too.

  4. Great review, signed up!

  5. Just ordered this for myself! (I’m a woman!) I think the boxers will be great for pajamas and the shirts will be perfect for weekends. With the code to get two sets it’s such a great deal!

  6. do you get to choose the color of your shirt?

    • You do not get to chose the color as far as I know
