April 2019 Basic Man Review

This pre-washed grey t-shirt looks exactly like something my husband already owns, which in his case, is a GREAT thing. My man hates change! Though it is a v-neck, it is a very subtle version, meaning he will actually wear this. The fabric is super soft and feels like it would be great at keeping him cool. The cotton/poly blend should hold its shape well and last quite a while.

I love stripes and Will loves simple designs in muted color choices, making these socks clear winners. They feel like they are a great quality sock, and the cotton/poly/elastic blend is substantial without being thick or heavy.

These boxer briefs are made out of the most incredibly soft fabric! I need some leggings or underwear myself in this blend! They are stretchy and lightweight but feel amazing against your skin. Will is a boxer sort of guy but even he did a doubletake after touching these. He just might be a convert! He also mentioned appreciating the tagless design.

Verdict: This was our first Basic Man box and I have to say I am impressed with the quality. Will is pretty low key, and we often don't realize he needs new shirts, socks, or boxers until we realize all of his are worn out, covered in paint, or have new holes. He hates shopping so something like this that would be a regular shipment of great basics is a no brainer for him. I feel like the value is certainly there for such well made essentials that are comfortable and tag free. I also think there is a huge convenience value here too!

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.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $19.99, meaning each of the three items has an average cost of $6.66.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

We got our May delivery last week. You should contact them I think.

Ordered this for my husband back in February, have only received one box and get no response from customer service when inquiring about the next shipment. Will never order again or recommend to others.

Is anyone else having problems with the shirts shrinking? My husband is 6’0 and his shirts are barely touching his waistband now. They shrank probably about 2” in length😢

Eep, thats no good Amy. My husband isn’t super tall though, so I can’t say I have noticed.

Is this a one size fits all box or can you choose sizes? Esp for t-shirt and undies. Thanks!

Kelly nailed it! You choose the sizes you prefer. 🙂

You pick your size in the t-shirt and underwear. I think it’s a good deal – quality is very nice.

I ordered this box for my husband and this was his second month. He is VERY picky and won’t buy new clothes unless it’s absolutely necessary. I’m thrilled to say that he has liked everything he received both last month and this month. The quality seems really nice and he wears everything. It helps that it all coordinates without matching. I’m really happy I got it for him.

Haha my husband is the same Julia! Hates to shop, but liked these items a lot. Hopefully our luck continues!
