June 2019 Basic Man Review


Basic White Tee

This month our shirt seems like it might work better as an undershirt since it is white and we have three messy kids! Although, that is perfect for my husband who wears them underneath his work shirts. It is a 60/40 cotton-polyester blend that is pre-washed and my husband hasn’t had any issues with shrinkage. I love that it features a “destroy by” date!


It is soft and fits my husband well and he says it is comfortable. The only complaint he does have is that the neckline gets a bit stretched out, but this is mostly due to our one-year-old who likes to cling to us as he was doing to my husband just before these photos!


Gray Socks

I love the color of these socks! They are actually very different from any pair that he has received in that they are a super loose weave and look really breathable which is perfect for the summer heat. I like the look of the knit which is a blend of combed cotton, polyester and elastic.


My husband thought they were comfortable and we liked the look of the teal accents!


Teal Boxer Briefs

My husband is a fan of their underwear after his last box! He claims they are really comfortable and I believe him after feeling how soft this smooth fabric is! The color is fun this month and a great tie-in to the color of the socks. While I appreciate that the shirt has a “destroy by” date, I am even happier that they include one for the underwear since my husband doesn’t like to refresh his collection until he is forced to by me!

Verdict: For $19.99/month + free shipping, Basic Man delivered some quality basics for my husband in some great colors. I like how simple this subscription is and at $6.66 for each of the three items, I think it’s a great value that is made even better through the added convenience of having these delivered right to your door!

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 code MSA50 to get 50% off your first box!

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

  1. My husband has been enjoying this subscription for a year. Very comfortable clothing.

  2. I give this subscription as a gift and have been pleased with the quality. May and June orders were shipped late with no explanation which gives me some concern. I emailed them about the late June order and their excuse was that Fathers Day had put them behind. That obviously makes no sense… Anyway, hope they stay afloat!
