May 2019 Basic Man Review
This shirt is just what you’d expect from a basic tee subscription like this. The shirt is plain in this great heathered teal-blue color. It fits my husband well and is soft and comfortable.
It is a 60/40 cotton-polyester blend that is pre-washed for you, so I don’t expect there to be any shrinkage!
The socks that they sent coordinate well with our shirt, although they don’t match perfectly which I liked. These are a blend of combed cotton, polyester and elastic and I think the teal and white waves are fun, but not too over the top in terms of their design.
These socks feel like they are great quality and they are comfortable as well.
These boxer briefs are so soft! I’m definitely jealous that I don’t have underwear this soft! I like that they just have a subtle tie-in to the other items with that simple teal band at the top. This is my husband’s preferred style of underwear and he reported that they were comfortable and fit well. I am always happy when he gets a new pair of underwear because it means I can throw away one of his old pairs that have seen better days! In case he has trouble parting with them in the future, they included a “Destroy by” date of April 1, 2021.
Verdict: Basic Man is a great subscription to keep men stocked up on the basics and it is so convenient getting them delivered directly to your door each month! My husband was happy with the items he received and felt like they were all decent quality. I think for $19.99/month + free shipping it’s a great value, especially when you consider how soft those underwear are!
