August 2019 Basic Man Review


Basic Green Tee

This month’s T-shirt color is really nice and definitely a color my husband and I usually gravitate towards when selecting clothing for him! He will be wearing this one a lot for sure. It is a 60/40 cotton/poly blend and it is a thinner, lightweight tee.

The shirts come pre-washed and always seem to fit my husband well.


Green and White Polka Dot Socks

I love the olive green color of the socks, but I almost think the white polka dots are too big, but my husband likes them and since they are his, my opinion is moot anyway! These are a nice quality sock made from 80% combed cotton, 17% polyester, and 3% elastic.


This is another comfortable pair that he will get a lot of wear out of for work.


Gray Boxer Briefs

This month’s underwear feel even silkier and smoother than usual for some reason! I’m always jealous of these each month when my husband receives them because they are so soft and he claims they are very comfortable as well. I love this light gray color and my favorite feature is always the “destroy by” date since that gives me some leverage when I try to convince him to get rid of some of those older pairs of underwear he likes to hang on to!

Verdict: Each month Basic Man delivers quality basics and classic styles. I love that the boxers and shirts are always simple and pretty universal since they are so basic, but that they mix it up a bit with some fun socks. It’s really a great subscription for $19.99 plus free shipping and it’s also incredibly convenient!

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. I just resubbed to this box at the request of my college-aged son. He loves these items, appreciates the quality and color variety. He’s also a fan of wild socks so these are his “tame” options.

    Can’t say enough about the quality of this box and the price is great!

  2. My husband did Basic Man for a year and really enjoyed it. We will do another year eventually. We would probably still be subscribing if not for his Whoven sub, Bamboo sock sub and Stitch Fix for men. The only reason we dropped Basic Man,Whoven and Bamboo sock is he still has alot of Tshirts, socks and undies in the packaging.

    The clothing is very comfortable.

    • That’s good to know you had a good experience with this box! I could see how the clothing would add up with all those subs though! 🙂

  3. I love this sub although I don’t currently have it. I will go back when needed. Can we see your hubs model the boxers? (:o) Of course I’m joking!

    • 😂 I’m sure he would! Lol
