July 2019 Basic Man Review


Basic Black Tee

This month’s T-shirt feels a bit thicker than others we have received and it is super soft. It is a 60/40 cotton/poly blend and it almost feels like more of a luxe tee. The solid black color will pair nicely with pretty much anything, too.

The shirt fits my husband well and it comes pre-washed so hopefully, that won’t change!


Black and Gray Striped Socks

These are a great pair of socks! The colors are great and they are a blend of combed cotton, polyester, and elastic and my husband found them to be comfortable and breathable.


I love stripes, so these are actually probably more my style than my husband’s, but they will be a nice pair for him to use for work!


Black Boxer Briefs

Since receiving these boxes, my husband has been a fan of the underwear they send each month. He finds them to be nice quality and comfortable and I can attest to the fact that they are super soft. My favorite feature is the “destroy by” date that they have printed on the tag! Why do men have such a hard time parting with old underwear?

Verdict: Basic Man is a no-frills service that delivers quality goods each month ensuring men have what they need. For $19.99 plus free shipping, you get the convenience of having these basics delivered straight to your door and it’s always fun to see what colors and styles they send each month! I am happy to have my husband constantly refreshing these necessities since he tends to hang on to some of his worn-out ones a little longer than he should!

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. Thanks for reviewing this. I’m thinking of getting this for my teenaged son who is already 6’2 & broad-shouldered.

    Btw, your hubby reminds me a bit of one of my favorite people ever — Lin-Manuel Miranda! 😊

    • I knew he reminded me of someone, but couldn’t put my finger on it! I think he favors a friend of mine, too…but you’re right!

  2. My husband and I love this subscription, but I wish they had sent something other color t shirt for July. He already has an entire drawer full of black t shirts. I expected something a little more summery. He of course was fine with another Tshirt in black lol. Overall though we are always happy with with this sub and the quality is really nice.

  3. The destroy by date is hilarious! Although, I do think they should last longer than 2 years, my undies do. lol How rough are men on their boxers? geez. lol

    He looks so happy in the t-shirt pic!

  4. I feel like my husband would like this subscription but he likes his shirts a little bigger and I would like to see a 3x or even better, a 3xlt and would even pay a couple extra dollars for having the bigger size, but I like the styles they send
