Basic Man December 2019 Review


Basic Rusty Red Tee, Size M

This month’s T-shirt color is a really nice one that suits my husband well. It is sort of a rusty red color that is slightly muted thanks to the heathered style. This 60/40 cotton/poly blend shirt comes pre-washed and we have never had any issues with them shrinking or anything.


My husband finds them to be soft and comfortable and wears them frequently while we are lounging around the house, or for a more simple look when we head out somewhere.


Burgundy Polka Dot Socks

These socks are a nice style and the quality is decent, too. This deep burgundy color will be great for my husband to wear for work. They are made from 80% combed cotton, 17% polyester, and 3% elastic and they feature the Basic Man logo on either side.


Here they are on. My husband finds them to be both comfortable and breathable.


Green Boxer Briefs

This month’s boxer briefs come in such a pretty color! I am always jealous each month when my husband receives these incredibly soft underwear made from 95% modal and 5% elastane. He says they are comfortable and so far each pair has held up well to multiple wears and washes. I love that they include a “destroy by” date which is a fun feature that gives me an advantage when it comes time to convince my husband it’s time to let his old pairs of underwear go!

Verdict: The colors in this month’s Basic Man shipment felt festive without being over the top. My husband appreciates how convenient it is to get these quality basics delivered to our door each month and I appreciate that he is able to freshen up his underwear drawer with some clean, hole-less boxer briefs! It’s a pretty solid subscription for $19.99/month plus free shipping!

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.

  1. I just signed up for my boyfriend. I just hope I get it and he can try out before I get billed on the first.

  2. My college-aged son loves this subscription so much that, as a Christmas gift, I bought a 6-month sub for my early 20’s nephew. Having done the holiday vacation laundry, I can attest to the quality of the items and love the fabrics used in both the t-shirt and the boxer briefs.

    These are the go-to items in my son’s wardrobe and his only quibble is that the socks are “too tame” for his tastes – he’s into novelty socks right now but these still fill a needed role when monkeys, sharks, or donuts aren’t quite appropriate. 😉

  3. My husband loved this subscription, but we stopped b/c of all the plastic and un-environmentally friendly packaging.

  4. They should have a version for women! But I guess you couldn’t call it Basic Woman LOL
