Basic Man April 2020 Review

We received this invoice which lists the items we received this month.


Basic Dusty Blue V-Neck Tee, Size M

This is the first time we’ve received a V-neck from this sub and I think it’s a nice change, although my husband says he’s not really a V-neck guy. The shirts used to come pre-washed and were a cotton-blend that didn’t shrink after washing, but this one is 100% cotton so we will have to see whether this new fabric shrinks or not! It is not as soft as previous shirts and it fits him a little smaller than the cotton-blend shirts do, but the fabric is really lightweight making it a great undershirt or summer tee.


Light Olive Palm Tree Socks

These socks are fun with the little palm trees all over and that blue stripe at the toe. While the pattern is fun, the olive color is more subdued making these a great sock for my husband to wear to work under his dress pants! They are made from 80% combed cotton, 17% polyester, and 3% elastic.


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


Light Olive Boxer Briefs

Just when I thought their boxer briefs couldn’t get any softer or look more comfortable, they now have these mesh areas which are also so soft and I would assume provide some breathability. I’m always jealous of these because they feel so cool and comfortable and they are pretty nice looking as well. My husband finds these to be just as comfortable as they look and they hold up well to multiple wears and washes. These are made from 95% modal and 5% elastane and I love that they feature a “destroy by” date which means I have a good excuse to throw them out once they eventually start to tatter and my husband claims they’re just “worn in.”

Verdict: My husband really liked the colors in this month’s Basic Man shipment and he thought the sock design was fun. This subscription is such a convenient way to get some quality basics delivered right to your door. It’s also fairly priced at $19.99/month plus free shipping for these three pieces!

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 wish they would make a basic women’s box. I would love to get a new pair of panties, T-shirt and socks every month. I am a pretty basic girl.

    • Oh, me too! I would love a basic woman box. 🙂

    • Yes! That would be great!

  2. Brandy, thank you for the review. I had a little hee hee moment when you mentioned your husband’s “wore in” fall back comment. My ex always said the same thing and my sons even said it when they were young. I always enjoy your reviews and you have such a lovely family! Stay healthy and safe!

    • Thank you so much for your kind words, Michelle! 😊 I’m glad it gave you a giggle…I’m sure I’ll be hearing a lot more of that once my boys are older! lol. Hope you stay safe and healthy too! ❤
