Basic MAN Review June 2018

Basic MAN is a monthly subscription service that will deliver 3 essential pieces of your daily life to your doorstep. Every month, they will send you a t-shirt, boxer briefs and socks. It’s time to say goodbye to those saggy tee’s, stained underwear and socks with holes in them. They kindly sent us this package for review.

Basic MAN is a relatively new subscription box. They started shipping last year but this will be our first time reviewing it. I absolutely love the idea of receiving essentials in the mail every month. This is my kind of subscription box. It’s a great way to keep the fiancé’s wardrobe essentials up-to-date.

Subscription Details

Basic MAN subscriptions are pretty straight forward. They make it easy, all you gotta do is pick your sizes and a monthly plan. Then just sit back and pop a cold one.

  1. Select Your Size – Pick your sizes. Exchanges are always free.
  2. Pick A Plan – Choose from a monthly or a pre-paid plan.
  3. Check Your Mail – Sit back and relax. Your package is on its way.

Here’s a peek at the items we received in our June package….

High Quality T-Shirts

Are you the guy who wears an undershirt below your clothes? Or are you the guy who wears a tee as a fashion statement? Basic MAN shirts are for the both of you.

Our shirts are a hybrid between undershirts and your everyday tee. We use a heavier blended cotton fabric making them extremely soft while minimizing shrinkage and bunching. Subtle details give them a premium feel so you can wear them on their own.

First up we have a plain grey tee. I noticed that the sizing is a little on the small side which makes this shirt great for layering or as an undershirt. I can see the fiancé using this to layer under his sweatshirts or button up shirts.

Modal Boxer-Briefs

Typical boxer-briefs are made from cotton or polyester. These fabrics attract bacteria, don’t absorb sweat well, and smell. Instead, we use Modal, which is a sustainable fabric made from beechwood trees. It’s 50% more absorbent than cotton, breathable and odor resistant…but more importantly it’s ridiculously soft and comfortable. Ever heard of Modal fabric? Probably not, but trust us, this stuff is amazing!

Next up we have our boxer briefs. I love that they use a modal fabric and that they are a solid color. Simple, comfy and essential.

Multi-Purpose Socks

Do you ride around on those hover board things all day? Well, that’s weird. For the rest of us, our feet take a beating on a daily basis. Our socks aren’t just your regular dress socks. They are meant for everyday wear and tear. We use premium cotton and bamboo for optimal comfort. Wear them with a suit, or casually with a pair chucks.

Love, love, love the Basic MAN logo stitched at the top of the sock. Such a great little feature. Other than that I love the colors and the pattern, and the fact that they match the boxers.

Basic MAN Review June 2018 – Final Thoughts

Our very first Basic MAN delivery was a hit! This is the perfect subscription service for my fiancé. He’s a pretty simple guy, just keep him supplied with fresh socks, boxers and t-shirts and he’s a happy camper. I love that Basic MAN is basic. Nothing too fancy going on here. Just quality essentials for a great price. You really can’t go wrong for only $19.99 per month. It’s a no-brainer if you ask me.
